その後もAu選手が着実にポイントを重ね、第2ゲーム終了時にkoukal選手が棄権を宣言。Au選手が明日の決勝に駒を進めた。

*Koukal選手は寝違えて首を痛めてしまったそうです。

The second semi-final was between number one seed, Jan Koukal from the Czech Republic and number 4 seed Leo Au from Hong Kong.

At the beginning of the match, Au produced keen shots to move Koukal to all four corners. Koukal tried but his movement was not as sharp as  in previous days.

In the second, Au had some unforced errors and Koukal led for a moment.  However, Koukal still was not moving well, so eventually Au turned the game around. After Au took the secound game, Koukal stopped the competition. Au is going to the final tomorrow, meeting the second seed, Mohamed Asyraf Azan.

Koukal said that he slept in a bad position and had a pain in his neck.
