India had a strong presence in the men's singles field at the Hong Kong Open Super series but only male shuttler has managed to make it through to the last 4.

Sameer Verma claimed his first Super Series semi-finals berth after registering a 21-17, 23-21 win over Malaysia's Chong Wei Feng in the quarterfinals.

He will next take on Denmark's third-seeded Jan O Jorgensen in the semifinals. It will be a momentous occasion for the 22 year-old, as he would be making his maiden appearance in the semifinal of a Super Series event. He had previously defeated Japan's Kazumasa Sakai 19-21, 21-15, 21-11 in the pre-quarters.
