The fourth seed Ghosal rallied from a two-game deficit to eke out a 8-11, 7-11, 11-6, 11-8, 11-6 win over the 12th seed from New Zealand. Ghosal thus became the first Indian to reach the singles semi-finals since the sport was introduced in the Games programme in 1998.

However, it was heartbreak for Dipika, who went down to England's Alison Waters in the quarter-finals today. Sixth seed Dipika squandered a one-game advantage to go down 11-8, 2-11, 9-11, 6-11 to fourth seed Alison.
