Basel: After defeating Chia Hao Lee of Chinese Taipei in straight games to go to the semifinals of the Swiss Open Super 300 badminton event in Basel, Kidambi Srikanth became the only survivor from India. In just 35 minutes, Srikanth defeated Lee 21-10 21-14 to earn his first last-four spot in 16 months. Srikanth is competing in his ninth tournament of the year. November 2022 was the last time he competed in a Hylo Open semifinal.

Srikanth, a 2021 world championships silver medallist, will next face Chinese Taipei's world no. 22 Lin Chun-Yi on Saturday.

It turned out to be a heartbreaking affair for Kiran George as his gallant fight ended with a 23-21 17-21 15-21 loss to Denmark's Rasmus Gemke in another quarterfinal.

Another upcoming Indian Priyanshu Rajawat also found Chou Tien Chen too hot to handle, going down 15-21 19-21 in a 43-minute clash at the St. Jakobshalle stadium.
