Chinese shuttlers filled all five spots in Sunday's finals of the Indonesia Open Super Series and are assured the women's doubles title that will feature all-China final.

Mixed double Zheng Bo and Gao Ling overcame teammates He Hanbinand Yu Yang in a quick 21-15, 21-13 win in the semifinal here Saturday, becoming the first to ensure a final place for China.

Her berth for women's singles final was a great relief of the Chinese squad after the defeats of Xie Xingfang and Zhang Ning, who are the world's no. 1 and 2 respectively, in earlier stages.

Zhu, champion of the Malaysia Open, will play veteran Wang Chen of Hong Kong SAR for her second Super Series title this year.

But it was Bao Chunlai who stole the show at the Bung Karno Indoor Stadium, beating local hero Taufik Hidayat in a very tough win of 21-19, 21-19 in the most awaited semifinal showdown Saturday.

Unaffected by noisy home fans who kept shouting for Taufik, Baoavenged defeat in last year's Indonesia Open final from the six-time winner of the tournament.

He will take on Malaysia's top shuttler Lee Chong Wei who upset under performed Chen Hong of China 23-21, 21-10.

In women's singles, Zhao Tingting and Yang Wei grabbed an easy 21-15, 21-11 win over England's Gail Emms and Donna Kellogg to ensure an all-China final.
