Zhang Jike has played against Joo Se Hyuk 6 times and has prevailed everytime.

The day before Joo Se Hyuk had produced one of his career performances in beating World number 4 Timo Boll. The whole crowd was behind Joo and they carried this momentum on through to the Zhang Jike match. However, no matter how much crowd got behind the underdog, Joo Se Hyuk could not withstand the strength and depth of Zhang's attacking shots!

Zhang Jike quoted in a press conference that he wants to make the final. His dream has come true. Wang Hao is to face Jun Mizutani in the other semi final. Could the final be a repeat of lasts years World Cup?
