PETALING JAYA: It will be an all-Klang Valley final in the 100Plus National Junior inter-state mixed team badminton championships.

Defending champions Kuala Lumpur advanced beating Kedah 6-3 in the semi-finals at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara yesterday. And Selangor qualified with a 6-5 win over Johor.

While it was smooth sailing for KL against Kedah, Selangor were made to slog by surprise package Johor before clinching their winning point through the mixed doubles pair of Muhd Syawal Ismail-Yap Harn Xin, who beat Zairul Anuar-Nurul Intan Jaffar 21-12, 21-11.

It was heartbreak for Johor, who had upset last year’s runners-up and second seeds Penang in their opening Group B match before beating Sabah 8-3 for a place in the semi-finals.

PETALING JAYA: It was a grand night for hosts Denmark in the Copenhagen Masters at Falconer Centre on Monday. They made a clean sweep of all three titles at stake.

And it was Tine Rasmussen, who made it happen for the Danes.

She dashed Xu Huaiwen’s hopes of retaining the title, winning the women’s singles final match 21-18, 21-17.

Last year, the German beat Hong Kong’s Zhou Mi to claim the title.

Kenneth Jonassen played in his last international competition but there was no happy ending for him. He was beaten 14-21, 15-21 by compatriot Peter-Gade Christensen in the men’s singles final.

The men’s doubles title went to the 2003 world champions Lars Paaske-Jonas Rasmussen, who came from behind to beat Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen 14-21, 21-13, 21-19.
