Robertson and Emms on Swiss roll
NATHAN ROBERTSON and Gail Emms remain on course for their third final in successive weekends when they reached the last four of the Swiss Open in Basel tonight.
They beat Lee Young Dae & Ha Jung Eun (Korea) 15-6 15-13 and are now just one win away of following up their Yonex German and Yonex All England final pushes.
And they were joined in the last four by women's doubles pair Ella Tripp and Jo Wright. The second seeds beat Nathalia Poluakan & Mundiasti Rani (Indonesia) 10-15 15-2 15-11.
But there was no three out of three as England No 1 Tracey Hallam was beaten in straight games by French top seed Pi Hongyan.
Off court the Swiss were celebrating today with the news that Wilson are to sponsor next year's Swiss Open.
