The top seed in the Women's Singles was also beaten - Xie Xingfang coming out on top against Zhang Ning in another all-Chinese final 11-3, 11-9. Chinese pairings also won the doubles competitions, with Cai Yun and Fu Haifeng beating Lars Paaske and Jonas Rasmussen of Denmark 15-10, 15-12 and Gao Ling and Huang Sui beating the number two seeds Wei Yili and Zhao Tingting 15-10, 15-13. The home nation also had something to cheer about as Nathan Robertson and Gail Emms beat Thomas Laybourn and Kamilla Rytter Juhl of Denmark 15-10, 15-12. (AP)
