It was heartbreak for Wang Chen yesterday when injury forced her to withdraw from the Indonesia Super series in Jakarta while leading mainland top seed Zhu Lin in the quarter-finals. Hong Kong's top player pulled out after winning the first set 21-17 and leading the second 6-2. Zhu will now meet Pi Hongyan of France. Wang, the fifth seed, has been struggling with injuries and withdrew yesterday after pulling a muscle in her arm, to protect her Olympic challenge. Teammate Zhou Mi went down to Indonesia's Maria Kristin Yulianti in three sets.
