Shi Yuqi (CHN) first men's singles finalist
The tournament's number one from China, Shi Yuqi, played in the first game overwhelmingly dominating. His opponent Anthony Sinisuka Ginting (INA) struggled hard to play against him at an equal level. With little effort, it seemed, Yuqi won the first game (21-9).
In the second game, Ginting was able to improve and put more pressure on Yuqi. Although stronger playing, the Indonesian lost to Yuqi: 17-21.
Shi Yuqi has a fifty percent chance to play against his compatriot Chen Long. He will finish the first round of semi-finals with his match versus Sai Praneeth B. (IND).
