Pearly Tan-M. Thinaah booked their second consecutive semi-final appearance this year after easily beat Chinese pair Li Wen Mei-Liu Xuan Xuan in straight games in the Indonesia Masters quarter-finals.

Tan-Thinaah only needed 37 minutes to confirm the well-deserved 21-10, 21-12 victory that saw them turn in a comprehensive attacking performance to move into the semis to face Yuki Fukushima-Sayaka Hirota of Japan.

The world number six pair improved significantly since exiting the Malaysia Open opening round, also reaching the India Open last week.

On the back of this performance, they looked to have regained the confidence and chemistry with each other.

Meanwhile, men's doubles pair Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik were sent packing after a straight game 17-21, 10-21 defeat against Chinese pair He Ji Ting-Zhao Hao Dong.

Chia-Soh were great against Liang Wei Keng-Wang Chang in the second round, but were no match for this Chinese combination whose power play and continuous stinging smashes delivered most of their winners.

Mixed doubles pair Goh Soon Huat-Shevon Lai also lost in straight games 16-21, 19-21 against Thom Gicquel-Delphine Delrue.
