Garcia came out strong with power and agility in the first game. Bunyan straightened out and gave a strong push in the second causing Garcia to sweat bit. But with good length and great boasts, Garcia was able to squeak out the game 12-10. Garcia raced ahead 3-0 in the third and played fast paced, with great straight length and straight kills. She wrong footed Bunyan a few times too, and won the third in comfortable fashion 11-4. Garcia books her place in the final without dropping a game so far.

Adam kicked things off playing very positive attacking well taking a fast 10-5 lead in the first. Ashley then seemed to settle his nerves and play smart and steady. He managed to play very disciplined and claw his way back to 10-10 hardly placing a foot wrong. In the tie-break, Ashley continued his momentum and pulled off the comeback taking a crucial first game. In the second it was much more back and forth with both players exchanging point after point. Adam was attacking to the front much more often rather than Ashley who was moving incredibly well, lifting himself out of trouble to perfection. Ashley takes that game 11-9. In the third it seemed as though Adam dug deep and learned from his mistakes in the first, attacking quick and playing patiently when in the back of the court. Adam takes the third 11-8. The last game switched momentum fast when in a matter of minutes Ashley took a 5-0 lead. He seemed a man on the mission and nothing was going to get in his way from the upset taking the match with a confident 11-2 fourth game. Great match from both players.
