Raneem El Weleily was able to give Egypt the perfect start, with a straight games win over Low Wee Wern in 21 minutes (11-5, 11-4, 11-4).

However, world number one Nicol David squared the ledger with a 3-1 win (11-9, 11-3, 8-11, 11-4) over Omneya Abdel Kawy. But it was Delia Arnold who had the final word as she crashed Egypt's hopes when she defeated Engy Kheirallah 3-2 (11-9, 3-11, 11-6, 9-11, 11-8).

Malaysia will now play Australia in the semis, after the second seed edged to a 2-1 win over USA.

The following are the quarter-final results:

New Zealand 2-1 France
England 3-0 Ireland
