Busanan Ongbamrungphan (THA) beat Li Xuerui (CHN), 18-21, 22-20, 21-6
World #23 Busanan Ongbamrungphan removed seventh seeded London Olympic champion Li Xuerui.
Both women decided to play a physical match. Today, Li was very willing to move as much as move her opponent around which is not always the case. The Chinese sentimental favourite was on the verge of securing the match in straight games and spent all her hopes and energy attempting to.
