    Day 3 at the Yonex Welsh Open

    KM on 03/12/11

    Day 3 at the Welsh Open

    As the end of the tournament draws near, the 3rdday of play was filled with top quality badminton from some of Europe’s finest.  Welsh Ladies Singles hopeful 7th seed Sarah Thomas took on top seed Ragna Ingolfsdottir of Iceland.  A tough opponent for the Welsh number 1, and proving a little too much,  the top seed moved one step closer to the title taking 28 minutes to get the 21-12, 21-14 win over Thomas.  Welsh Men’s Doubles Martyn Lewis & Matthew Hughes got through their Quarter Final match to set up a Semi-Final tie against number 1* Martin Campbell & Angus Gilmour of Scotland.  After taking out fellow Welsh Men Phillips & Strange the Welsh pair were looking to take revenge on the Scotsmen and move one step closer to regaining the Doubles title they won back in 2006.  However, a 2011 title was not meant to be and the Welsh men went out in a well fought 3 set match 11-21, 21-15, 21-16.
