England are guaranteed a medal in the women’s squash singles as Georgina Kennedy and Sarah-Jane Perry will face each other in the Commonwealth Games semi-final on Tuesday.
Perry overcame Wales’ Emily Whitlock 3-0 after Kennedy beat Malaysia’s Rachel Arnold 3-0.
“We’ll both be massively up for it,” said Perry, 32.
England’s defending men’s champion James Willstrop also reached the semis, where he will face Wales’ Joel Makin.
Former world number one Willstrop beat Scotland’s Rory Stewart 3-2 in a tight encounter and said he was “digging in hard” as he took the final game 11-8.
“At least now it gives me a couple of goes at a medal,” said the 38-year-old. “I said this last time, but there isn’t going to be another singles Commonwealth Games I don’t think, so I was going to give it everything in that fifth.
“That was the overriding thought, just give everything because I want to be back and play again.”
