Brits’ superior game plan

Hong Kong’s world #9 Tse Ying Suet  / Tang Chun Man cause the upset of the day by downing the world #8 defending champions Chae Yujung / Seo Seung Jae of Korea for the first time in their three meetings, 21-16, 21-16.   

Seventh seeds Gabrielle Adcock / Chris Adcock were on course to wrap things up in straight games but former world #2 Lu Kai with current partner Chen Lu dragged it out. The Brits’ superior game plan nevertheless delivered a 21-17, 21-23, 21-19 victory.
