China's Guo Yue win in Table tennis semifinal

The table tennis events were full of emotion. Despite the expectations, Singapore bagged another bronze in the Asian Games in Doha, after paddler Li Jiawei lost to China's Guo Yue in the women's singles semi-final encounter.

Indeed, Guo beat Li 11-7, 6-11, 12-10, 11-5, 11-7 to go into the final.

25-year-old Li is seeded 4th while 18-year-old Guo is seeded second for the championship. And Guo lived to her billing, taking the first game 11-7 in just five minutes. But Li fought back to take the second game 11-6.

Play was more even in the third game, but Guo went on to win 12-10. Guo piled on the pressure as she took the next game, 11-5.

It is fair to say that Li was still determined to give a good fight, but succumbed 11-7, giving Guo a 4-1 victory and a place in the final match.
