Double morning blow for Japan

Women's Singles: Quarter-finals

It was hardly an ideal start for Japan today, as two of their athletes exited at the quarter-final stage to Chinese opponents-with one of them suffering an injury.

Hitomi Sato had to withdraw early in the hours of Saturday, giving Wu Yang a simple passage to the semi-finals. Top seed Kasumi Ishikawa suffered losses in four straight games, after a dominating performance by He Zhuojia in a match lasting just under 39 minutes (12-10, 11-5, 11-9, 11-4).

And the main stages continue!
