Liao and Su won the first game 21-17, while the defending Commonwealth Champions due to a good start won the second game 21-16 in a match where the tension was high.

‘Crazy match’
Marcus Ellis and Chris Langridge continued to impress at this year’s Denmark Open. The World number 29 is ready for the semi-finals beating Liao and Su 22-20 In the decider.

- It was a crazy match. There is not much other to say, Langridge says.

- We should not had put us selves in that position, where it gets tight, because we had a 4-5 point lead, but sometimes you just has to fight through it, Ellis says.
