Treesa Jolly/Gayatri Gopichand advance to the Singapore Open 2024 semi-final

Indian women’s doubles pair Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand stayed in the hunt for a first title in three years by reaching the semifinals of the ongoing Singapore Open 2024. The WR-30 Indian pair defeated Tokyo Olympics bronze medallist Kim So Yeong/Kong Hee Yong in three games to advance.

Treesa/Gayatri had to rally back from a game down to win the match 18-21, 21-19, 24-22 producing some remarkable display along the way. Having lost the first game 18-21, the Indian duo trailed 12-18 in the second game and were at the brink of elimination. However, they fought back to win the next five points and reduce the deficit to just one point.

From that point, Treesa/Gayatri kept their composure to take the second game 21-19. The decider was closely fought with the Indian duo going to-on-toe against the World No. 6 Korean pair. Continuing their momentum, Treesa/Gayatri sneaked ahead with a three-point lead at 18-15, but Kim/Hong crawled back to level at 19-19.

There was once again a tie at 21-21 and then 22-22 before Gayatri won two consecutive points to complete their comeback and make their maiden semi-final at any BWF Super 750 event.

They will next face World No. Nami Matsuyama/Chiharu Shida of Japan for a place in the final on Saturday.
