JAKARTA, June 21 (Xinhua) -- Chinese badminton players stand a chance of winning four titles at the Indonesia Open as they have reached the finals of all five events but the men's singles.

World No. 3 Wang Lin of China faces Indian Saina Nehwal in the women's singles final in a rematch of the Singapore Open semifinal, which was won by Wang.

In women's doubles, Chinese No. 2 Cheng Shu/Wang Yunlie will vie for the title against Malaysia's Wong Pei Tty/ Chin Eei Hui, and Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng will take on South Koreans Jung Je Sung/Lee Yong Dae in the men's doubles final.

The mixed doubles final is also a China vs South Korea affair when Zheng Bo/Ma Jin play Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung.

In men's singles final, the only gold-medal match without a Chinese player, world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia will contend with Indonesian Taufik Hidayat.

"He is in his best condition compared to he was in All England and Swiss Open. I have fifty-fifty chance to win the final game," said Lee Chong Wei.
