Kirsty Gilmour’s title push at the Yonex Dutch Open continued this afternoon after booking her place in the semi-finals of the women’s singles in Almere.
The Commonwealth Games silver medallist, who is chasing a hat-trick of final appearances after being runner-up in Belgium and champion in Prague in her last two events, produced another strong performance in beating American fourth seed Iris Wang.
Gilmour, who yesterday moved up to No. 26 in the world rankings, won 21-14 21-15. She took control of the first game from 6-6 and remained in front to take the opener comfortably.
