Unfortunately for Andrew Smith my prediction regarding his semi-final result was shattered by Chen Jin today. Chen crushed Smith 21-10, 21-5! Ouch, that hurts, especially since he has done well against the Chinese before. Maybe next time.
As for the rest of the semi-finals, well Lee Chong Wei beat Taufik Hidayat again, but this time it was much closer with Lee sneaking it out in 3 games, 21-23, 21-12, 21-19. Surprisingly Lee’s opponent will be the rising star of Denmark, Jan O Jorgensen who defeated Sairul Ayob Amar 21-18, 21-16. On the bottom we’ll have Chen Jin playing Lin Dan who beat Hsieh Yu Hsin 21-16, 21-14.
Lee Chong Wei is a pretty safe bet, but Chen Jin could beat Lin Dan. My money is still on a Lee vs Lin rematch of last week.
