"Everything went wrong and I am very disappointed," said Wei Feng. "I did not feel any pressure being top seed but I played too few attacking shots."

Meanwhile, Tee Jing Yi continued her streaks in the women's singles category by fighting off a valiant challenge from P.C Thulasi of India. Jing Yi managed to withstand the pressure after losing the first set 18-21, pulling off a spectacular comeback in the next two sets with 21-19, 21-19 to finish off the Indian in a nail-biting 73 minutes match. She will play Kirsty Gilmour of Scotland in the semi-final.

After losing the opener game to the number one seed Shinta Mulia Sari and Yao Lei of Singapore 19-21 in first set of the women's doubles event, Lai Pei Jing and Lim Yin Loo managed to shrug off their disappointment to convert the second set into their favor with a 22-20 win. Coming into the decider, racquets were smashing, players were yelling, and momentum swung wildly back-and-forth as both pairs were clearly playing on emotion. The Malaysian finally broke down the Indian pair to book their semi-final berth with 21-19 victory in the rubber game. Vivian Hoo and Woon Khe Wei also cruised to semi-final with an easy win against Sandra le Grange-Jennifer Fry of South Africa 21-7, 21-10.
