The Irish number one pairing of Sam and Chloe Magee from Raphoe, Donegal , have booked their way into the semi-final with a sensational win over the number one seeded pair of Chris Langridge and Heather Olver.
Going into the quarter final the Irish pair knew it would be a tough test as the pair is ranked 20 spots higher than them on the World ranking at number 23 in the world.

This now sets up a semi-final later on Friday against Anders Skaarup Rasmussen and Lena Grebak of Denmark who are seeded four in this event.
