Chen Yu Fei close to treble

Olympic Champion, Chen Yu Fei, is just one match away to make it three back-to-back LI-NING China Masters titles in front of her home crowd. 

In fact, Chen won her first title five years ago in 2018, followed by her second title in 2019. With cancellations in the subsequent three years, she has had to wait patiently for her chance to win a third in-a-row, a feat not achieved before. 

Chen secured an efficient two-game win over Korean Kim Ga Eun, 21-16, 21-15. Her opponent in the final will be compatriot Han Yue. Chen Yu Fei has a promising 5-0 record against Han, including two matches this year in France and Denmark.

India vs China final
Satwiksairaj Rankireddy/ Chirag Shetty continued their storming run when defeating He Ji Ting/ Ren Xiang Yu 21-15, 22-20. This has set up another encounter with world number ones, Liang Wei Keng/ Wang Chang, who put on an entertaining show for the home crowd against Chen Bo Yang/ Liu Yi, winning 21-17, 14-21, 21-15.

Repeat of the World Championships final
Fans will be able to enjoy another clash between Zheng Si Wei/ Huang Ya Qiong and Seo Seung Jae/ Chae Yu Jung, their eighth clash of 2023. 

Since the historic win at the World Championships in Denmark for the Koreans, Zheng/ Huang have logged three wins and will be hoping they can deliver in Shenzhen to win back the title they lifted in 2018. 

Finals begin Sunday 26 November 1pm (local time)
