Chinese women player Yulu Bai shocked the defending champion Amee Kamani of India by winning the nail-biting semi final match 3-2. First frame was very close and on colour balls it went for more than half hour only for safety followed by black-ball re-spot, which Amee won. The second frame was taken by Bai having a break of 35 but Amee sent a strong message by crafting a break of 63. In fourth frame Yulu Bai curtailed Amee on the score of 5 by crafting two breaks of 31 and 46. Last frame was tough initially where both did not give any chance to each other but a loose shot by Amee allowed Yulu Bai to score a break of 45 and obtain lead. Merely Amee got any chance after that but in next three four visits, Bai obtained sufficient lead that Amee had only option to shake hands. In another interesting semi-final, Ng On Yee of Hong Kong thrashed former World team champion Vidya Pillai of India. This was entirely a one-sided match where Ng On Yee crafted breaks of 60, 52, 46 and 50 in all three frames to take away whole match towards her side. Most of the time Vidya was just a mute spectator and later congratulated Ng On Yee for her victory.
