After a great performance at the recent China Open Super Series, Lin Dan is still looking strong as he heads into the semi-finals against Taufik Hidayat. It has been a long time since these two have played against each other in a big tournament, and at this stage of the event. Unfortunately for Lee Chong Wei fans the world number 1 did not play this tournament, and I’m not sure why, perhaps an injury, or an injured ego after losing to Lin Dan a couple weeks ago.

Surprisingly Peter Gade lost early on to the young Chinese player Gong Weijie who was then crushed by Chen Jin. Chen Jin will be playing Boonsak Ponsana in his semi-final. Another disappointment for the Danes was the early loss of Joachim Persson to India’s Arvind Bhat.

    I’ll play like that someday. Lin Dan, Taufik, LCW and Peter Gade are my favourites. :)
