Indian women’s doubles pair of Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand continued their dream run at the All England Open as they fought their way past newly-formed Chinese pair of Li Wen Mei and Liu Xuan Xuan to reach the semi-final stage. The world no.17 Indian duo secured a 21-14, 18-21, 21-12 victory over Mei-Xuan in the quarter-final fixture at Arena Birmingham on Thursday. Treesa-Gayatri had already shocked former world no. 1 pair of Yuki Fukushima and Sayaka Hirota 21-14, 24-22 in a second round contest. They had also upset the seventh seeds from Thailand, Jongkolphan Kitiitharakul and Rawinda Prajongai, in the first round. They are the last Indian’s standings in the tournament as the likes of Lakshya Sen, HS Prannoy, Kidambi Srikanth and the men’s doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty had all been eliminated in the second round. Meanwhile, former world champion and two-time Olympic medalist PV Sindhu suffered a shock first-round exit. 

This is the second straight semi-final appearance for Treesa-Gayatri at this Super 1000 event. The Indian duo took control of the match from the 9th point in the first game. They were solid in defence and relentless in attack, taking an 18-12 lead and then went on to pocket the opening game comfortably. After the change of ends, Treesa-Gayarti controlled the proceeding, moving to a 10-6 lead at one stage, but Li and Liu soon found their bearings and chipped away at the lead. The Chinese pair clawed their way back into the match, capping five straight points to take a 11-10 lead. A couple of errors from the Indian duo handed game-point to the Chinese team, before Li’s powerful smash took the match into the decider. In the third-game, it was one-way traffic as Treesa-Gayatri stormed into an 8-1 lead. Although the Chinese tried to fight back, the Indian’s maintained their tempo and eventually sealed the match.
