Proceedings organised on a group basis; in Class 1, Nam Kiwon accounted for India’s Sandeep Dangi (11-3, 11-6, 11-5) and Chinese Taipei’s Chu Wei-Chung (11-6, 11-6, 11-7). He now faces Kuwait’s Hamed Latif in what is the title decider. Likewise Hamed Latif accounted Chu Wei-Chung (11-9, 5-11, 12-10, 12-10) and Sandeep Dangi (11-7, 11-2, 11-3).
Success for the Korea Republic in Class 1, it was the same in Class 2 where Cha Sooyong alongside colleague, Park Jin Cheol, the no.2 seed, remained unbeaten to top their respective groups and thus reserved semi-final places. In the one remaining group, China’s Cao Yanming, the no.3 seed, ended matters in first position; a quarter-final contest needed, he reserved his penultimate place by overcoming Macao’s Chu Cheng Lao (11-3, 11-4, 11-2).
Likewise in Class 4, the Korea Republic was very much in evidence, an event in which the top four seeds all secured semi-final places. Kim Younggun meets the host nation’s Adyos Astan, the no.4 seed; Kim Junggil, the no.2 seed and like Kim Younggun from Korea Republic opposes China’s Zhang Yan, the no.3 seed.
Korea Republic in evidence; in Class 3, China is very much in the limelight. The semi-finalists known, Feng Panfeng meets Hong Kong’s Ko Hang Yee: also from China, Guo Fei opposes Thailand’s Yuttajak Glinbanchuen, the no.2 seed.
Meanwhile in Class 5, it is a similar scenario. First places in the group for Cao Ningning and Chinese Taipei’s Lin Yen-Hung, the no.2 seed; both booked semi-final places as a result of topping their respective groups. In the penultimate round Cao Ningning meets Korea Republic’s Kim Kiyoung, the no.3 seed, Cheng Ming-Chih opposes colleague Lin Yen-Hung.
