Singapore: World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei sped into the Singapore Open semi-finals with style. Chong Wei demolish Thailand's Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk 21-8, 21-14 in 29 minutes with a breathtaking fashion, Lee at one point even trying a shot from underneath his leg which fell short of the net.

On Saturday, Choong Wei will meet India's K. Srikanth, who is touted to be India’s next big star. K. Srikanth beat Hong Kong's Hu Yun 17-21, 21-14, and 21-19 -- after upsetting seventh seed Nguyen Tien Minh a round earlier -- for a place in the semi-finals.

Chong Wei has defeated Srikanth with straight set in last year’s Hong Kong Open. However, Chong Wei could expect more resistance from Srikanth on Saturday.

While Chong Wei bulldozed his way into the men’s singles semi-finals, Malaysia's No. 1 men’s doubles pair Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong was humbled by Taiwanese pair, Lee Sheng-mu-Tsai Chia-hsin, 16-21, 14-21 in just 29 minutes.

“Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong defeated the Taiwanese at last year's Macau Open, but this time, the Taiwanese duo was impressive at the front court and broke Wee Kiong’s rhythm. Wee Kiong lost his usual good control at the net today.” said Pang Cheh Chang, the national men’s doubles coach.

In the other men’s singles semi-final, China’s Du Pengyu will play Simon Santoso of Indonesia.
