New Zealand's Joelle King pulled off a sensational come-back - fighting back from two games down to secure her anticipated place in the last four.

The 18-year-old kiwi number one,a 3/4 seed, defeated Egypt's 5/8 seed Heba El Torky 6-9, 8-10, 9-2, 9-5, 9-1 in a 73-minute marathon to set up a clash with another Egyptian - event favourite Raneem El Weleily.

The 18-year-old defending champion from Alexandria, who is expected to become only the second girl in history to win the world junior crown twice, comfortably beat compatriot Nour Bahgat 9-4, 9-2, 9-1.

Annie Au continues to single-handedly spearhead local interest in the event after making it to the semi-finals for the first time. The 18-year-old 3/4 seed from Hong Kong defeated England's Victoria Lust 9-2, 9-0, 9-6.

Au's semi-final opponent also ousted an English player to reach the last four. No2 seed Camille Serme, the European Junior Champion from France, ended the giant-killing run of Sarah-Jane Perry, beating the surprise quarter-finalist from Warwickshire who was a 17/32 seed, 9-6, 9-0, 10-9.
