Mostly frontrunners entering semifinals
Around half of the quarter finals games have been played, and there haven't really been any surprises yet. In nearly every encounter, the respectively higher ranked player managed to win the game.
In the mixed double France vs. Malaysia though, it was the French pairing GICQUEL/DELRUE (FRA)  who won over GOH/LAI (MAS)  in three games.
As expected, defending olympic champion Carolina MARIN (ESP) and defending world champion PUSARLA V. Sindhu (IND) both successfully played their womens singles.
Looks like we're looking forward to a very exciting semifinal Saturday with lots of top-class players!
