In the first game, the pair were comfortably beaten with the Chinese pair scoring eight consecutive points to take the game from 12-10 to 20-10 and they never looked back.

They rounded the first game out with a 21-11 win and in the second it was much of the same. Huang and Wang scored four consecutive points early on in game two and managed to hold that lead throughout the game. Chris and Gabby fought on valiantly but in the end, the tournaments top seeds were just too much for them, winning the second game 21-17.
