On November 25, Beijing time, the semifinals of the 2023 China Badminton Masters will be held in Shenzhen!
Mixed Doubles Semifinals:
No.4 seeds Seo Seung Jae/Choi Yoo Hyeon take on Hong Kong's Tang Chun Man/Tse Ying Suet!
Xu Cai defeated Cheng Xing/Chen Fanghui in the last round to advance to the semi-finals of mixed doubles for the third time in a row, and as the world champions this season, they will be the biggest obstacle in the national championships in any event. Deng Junwen/Xie Yingxue are 30-21 this season, and are back on track after a slump in previous seasons, and have won 1 championship and 2 runners-up this season. In terms of head-to-head record, the Xu Cai combination won 3 wins and 2 losses, and this season in the Australian Open, the Xu Cai combination won 2-0!
No. 1 seeds Zheng Siwei/Huang Yaqiong against No. 3 seeds Feng Yanzhe/Huang Dongping!
Although they are not in excellent form for winning consecutive championships last season, the IELTS pair's 53-9 and 5 championships and 3 runners-up results are luxurious enough, and they are still the first people in mixed doubles! The Feng Huang combination has some impression of the peak of their debut, even if there was a downturn in the season, but the results of 7 championships and 2 runners-up are a real honor for the two. The national mixed doubles insurance was formed again, but only once in the semi-finals!
The most recent meeting was in the final of the Japan Masters last week, when the IELTS team won the championship 2-0!
Women's Singles Final:
Wang Zhiyi challenges No. 8 seed Han Yue!
At a time when the semi-finals of women's singles have been monopolized by the TOP4 all year round, advancing to the semi-finals has become a fortunate thing for the two of them this season! Defeating An Seying and eliminating Nozomi Okuhara, Wang Zhiyi reached the semi-finals for the third time this season; defeated teammate Zhang Yiman in the last round, and ushered in the derby again in this round, while Han Yue played in the semi-finals for the seventh time this season.
Head-to-head record: Wang Zhiyi 4-2! Aside from the "ancient" head-to-head record, each other has won two games in the past two years. This season, Wang Zhiyi won 2-0 at the All England Open, and at the Arctic Open, Han Yue won 2-1 and won the championship.
No. 3 seed Chen Yufei takes on Kim Ga-eun!
As one of the TOP4 members, Chen Yufei became the last "face" of the TOP4 in this station after eliminating He Bingjiao (An Xiying and Dai Ziying lost, and Akane Yamaguchi did not participate)! This is Chen Yufei's 14th semi-final of the season, in comparison, Jin Jiaen only advanced to the semifinals for the third time in the season. After Marin, the biggest seed in the 4/4 zone, was out, Kim Ga-eun's path to the promotion was unimpeded. Three games 2-0 victory over Song Shuoyun, Ohori Aya and Ruan Cuiling!
Head-to-head record: Chen Yufei 6-1! Chen Yufei's only loss was at the 2022 Korea Open, where Chen Yufei lost 0-2. In the two meetings this season, Chen Yufei won all of them, including a 2-1 victory in the 1/4 finals of the Asian Games!
