China's unheralded Chen Jin defeated four-time world champion and reigning Olympic gold medalist Lin Dan in the men's singles semifinal at badminton's China Masters on Saturday.

But the defeat did not damage China's hopes of stamping its domination on the competition and sweeping the tournament, as Chinese players made it to the finals of all five events to be played Sunday.

Chen beat "Super Dan" in a close first set and went on to take the semifinal match in Changzhou city 25-23, 21-15.

"I don't want to say anything, other than the gold medal is ours (China's), I don't want to talk about how I played," an obviously disappointed Lin said following the match.
