Semi-final day in Basel - pure excitement.

Today, Saturday, the semi-finals begin at 11.00 a.m. in the St. Jakobshalle in Basel. 

Three times it is Denmark against India.

Mia Blichfeldt challenges reigning world champion Sindhu Pusarla V. and in the men's event two former Swiss Open winners meet:
Viktor Axelsen (winner 2014) and Srikanth Kidambi (winner 2015).

The Indian world champion has good memories of Switzerland: in 2011 she won the Swiss International in Bern-Belp as a 15-year-old (!) and two years ago she became world champion in Basel.

Carolina Marin (Olympic champion 2016)

Und im Herrendoppel spielen Kim Astrup/Anders Skaarup Rasmussen gegen Satwiksairaj Rankireddy/Chirag Shetty. Das spezielle dabei ist, dass die Inder seit kurzem mit Mathias Boe eine dänischen Ex-Weltnummer 1 als Trainer haben.

Only one men's doubles team from Germany made it to the semi-finals. Mark Lamsfuss and Marvin Seidel (BWF 19) will meet the Malaysians Aaron Chia/Wooi Yik Soh (BWF 9), the number one seed. Who will get important points for the Olympic qualification?
