In general, the Dane was happy about his performance on court: 

- Shi Yuqi was better in the first set, I started better in the second one, and played some of the best badminton I have shown this week. In total, I am happy about how I played, Gemke said after the match. 

Next step: Germany

For the Danish Men’s Singles player, it has been a good week in Paris. He won against Hans-Kristian Solberg Vittinghus and reached the semi-finals. Next week, Gemke is participating in the SarLorLux Open in Germany.
