Veteran Baun reaches final
Danish veteran Tine Baun has reached the final of the Yonex All England Open Championships.
The 33-year-old, who retires after the tournament in Birmingham, saw off Korean fifth seed Sung Ji-hyun 24-22 19-21 21-19 in a gruelling 75-minute semi-final to keep her dream of a third women's singles title alive.
The seventh seed, winner in 2008 and 2010, will face 18-year-old eighth seed Intanon Ratchanok in the final after the Thai youngster stunned India's second seed Saina Nehwal 21-15 21-19.
Baun said: "I had a dream of being in the final, but I didn't expect it - but I am still definitely retiring."
Men's singles world number one Lee Chong Wei defeated Thailand's Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk 22-20 21-8 in 36 minutes to secure his place in the final for a fifth successive year.
Without arch-rival and Olympic champion Lin Dan to contend with, he will be confident of claiming a third All England title but he will still need to overcome China's second seed Chen Long.
Chen reached his first All England final by coming from behind in both games to see off Denmark's Jan O Jorgensen 21-19 22-20.
