Glasgow: On Saturday, Malaysia’s Tee Jing Yi was defeated by Kirsty Gilmour of Scotland 13-21, 19-21 in the semi-finals at the Emirates Arena. Jing Yi inexplicably squandered a big 19-11 lead in the second game allowing Gilmour to come back to win game two.

"Kirsty came well prepared, I made some unnecessary mistakes in second set and just couldn't finish the game," said the disappointed Jing Yi. In last week's mixed team event, Jing Yi was able to down Gilmour in straight sets.

Gilmour will play Michelle Li of Canada in women's singles final.

"I've never played Michelle before so I'm looking forward to it. This is the position I want to be in," said Gilmour after the match.

Meanwhile, Chan Peng Soon-Lai Pei Jing’s journey also ended on Saturday when the Malaysian lost 15-21, 22-20, 13-21 to England’s Chris Langridge-Heather Olver. Even though Peng Soon was upset about some of the questionable line-calls, however, he admitted that they were also slower and couldn't keep up with their opponent's fast paced attacks.

"We didn't play as good as we did on Friday when we defeated number one seed Danny Bawa Chrisnanta-Vanessa Neo of Singapore. Pei Jing was tired after two intensive games on Friday. We tried our best, but it was not good enough," said Peng Soon.
