Top seed Son reaches world badminton semi-finals
Glasgow (AFP) –
Top seed Son Wan-Ho was the first player through to the semi-finals at the World Badminton Championships in Glasgow on Friday.
The world number one from South Korea beat India's Kidambi Srikanth 21-14, 21-18 to guarantee his first world medal.
"Today I am really happy with my performance because this is my first semi-final," said Son.
"Srikanth was coming back in the second set and won seven points in a row and I was getting very nervous. I was just telling myself, 'One point at a time.'
"If I had lost the second one, who knows what might have happened?"
