Women's World Championship, Round 4 tie-breaks

It was a heartbreaking day for Chinese player Zhao Xue and French player Marie Sebag. They were both so close to qualifying for the semi-finals yesterday but ended up being eliminated today in the tie-breaks. Both lost their first game and had to go all out in the second.

Harika Donavalli managed to draw the second game to win the match 1.5-0.5 while Sebag even lost the second game to go 0-2 against Antoaneta Stefanova. So Harika  and Antoaneta are through to the final.

Huang Qian drew both games with Ju WenJun so they go into the ten minute (plus 10 seconds) tie-breaker. Ju Wenjun won 1.5-0.5 to eliminate Huang Qian.

Ju Wenjun, Harika Donavalli and Antoaneta Stefanova joins Anna Ushenina in the semi-finals.
