Dane Jorgensen made light work of Japanese opponent Sho Sasaki in his semi-final, cruising to a comfortable 21-11, 21-12 victory at Birmingham's Barclaycard Arena on Saturday.
Things will undoubtedly be tougher for the Dane on Sunday, however, when he faces world No. 1 and 2013 YONEX All England champion Chen Long.
And after reaching his first YONEX All England final, Jorgensen says he is aware of the magnitude of his accomplishment.

"It's amazing," admitted the world No. 2. "I have been watching this tournament since I was a little kid and I'm really proud to have achieved that.
"I'm really happy with my performance out there. He came out trying to do some different things at the beginning of the second set but I just kept to the plan and I'm really happy I could pull it off.
"Now I want to go one step further and get on the top step."
Chen made his way into the final after overcoming Chinese icon and Olympic champion Lin Dan 21-13, 21-12.
He will enter Sunday's final as favourite, but after becoming the first European to reach the YONEX All England final since 2004, Jorgensen will have little to lose.
First up on Sunday will be the mixed doubles final between Chinese pair Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei and the Adcocks' conquerors Tontowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir, going for their fourth straight YONEX All England title.
Zhang will also be in action in the men’s doubles final alongside Fu Haifeng as they take on Denmark's Mathias Boe and Carsten Morgensen, while the women’s doubles is an all Chinese affair – Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang facing Bao Yixin and Tang Yuanting.
And the women's singles will see world champion Carolina Marin of Spain play India’s Saina Nehwal.
Nehwal overcame Sun Yu of China 21-13, 21-13 in her semi-final and the third seed claims she has already ticked off one of her long-term goals after reaching her maiden YONEX All England final.
"I have been dreaming of reaching a final here for many years," she explained. "I still can't believe it but it is something all the players dream of.
"It is a big tournament and everybody wants to be in the final. I just need to concentrate on the match and not think about winning or losing."
