Gayatri Gopichand and Treesa Jolly have made it to the semi-finals of the All
England Open 2023 after winning a three-game thriller against China’s Li Wen
Mei and Liu Xuanxuan in the quarterfinals. The Indian duo had previously
reached the semi-finals of the tournament in the last edition, but lost to China’s
Shu Xian Zhang and Yu Zheng.

Gopichand and Jolly dominated the first game, winning it comfortably with a score of 21-14. However, they stumbled in the second game, allowing their opponents to come back and win it 18-21. The deciding game saw Gopichand and Jolly take an early lead and they never looked back, eventually winning it
21-12 and securing their spot in the semis.

The Indian duo will now face the winner of the match between South Koreans Baek Ha Na and Lee So Hee and Indonesia’s Apriyani Rahayu and Siti Fadia Silva Ramadhanti.

Gopichand and Jolly are the only Indians left in the tournament after Lakshya Sen lost to Anders Antonsen and HS Prannoy lost to Anthony Sinisuka Ginting. PV Sindhu was knocked out in the first round while Saina Nehwal pulled out of the tournament on the opening day.

It is a significant achievement for Gopichand and Jolly, who have shown great resilience and determination to make it to the semi-finals. As women, they are representing India on a global stage and are proving that Indian women are just as capable of achieving success in the sport of badminton as their male counterparts.
