    indonesia booked 2 places in MD semi tommorow, as 2nd seed yoga/uki won their battle in rubber sets, and rendra/frans also survive after lost the first set to their opponent.
    they will fight for the final spot to the other 2 malasian pairs as the 1st seed beat bona/mohamad also in rubber sets
    so it's all seeds from 1st till 4th seed who will play in semi tommorow...

    In the WD, Nitya Krishinda/Nadya Melati lost to Jung Youn Kyung/Kim Min Jung in 2 very very tight sets 20-22, 23-25 :eek: The Korean pair will meet Fong Chew Yen/See Phui Leng in the semi-final tomorrow. The other match is an all-Korean semi-final as Yoo Hyun Young/Jung Kyung Eun will meet their compatriot Hong Soo Jung/Sun In Jang.

    It will be Indonesia vs Malaysia in both semi-finals tomorrow. The top-seed Gan Teik Chai/Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif saw off Bona Septano/Mohd Ahsan 23-21, 21-17. Their opponent in the semi-final will be the 3/4 seed Rendra Wijaya/Frans Kurniawan, who beat Khoo Chung Chiat/Mohd Razif Abdul Latif 16-21, 21-14, 21-15.

    In the bottom half, the second-seed Yoga Ukikasah/Yonathan Suryatama Dasuki beat Au Kok Leong/Azrihanif Azahar also in 3 sets 21-11, 11-21, 21-10. They will meet the 3/4 seed Tan Bin Shen/Ong Soon Hock who won easily 21-12, 21-15 over Chew Choon Eng/Hong Chieng Hun. The 2 semi-finals will be interesting, but, the MAS pairs do have the advantage due to their experience.

    SEMI-FINALS Lineup

    MEN'S SINGLES
    Jeffer Rosobin vs Andreas Adityawarman -- Jeffer has more experience and he should take his third Satellite title.

    Tan Chun Seang vs Alamsyah Yunus (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- so far so good for Alamsyah and he has the chance to reach another Final.

    MEN'S DOUBLES
    Gan Teik Chai/Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif vs Rendra Wijaya/Frans Kurniawan -- the young INA pair has done well to reach the semi-final and fulfill their seeding. It will be a wonderful result if they can beat the World no 11 pair.

    Tan Bin Shen/Ong Soon Hock vs Yoga Ukikasah/Yonathan Suryatama Dasuki (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- Yoga/Yonathan will also be severely tested by Tan/Ong tomorrow. I hope they can win, although Tan/Ong have the edge.

    WOMEN'S SINGLES
    Sutheswari Mundukasan vs Gu Juan -- similarly, the Malaysian player is more experienced and has the edge.

    Anita Raj Kaur vs Sylvinna Kurniawan (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- it will be a tough match for Sylvinna, but, I am rooting for her to go all the way!

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES
    Jung Yun Kyung/Kim Min Jung vs Fong Chew Yen/See Phuil Leng (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- the presence of Kim Min Jung will tilt the tie in favor of the Korean pair.

    Yoo Hyun Young/Jung Kyun Eun vs Hong Soo Jung/Sun In Jang -- I think it will be an all-Korean Final in the WD.

    MIXED DOUBLES
    Hirokatsu Hashimoto/Yu Wakitavs Shin Baek Cheol/Kim Min Jung -- again, Kim Min Jung's experience should help the Korean pair.

    Tantowi Ahmad/Yulianti vs Lim Khim Wah/Amelia Alicia Anscelly (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- it will be a tough match against the young Malaysian pair, considering the fact that they have beaten Lingga/Devi Tika Permatasari yesterday. I hope Tantowi/Yulianti can progress to the Final.

    Wow, Sylvinna is doing well in this tournament. She is cute too :p. I hope she will win this championship.

    Rendra Wijaya/Frans Kurniawan also have chance to beat the world no:11. I wonder if Rendra will follow the footstep of his brother, The Candra Wijaya, to become another legendary player.

    This is a little ironic given that Kim, 20, is 4 years younger than her women's doubles partner, Jung Youn Kyung, and has spent only 2 years on the national team as opposed to Jung's 4. Still, you are right in that Kim's results certainly make her a veteran of these satellite events with 5 gold, 3 silver, and 5 bronze medals in the past 2 years.

    She is definitely the more experienced in that mixed pair. Shin's only international result is a singles bronze in a satellite last year.

    Loh is enjoying himself here watching many new faces, especially from Korea and Japan, putting up a good show.

