    Because its weekend. So nothing to worry about the less audience watching the last match.istora will be full of spectators. And the most important thing is they consider more about the tv airing schedule

    SEMIFINAL (12.00pm) => https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...39CF17-112E-4664-829D-24650DAF4096&d=20190126

    LIVE TV COVERAGE (Court 1)

    MS top-half draw will feat the battle of last two world champions, starring two current stars Kento Momota and Viktor Axelsen. A daunting task for Danish ace to topple the in-form Japanese according to starking statistics, only won once of ten meetings including the last one in 2018 Japan Open semifinal. Momota silences ferocious home crowd to outwit Anthony Ginting, all badminton enthusiasts expecting the tight contest instead of lop-sided match as Momota is too strong and displaying flawless performance to dominate and dictate the pace throughout the match, leaving Ginting frustrated and falters with 21-9 / 21-10 . Later on, Axelsen takes revenge over last week defeat, changing better tactic this time to break Chen Long solid defense with accurate placement and sharp smashes. The other last four encounter will pit two unseedeed players, local heartthrob Jonatan Christie versus Anders Antonsen. Christie overcomes Srikanth Kidambi narrowly, 21-18 / 21-19 while Antonsen tackles Malaysian youngster Lee Zii Jia with identical scoreline, 21-13 / 21-13. It’s chance for the high-spirited Christie to reach final round and challenge either Momota or Axelsen.

    A good day for China WS as their leading ladies secure semifinal berth. He Bingjiao beats compatriot Chen Xiaoxin despite trailing behind in opening game, 21-18 / 21-14 and will take on the vast experienced player Saina Nehwal, first meeting between two players. The Indian eliminates Thailand promising talent, Pornpawee Chochuwong, 21-7 and more difficult fashion in second game, 21-18. Three-time World Champion Carolina Marin slays Pusarla V. Sindhu who looked so off-form last night and couldn't balance Marin speed and power. The Spanish sensation will up against Chen Yufei, the Chinese won their last encounter in Fuzhou last November. Chen extends her victory record over Ratchanok Intanon, dropping first game 14-21 then 20 years old Chen bounced back to seal the tie, 21-9 / 21-15.

    Spectators in Istora Senayan were brought back to Asian Games gold medal match memory when they watched The Minions against Alfian/Ardianto, a thrilling encounter that produces same story ending, Gideon/Sukamuljo prevail in 21-19 at deciding games. World number one and defending champion assure will take on tricky test Denmark duo Astrup/Rasmussen. Meanwhile two-time world champion Ahsan/Setiawan who going to independent way early this year beat reigning World Champion Li JH/Liu YC easily and have another Chinese combination as their next hurdle, Han CK/Zhou HD.

    CHN-JPN affairs in WD category as predicted won by Japanese pair, the Chinese is practically struggling badly to produce formidable pair as they once powerful. Chen/Jia have good start to take opening set , 21-18 against reigning World Champion but lost meekly in next two games, 14-21 / 8-21. The Olympic Champion Matsutomo/Takahashi beat Du Y/Li YH in 38 minutes, 21-13 / 21-15 and will take on home favourites Polii/Rahayu. In all Korea quarterfinals, the relatively new combination Kim SY/Kong HY march on to semis and will challenge Matsumoto/Nagahara.

    Interesting mixed doubles semifinal to follow, Zheng SW/Huang YQ will face All England champions Watanabe/Higashino. It’s a tough assessment for world number one to conquer the Japanese dynamic duo who topped MAS Masters podium last week, they potential to halt Zheng/Huang fine run. The soon-retired partnerships, home heroes Ahmad/Natsir meet familiar faces Chan PS/Goh LY and look good to check into finale considering the Olympic Champions are too dominant in their head to head stats.

    The main reason is practically to accomodate LIVE broadcast by local free to air TV station Kompas TV that has very limited time to air only 5 matches instead of 8. So the arrangement is quite unusual, certainly Kompas TV will choose the match involving home players.

    Chen/Jia don't seem to be going anywhere. Don't the CHN team have any new ideas?

    It's shame that they end up like this. They actually have the potential, winning some titles and WC before. CHN WD seems to be the weakest area now after dominating the category for years with absolute dominance.

    They're seriously trailed behind, WD becomes the weakest link if they face Japan in upcoming Sudirman Cup.

    Yeah, but I don't think that situation reduce China's chance to win SC. It should be noted that they can create a surprise just like in AG last year. They are also the winner from the last match between China vs Japan in SC 2017. I should say that JPN and CHN have the same chance to win the SC, though I rate JPN higher than CHN.

    When someone step on court, they can lose, whatever they are.
    Natsir has 4 times win the world champion title and 1 gold medal Olympic, that is great enough ^-^, this tournament just a tour to give thank to Indonesian from Natsir, I think.

    Anh to me, If Natsir wins this title, it's good. If Natsir cannot win. Never Mind! She is still so great.

    Just enough? lol
    Well, when it happens, it happens.

    Maybe that "^-^" of yours might have changed the nuance of your comments most of the times.

    I mean Natsir doesn't need to get this title to be great. She great already with her career ^-^. 1 Olympic gold medal is enough to be a great player, and she has more than that. This tournament just a opportunity to give thank to Indonesia fan from Natsir, so don't mind that she wins or not wins. Just enjoy the match.

    To me, Natsir's retirement is a sad news because Natsir/Ahmad is one of the XD that can challenge Zheng/Huang. ^-^

    Without Natsir, now just Wata/Higa, Wang/Huang, and maybe Dechapol/Sapsiree can challenge Zheng/Huang. it's a pity

    p/s: sorry, my English is not good, so I can choose the wrong words.

    ^-^ I haven't found the "head to head" before I say my prediction.
    I think I have to change my mind when I see that picture.

    Natsir/Ahmad will win today. ^-^
