SHANGHAI, China, Nov. 22  -- China's world No. 2 Lin Dan scored an easy win over Jan Jorgensen of Denmark to claim the men's singles title at the ongoing China Open badminton here on Sunday.

    The finals of the China Open attracted the biggest number of spectators of these days.

    Jorgensen stunned the Chinese audience by edging out Chen Jin of China, while Lin eased out all his opponents in the previous rounds.

    Lin ended the first set at ease, as usual, delivering a masterful performance to lead from the very beginning. Jorgensen seemed to be in trouble in finding his own rhythm. Lin claimed the first set 21-12.

    Jorgensen tried to recover in the second set, only to find himself 1-7 behind Lin after several long rallies. He then made use of Lin's two errors to pull back to 3-7 before Lin speeded up to establish a 12-5 lead. Jorgensen seemed to have used up his energy after that, and Lin sealed his victory with another 21-12.

    Lin seemed excited after the final.

    "I feel happy to win China Open. I was troubled by injury all through these days, and I also feel tired because of the tight schedule. Anyway, winning a champion at home is exciting."

    Jorgensen seemed satisfied with his performance in this season. "It was a tough game and I hadn't expected to reach the final in this tournament, starting with beating Lee Chong Wei. Beating ChenJin yesterday was a big achievement and I am just happy to reach the final. I got the chance to play him (Lin Dan) and it was amazing."

SHANGHAI, China, Nov. 21 -- Denmark's world No. 16 Jan Jorgensen disappointed Chinese spectators to edge out fourth seeded Chen Jin of China 11-21, 21-18, 22-20, securing the chance to the final at the China Open badminton here on Saturday.

    Chen's injury became the decisive element in today's match. Danish delight: Jan O Jorgensen downed Chen Jin and will face Lin Dan (below, right) for the China Open crown.

    Chen started the match with a perfect form, establishing an early lead to win the first set 21-11.

    Jorgensen, who defeated world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia in the first round, managed to recover in the second set, while Chen delivered a stable performance to get a 16-12 lead. However, Jorgensen began to catch up afterwards, leveling the score 17-17 and won the second set 21-18.

    In the third set, Chen led by 16-12 again, and was leveled again. Chen suffered from injury when the score got to 16-15. Though Chen strived to knock down two powerful attacks, he could not even jump up after that. Jorgensen took the chance to seal the victory 22-20, entering China Open badminton final.

    Jorgensen admitted that he had some luck to win the match.

    "It was tough to play before he got the injury. In the beginning I was struggling a little bit, and he was able to play long rallies," Said Jorgensen after the match.

    "He was playing very confident at the first set, but he got injury and I was trying to play longer rallies, and it worked out."

    "Tomorrow, probably Lin Dan, the best badminton player ever. I am just proud to be in the final. I've never played Lin Dan before. I will do everything I can and it will be amazing."

    Chen spared no effort to battle against his injury, but he failed at last.

    "I didn't grab the chance in the second set, and then I was troubled by the injury. I don't want to say too much of my injury, losing is losing. I tried my best. That's the most important point."

    Jorgensen will probably meet China's world No.2 Lin Dan in the final.

SHANGHAI: Danish shuttler Jan O Jorgensen is on cloud nine again after claiming another big scalp in the China Open here, beating homester Chen Jin to march into the final.

The 21-year-old unseeded player, who had beaten top seed Lee Chong Wei and Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand, defeated the fourth seeded Chinese 11-21, 21-18, 22-20.

“It’s great to make it to the final in Asia and here in China, which you can say is the nation of badminton. This is my first win over a Chinese player and it feels so good,” said the second-ranked Danish player after Peter Gade-Christensen.

“Tomorrow I can only dream of winning and it will be really tough to play against Lin Dan, who is probably the best player ever in men’s singles.”

Lin Dan defeated South Korean Park Sung-hwan 21-10, 21-11 in the other semi-final.

Chen Jin suffered from cramps midway through the second game but chose not to concede a walkover. He fought until the end to the cheers of the home crowd. Limping and hanging on to the last points, he could still deliver some cross smashes to put pressure on Jorgensen.

“It’s tough to play against a player who is injured,” said the Dane.

“You think a lot about what you do and how you have to play him. It was a bit more annoying when he just flew up and did the cross smashes. He is a good fighter. He fights for every shot and hats off to him.”