    He told me that he has also enjoyed his stay with you in Manila during the last SEA Games. Hope to meet up with you soon.

    Anita Raj Kuar

    Reported by Loh, now guest of kokcheng.

    Seeded 3/4 in the Women' Singles, Anita impressed with 3 wins and justified her seeding with her appearance in this evening's Semi-Finals. But she will meet Indonesia's Sylvinna Kurniawan, now coached by the famous ex-China player, Fang Kaixiang, who was the contemporary of "The Thing". Sylvinna had the distinction of disposing 2nd Seed, Jang Soo Young of Korea 21-13, 23-21 in 35 min in R2.

    Along the way, Anita beat the following:

    QF: Kartika Putri Yuan (INA) 13-21, 21-13, 21-8 (20')
    R2: Bellaetrix Manuputty (INA) 21-19, 21-17 (30')
    R1: Jung Kyung Eun (KOR) 21-15, 21-15 (25')

    While Sylvinna also beat:

    QF: Chen Jiayun (SIN) 21-16, 21-15 (26')
    R1: Wakita Yu (JPN) 21-18, 12-21, 21-16 (48')

    If Anita should succeed in overcoming the ever improving Sylvinna, she might have to face compatriot, #1 Seed, Sutheaswari Mudukasan, who had relatively easy straight games victories over the following:

    QF: Sannatasah Saniru (MAS) 21-14, 21-17 (30')
    R2: Chang Pei Hsin (TPE) 21-12, 21-14 (25')
    R1: Mong Kwan Yin (HKG) 21-16, 21-14 (30')

    Sutheaswari herself will face Gu Juan (SIN), who survived two Koreans and an Indonesian by beating them with the following scores:

    QF: Kim Moon Hi (KOR) 21-15, 20-22, 21-13 (55')
    R2: Sun In Jang (KOR) 21-13, 21-14 (24')
    R1: Aprillia Yuswandari (INA) 21-19, 21-18 (35')

    So this evening's WS SF matches should prove very interesting.

    Here are some shots of Anita:

    Most of the semi-finals went according to my predictions.

    There are going to be all-Indonesian Final in the MS, all-Korean Final in the WD, all-Malaysian Finals in the WS and MD, and Korea vs Indonesia in the XD.

    In the MS, Jeffer Rosobin yet again proved that experience counts as he beat the Pelatnas young player Andreas Adityawarman in 3 sets 12-21, 21-18, 21-12. He will meet another Pelatnas prospect, Alamsyah Yunus, who reach his 3rd Satellite Final. Alamsyah beat Tan Chun Seang in straight sets 21-15, 21-13. He lost to Jeffer in the JPGG Surabaya Satellite a few months back. Can he break his duck and win his first international title?

    Malaysia seals the WS title as both Sutheaswari Mundukasan and Anita Raj Kaur won today. Sutheaswari beat Gu Juan of Singapore 21-18, 21-15, while Anita beat the Djarum prospect Sylvinna Kurniawan 21-13, 21-16.

    It is a similar story in the MD as the more experienced Malaysian pairs have beaten the Pelatnas young pairs. Gan Teik Chai/Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif have no problem beating Rendra Wijaya/Frans Kurniawan in straight sets 21-15, 21-15. Tan Bin Shen/Ong Soon Hock also impressed as they strive to regain their top 15 ranking after a long absence. They beat Yoga Ukikasah/Yonathan Suryatama Dasuki in 3 sets 9-21, 21-13, 21-13. Both Pelatnas pairs still lack experience in facing higher ranked opponents (esp against fellow Malaysian and Korean pairs) if they are to break into the top 15-20. Next year will be a crucial year for them :cool:

    Korea is dominant in the WD as both their young pairs show that they are only second behind China in terms of regeneration in this event. Jung Youn Kyung/Kim Min Jung have no problem in beating the Malaysian pair Fong Chew Yen/See Phui Leng 21-17, 21-12 in 30 mins. They will meet their compatriot Yoo Hyun Young/Jung Kyun Eun, who beat the World Junior runners-up Hong Soo Jung/Sun In Jang 21-18, 21-14.

