BANGKOK, May 20 (Xinhua) -- Chinese women's doubles Zhang Shuxian and Zheng Yu came back from behind to beat Uber Cup champions Lee So Hee/Shin Seung Chan in the badminton Thailand Open quarterfinals here on Friday.
Lee and Shin played a critical role in South Korea's 3-2 victory over China in the Uber Cup final, and the duo was on the way to the victory after taking the first set with a big margin.
But the Chinese pair staged a rally and took the next two games to win 2-1 to secure a berth for the semifinals.
The Chinese teammates and top seeds Chen Qingchen and Jia Yifan suffered a turnaround against Nami Matsuyama and Chiharu Shida of Japan.
Li Shifeng and Olympic champion Chen Yufei made it to the men's and women's semifinals respectively, while Zheng Siwei/Huang Yaqiong and Wang Yilyu/Huang Dongping defeated their respective opponents in the mixed doubles quarterfinals. ■
