Er...seems to be some confusion here.

Only the top team from each group gets a advance to the semifinals. The second placed team can only participate in the Bronze playoff, plus contend with challenges from the two losing teams of the semis.

The complete results are as follows:

Mens' Team

Through to Semis: China, Germany, South Korea, Japan

3rd Place playoff: Austria, Croatia, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, China

Womens' Team

Through to Semis: China, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, South Korea

3rd Place playoff: Austria, United States, Romania, Japan

Thank You for correcting me, Huaiwei !

The Second semi between Singapore & South Korea starts at 14.30 , the winner will face either China or Hong Kong ! If Singapore wins this, they would proceed to the finals. It would mean either a silver or gold for Singapore, finally breaking the 48 year medal drought for Singapore at the olympics ! The last time Singapore won was in Rome 1960 when Tan Howe Liang won a silver in weightlifting.

The first semifinals for the womens' teams are underway between South Korea and Singapore. If Singapore wins this one, it will be assured of an Olympic medal for the first time since 1950.

The first game has just been completed with Singapore's Feng Tianwei beating South Korea's Dang Ye Seo 3-0.

Singapore, JIA YOU!

The current match is nerve-wreaking. Its South Korea's Kim Kyung Ah, the same player who denied Singapore's Li Jiawei a Bronze medal four years ago. Li took the first game, but Kim took the second. Li just won the third by a narrow 11-9 score, and she can hardly consider this a done deal.

Jiawei, be patient, and the game is yours! JIA YOU!!

Sadly, SIN 1st single lost to the KOR, Is Singapore have a better than position Indonesia in the last seagames and Asian games ? As far as I know, Thailand, Malaysia, and Vietnam have a better position than Indonesia in the last seagames, how bout Singapore ?

Er...in Table Tennis Singapore is the undisputed kingpins in Southeast Asia, having swept almost all the golds in the past few SEAgames and being consistently amongst the highest ranked.

The first Singles match was won by Singapore and the second by South Korea. Each side must win another two more games before victory is there's, so this is a correction to a comment I made earlier where I said Singapore must win all the rest of the matches. :P

Mmh.. No I don't mean only in table tennis (we know that with all of chinese player in Singapore, who can beat Singapore in South East Asia), I mean in overall table, Is Singapore have a better position than Indonesia ?

And back to ping-pong topic, what happen IF Singapore lost to South Korea, will they still have a chance to get a medal (at least bronze ?) or they won't get anything ? Thank you

The third match is now underway. South Korea's Park Mi Young and Kim Kyung Ah versus Singapore's Wang Yue Gu and Li Jia Wei. For the record, the Singapore pair has never been able to beat the South Korean pair.

The first games has just been completed, and its 11-7 in Singapore's favour. Can they keep the momentum going? Singapore, JIA YOU!

You mean the overall medal standings? Oh of course Singapore is nowhere in sight. We haden't won any Olympic medal since 1960! :lol:

If they loose the match, they still stand a chance for the Bronze, but they will have to win two matches just to win that. They must win the US (which they already won during the group stage), and then beat either Hong Kong or Japan.

I just left the match for a second, and SIN already won the 2nd set ? congrat,but in the 3rd match Kor already lead 4 - 2 just in a second ? a very interesting match here... :)

Indeed! Table tennis is a very fast game and quite entertaining to watch. I am in a bundle of nerves now however...haha.

Singapore has closed the Korean lead and they are now at 5-5!

Alright the next game is between South Korea's Dang Ye Seo and Singapore's Wang Yue Gu. Having just played the doubles, Wang will have to recover fast, but she is known to be the most patient player of the three, which may be an advantage when dealing with the Koreans who are known to be defensive players.
