  2. Ouseph reaches semi-final with comeback

    GB’s one remaining hope in the men’s singles is fourth seed Rajiv Ouseph, who fought back after losing the first game to fifth seed Lucas Corvee of France to win 17-21 21-14 21-15 in just under an hour.

    At one point in the second game, Ouseph was trailing 13-10 before winning 11 of the next 12 points to set up a third-game decider.

    His reward for beating last year's runner-up is a semi-final against China's Liu Haichao, who came into the tournament unseeded.

    Ouseph's performance was a fillip for the home crowd after reigning champion Toby Penty fell in the third round.

    Penty, the No. 6 seed, received a bye through the first round and was then passed through to the third round too when his next opponent withdrew so his defeat – 21-11 21-19 to France’s Thomas Rouxel - came in the first and only match he played in Glasgow.

  3. Ellis in line for doubles glory

    Coming into the Scottish Open, Marcus Ellis was seeded to win both of the doubles categories on offer and as the business end of the tournament starts this weekend, that is still the case.

    Ellis and longterm men's doubles partner Chris Langridge are top seeds in Glasgow and secured a semi-final place by beating Sweden's Richard Eidestedt and Germany's Pete Kaesbauer 21-4 21-18 in the quarter-finals.

    The pair are looking for a fourth tournament win of the year to add to successes in Germany, Canada and their Commonwealth Games title in the Gold Coast.

    Earlier on Friday, Ellis and fellow top seed Lauren Smith had brushed aside Lasse Molhede and Sarah Lundgaard of Denmark to make the quarters of the mixed doubles.

    They then beat France's Ronan Labar and Audrey Mittelheisser 21-15 21-16 to book a semi-final against fellow-English duo Jenny Moore and Wolfenden, who edged out Irish duo Sam and Chloe Magee 21-17 21-19.

    Smith, and partner Chloe Birch faced a difficult quarter-final in the women's doubles, where they are seeded seventh. They were beaten 21-18 21-11 by top seed Gabriela and Stefano Stoeva of Bulgaria.

  4. Gilmour the local hero

    Kirsty Glimour, 25, the reigning Scottish Open champion, hails from Bellshill, less than 10 miles from Glasgow and will face top seed Yanyan Cai of China for a place in Sunday's final.

    The third seed has made a strong defence of the title she won last year with two straight-games victories before a walkover in the quarter-finals against Switzerland’s Sabrina Jaquet made sure Gilmour would be playing on the weekend at the Scottish Open for the second successive year.

    Twice a silver medalist in the European Championships, Gilmour has won silver and bronze medals at the last two Commonwealth Games.

    Gilmour was runner-up in the Scottish Open in 2015 and came into this weekend one game from a third final in four years.
