A long day comes to an end…

Only shortly after 10pm the last games were over. Many long rallies, many close three-set games have “delayed” the tournament. Only one “non-Asian”, Brian Yang from Canada, could fight his way to Sunday. He will meet Syabda Perkasa Belawa of Indonesia in tomorrow’s semi-final. France have once again been conspicuous by their many good performances. Christo Popov in particular was beaten by the Chinese Li Yunze in a captivating game after winning a match against a Malaysian. Li Yunze had to give up in the quarter-finals. Also in the double disciplines the spectators got a lot offered. The current world number one and world champion Di/Wang (CHN) were already out shortly before the end, when they could catch up a 16-20 deficit in the third set and could also win the following game. They are now in the final tomorrow. Come by and see for yourself.
