    Good job by Wong, he should go all out now to capture the title and regain his top 10 ranking.

    What happened to Wang Chen, not like her to go down so tamely.

    Hyun Il was worried?

    Sport: Badminton/Taiwan Open: Hyun Il stands in Choong Hann’s way

    HAVING got the better of players from Thailand, Malaysia, Denmark and Indonesia, Wong Choong Hann will have to contend with a South Korean in the semifinals of the Taiwan Open.

    The southpaw has had an impressive run by defeating Boonsak Polsana, Pei Wei Chung and Peter Gade Christensen in that order to make the last eight.

    And he turned on his power in the quarterfinals as he outfoxed Indonesian Taufik Hidayat in straight sets. Choong Hann won 15-12, 15-4 to set up a semifinal date with Korean Lee Hyun Il.

    Playing his customary attacking game that he is renowned for, Choong Hann had the Indonesian pinned in defence for a larger part of the first set.

    Though the scoreline suggested that Choong Hann had it easy against Taufik, he begged to differ.

    “In the first set, it was neck-and-neck, and I was fortunate to win as he seemed to lose form all of a sudden,” said Choong Hann.

    “I kept the shuttle low and that prevented Taufik from utilising his smashes to hand me the first set.

    “In the second, Taufik was a spent force and made too many unforced errors and I wrapped up the match quickly to conserve energy for the semis.”

    Though Choong Hann and Hyun Il have not met on the world circuit, the duo crossed swords twice during the Malaysia/South Korea friendlies last July.

    Choong Hann won the first encounter 15-6, 15-6 in Alor Star and registered his second win – 15-9, 15-8 – in the third match in Kuala Lumpur.

    But Hyun Il has the satisfaction of having knocked out the Malaysian No 1 in the quarterfinals of the Bu-san Asian Games last year.

    Choong Hann is hungry to make up for his final defeat at the World Championships but knows that he will have his hands full against the Korean.

    And Hyun Il was also wary of the threat the Malaysian posed in the former’s bid to add to his Swiss, Dutch and German Open titles this year.

    Hyun Il, who played after the Choong Hann/Taufik tie spent time in the stands observing the quarterfinal clash and must have been impressed with the Malaysian’s quick defeat of Taufik.

    Choong Hann is optimistic that he has what it takes to tame the top-seeded Korean, who faltered in the quarterfinals of last week’s Hong Kong Open, going down to Boonsak.

    “I saw him in the stands watching me play Taufik and I could sense that he was worried,” said Choong Hann.

    “Hyun Il is physically strong and I will have to adopt the correct strategy against him.

    “But I will not change my attacking game and will try to keep the pressure on him throughout.

    “I am confident of upstaging him and make it to Sunday’s final, but the win will not be easy.”

    I think Wong will win the final. It would be a close match though.

    We still don't know who his opponent is though. Both are equally tough and strong.

    head-to-head results for mia and pi is 2-0 respectively

    So it looks like Mia will take it to 3-0 :) ;) :)

    Actually, I think that Mia is capable of beating every player in the circuit,accept for Zhang Ning. What do you guys think?

    Re: head-to-head results for mia and pi is 2-0 respectively

    Well, it depends on how do you define "capable".

    Theoretially, as long as player A can get 1 point from player B, then player A has a chance of beating player B. But back to reality check, the probability is the thing that determines the most time.

    Theroetically, Mia can beat anyone in the circuit except Zhang Ning (since Mia lost to Zhang ning 0-11). But back to reality check, what is the probabilty for this to happen. As long as there are Chinese players, Mia will have a Chinaman's chance to win the title.

    Sony seems to be wild this time at taipei open, but there is no problem for Chong Hann to tame him like before at the World Championship
