Taiwan's Tai Tzu-ying reaches semi-finals at Indonesia Open

Taipei, July 6 (CNA) World No. 1 Tai Tzu-ying (戴資穎) got the better of Scotland's Kirsty Gilmour to move into the semifinals of the women's singles of BLIBLI Indonesia Open 2018 in Jakarta on Friday.

Tai comfortably defeated the world No. 28 Gilmour 21-16, 21-11 in 31 minutes.

She will next play 8th-seeded He Bingjiao of China, who defeated third-seeded Pusarla V. Sindhu 21-14, 21-15 on Friday.

The Indonesia Open, which has prize money of US$1.25 million, is an HSBC BWF World Tour Super 1000 tournament, one of only three Super 1000 level tournaments this year. The other two are the China Open and the All England.

Taiwanese Liao Min-chun (廖敏竣) and Su Ching-heng (蘇敬恆), who upset the 2nd-seeded Danish duo of Mathias Boe and Carsten Mogensen in the tournament's opening round, advanced to the men's double semifinals with a 21-13, 21-8 win over Indonesians Berry Angriawan and Hardianto Hardinato.

They will face 7th-seeded Takuto Inoue and Yuki Kaneko of Japan on Saturday for a place in the finals.
