Date: 3/3/2012 9:50 AM
Thomas Laybourn and Kamilla Juhl continue their fantastic run at the Yonex German Open in Mülheim. The former world champions from Denmark moved into tomorrow's finals by beating Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungtongkam of Thailand in two straight games.

"We really played a solid good match today and we controlling the match from the begginning to the end. Tomorrow, the final will be against Korea´s Lee/Ha who have played really well this week. So I am expecting a really tough match and hopefully we can keep our level and playing good to take the title home to Denmark. I'm allready really pleased with our results this week. It is very good points for the rankings and for the qualification for the Olympics. But we want more than this - we want that title", said Thomas Laybourn on his official Facebook fansite.

And there is more joy for Europe as home favourite Juliane Schenk stormed into the finals by beating former world number one Wang Xin of China in two games. After the match point the 3.000 spectators were on their feet to give the 29-year-old German a Standing Ovation for her great performance.

Jan Ø. Jørgensen lost to Simon Santoso. After having played very well during the week, it was not Jørgensen's day. His Indonesian opponent won quite easy in two games and will face Lin Dan in the finals.

BE.tv will cover all tomorrow's finals from 14.00 CET.
