KUALA LUMPUR: Indonesia’s Anthony Ginting continued his fine form by stunning Chen Long of China for the second time in a month at the China Open in Changzhou.
Anthony fought for one hour and 25 minutes to beat the 2016 Rio Olympic champion 18-21, 22-20, 21-16 yesterday to reach the men’s singles semi-finals.
He had dumped top seed Viktor Axelsen of Denmark in the second round on Thursday.
The 22-year-old Anthony takes on Chou Tien-chen of Taiwan today.
Anthony had also beaten Chen Long and Kento Momota of Japan en route to the men’s singles final at the Asian Games in Indonesia before losing to teammate Jonatan Christie.
Reigning world champion Momota is also through to the semi-finals in the China Open after a 21-9, 21-11 win over K. Srikanth of India.
Momota, who won the Japan Open last Sunday, faces Shi Yuqi of China next.
