SHEN Yanfei’s progress halted in quarters

JIANG Huajun reached the semi final of the STARTS Women’s World Cup in the Japanese city of Kobe. She accounted for Spain’s SHEN Yanfei in five games (10:12, 11:8, 11:2, 11:7, 11:8) to book her place in the penultimate round.

At the semi final stage, she meets China’s LIU Shiwen, the top seed, who overcame Singapore’s YU Mengyu in four straight games (11:6, 11:4, 11:2, 11:8), issuing a clear announcement that she has no intention of surrendering the title won one year earlier in Huangshi.

JIANG Huajun grew in confidence; it was a far different performance from the straight games defeat she had suffered last year at the semi final stage of the Women’s Singles event at the GAC Group 2012 ITTF World Tour German Open, when beaten in four straight games by SHEN Yanfei.

In the lower half of the draw Japan’s Kasumi ISHIKAWA was beaten by the attacking skills and consistent counter top spin play of Singapore’s FENG Tianwei (11:7, 9:11, 8:11, 11:9, 11:4, 9:11, 11:7); for Ai FUKUHARA it was a very different technique that brought about her downfall. She suffered against the patience and the backspin artistry of China’s WU Yang; a five games defeat was the end result (7:11, 11:7, 11:8,11:9,11:2).
