TheStar PETALING JAYA: Malaysia's Choong Tan Fook-Chew Choon Eng continued their gallant run in the US$250,000 (six-star) China Open when they toppled fourth seeds Sang Yang-Zheng Bo of China to reach the men's doubles final in Guangzhou yesterday. The scratch Malaysian pair, seeded fifth, bounced back from a 2-8 deficit in the rubber game to break the hearts of the home supporters in the sensational 17-16, 13-15, 15-13 win in the semi-finals at the Tianhe Gymnasium. The win just came a day after they stunned world champions and second seed Lars Paaske-Jonas Rasmussen of Denmark in the last eight. However, another formidable pair awaits them in the final. Indonesians Candra Wijaya-Sigit Budiarto, world champions in 1999 but reunited only recently, set up a final date by ousting top seeds and All-England champions Jens Eriksen-Martin Lundgaard Hansen 15-6, 15-5 in the other semi-finals. But national doubles chief coach Yap Kim Hock was savouring the moment as his unheralded charges make their first final despite having played together for just two weeks. â€œBoth Tan Fook and Choon Eng played well (yesterday). They were even trailing 2-8 in the rubber game but they did not give up. They fought their way back and led 14-12 before eventually winning it,â€ said Kim Hock in a telephone interview from China. â€œIt will be tough against Candra-Sigit. The Indonesians are very talented but let us hope for the best from our players,â€ he added. Meanwhile, two young Chinese stars will vie for the men's singles after top seeds Lin Dan and Bao Chunlai dispatched of their opponents in yesterday's semi-finals. The 21-year-old Chunlai created the biggest upset of the day when he eliminated Athens Olympic Games champion Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia 10-15, 17-15, 15-12. Lin Dan defeated seventh seed Kenneth Jonassen of Denmark 15-1, 14-17, 15-6. It will also be another all-China final in the women's singles. Fifth seed Xie Xingfang edged China-born Pi Hongyan of France 11-1, 3-11, 11-7 while Wang Chen, from the Chinese autonomous region of Hong Kong, beat Dane Tine Rasmussen 11-9,11-5. In the only final played yesterday, third seed Jens Eriksen-Mette Scholdager of Denmark emerged as the mixed doubles champion when they defeated second seed Chen Qiqiu-Zhao Tingting of China 15-13, 13-15, 15-8.
