Early this morning Chris Adcock and Gabby White (currently ranked world #7 and England #1) got through to their first ever Super Series final. If they pull off a win tomorrow then it will be only the second time that England have won a title on the Super Series circuit!
To get through to the final they beat world champions, and top seeds, Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei in the mixed semi final of the Hong Kong Open.
If you fancy watching the match, it's available on Youtube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCPghktOdPc
The final will also be live streamed tomorrow on Youtube, but because of the time difference this is likely to be about 5:30am :S If you're like me and don't fancy getting up that early then it should be available to watch on https://www.youtube.com/badmintonworldtv shortly after.
UPDATE: They won! An amazing achievement. You can watch the final at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2h1qW_abR-I.