    Finally, it will be Korea vs Indonesia in the XD Final. As expected, Shin Baek Cheol/Kim Min Jung beat the Japanese pair Hirokatsu Hashimoto/Yu Wakita in 3 tight sets 22-20, 16-21, 21-18. Their opponent in the Final will be the young and improving Pelatnas pair of Tantowi Ahmad/Yulianti. The young Indonesian pair reach another Final after they beat Lim Khim Wah/Amelia Alicia Anscelly also in 3 tight sets 21-18, 14-21, 21-16. I hope Tantowi/Yulianti also win their first title as a pair tomorrow. Yulianti has won 2 Satellite titles when she was still paired with Lingga Lie.

    FINALS Lineup

    MEN'S SINGLES
    Jeffer Rosobin vs Alamsyah Yunus -- a rematch of the JPGG Surabaya Satellite Final. Jeffer is the favorite to win his 3rd titles this year. However, Alamsyah might surprise.

    MEN'S DOUBLES
    Gan Teik Chai/Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif vs Tan Bin Shen/Ong Soon Hock (MATCH OF THE DAY) -- if this match was played 2 years ago, Tan/Ong would have won. But, we have seen a dramatic improvement in Gan/Zakry this year as they rise to World Ranking of 11, while Tan/Ong slid down the ranking due to Ong's injury. It will be an interesting battle between two young Malaysian pairs currently ranked no 3 and 4 behind Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari/Lin Woon Fui, Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong.

    WOMEN'S SINGLES
    Sutheaswari Mundukasan vs Anita Raj Kaur -- Mundukasan has the experience.

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES
    Jung Youn Kyung/Kim Min Jung vs Yoo Hyun Young/Jung Kyung Eun -- as mentioned before, Kim Min Jung's experience should count.

    MIXED DOUBLES
    Shin Baek Cheol/Kim Min Jung vs Tantowi Ahmad/Yulianti -- ditto as above, but, I am hoping my prediction is wrong :D Tantowi/Yulianti can put up a good fight and create an upset :)

    Comments from Loh in Alor Star:

    All the semi-final matches proved to be very exciting.

    In the singles, both Jeffer and Sutheaswari proved too experienced for their opponents. Although Jeffer lost the first game in the MS, he used his experience to great effect in dousing off the persistent attacks from compatriot Andreas in the remaining games. Andreas was a spent force in the final game as Jeffer was able to anticipate most of his moves with consistent returns and left the young Andreas completely devoid of ideas in the end.

    Dimunitive Gu Juan of Singapore matched Sutheaswari technically in the first game but made too many unforced errors. In the second, Gu started off quite well until the interval when Sutheaswari took advantage of her experience to towel down more often to regain her stamina and forced Gu to make several mistakes to take the game and match rather easily.

    Alamsyah was a mini dynamo on court and completely outrun and outwit the taller Chun Seang, much to the delight of the appreciative Indonesian crowd who cheered him on.

    But the best entertainment of the evening must surely belong to the MD match between Gan/Zakry and Rendra/Frans. Zakry was sensational and deserved star recognition for his gutsy display. His fast cross court returns often caught their opponents off-guard. Poor Rendra fell victim to one of those returns at the net and almost injured himself badly from a dive at the right forecourt side corner. Luckily he missed the rectangular metal weight at the right post. In one of the fast exchanges, Frans fell on the slippery floor at the left baseline but managed to regain his balance and composure to help his team win the point with a smash at the net!

    The other MD match saw the older Malaysians Tan/Ong coming back from behind with a first game down to Indonesians Yoga/Yonathan to snatch the two subsequent games for a deserving win!

    But having two Malaysian pairs in the finals may not be too appealing to the spectators, as are those for MS (two Indonesians), WS (two Malaysians) and WD (two Koreans). :( Only the Koreans and Indonesians will challenge the XD crown.

    But it is a just reward for the Malaysians for capturing two titles as the Kedah Badminton Association has put in a great deal of effort in ensuring a smooth running of all the events for this Malaysian Satellite 2006. It remains to be seen whether Korea or Indonesia can match Malaysia's haul.

    In passing, I could only suggest that the 'heat' in the KBA Hall be reduced with the provision for more standing fans for the comfort of the supporters. ;)

    Kokcheng and I will miss the Finals as we are taking the coach back to Singapore tomorrow evening. But we may see some of you again at the Cheers Youth International at Toa Payoh Sports Hall from Monday onwards.

    Kokcheng's elder son, Jian Hao, last's years U-15 Boys' Doubles champion with Iskandar, will be competing in the U-17 singles and doubles. Do come and support him.

    A very detailed and well-written report as always from Loh. Thanks!

    With only one match between different countries tomorrow, the Finals are going to be a little bit of an anti-climax :cool:
