On Day 4 of the Yonex French Open 2013, three World champions – including the usually tough Yu Yang and Wang Xiaoli of China – fell out of the quarter-finals stage on a day of massive upsets.

The Women’s Doubles No. 1 unit of Yu and Wang had not lost a single match to a non-Chinese pair since January 2012. However, Indonesian pair of Greysia Polii/Nitya Krishinda Maheswari has finally upset them with 21-17, 14-21 and 23-21.

Women’s Singles World champion and Thai player, Ratchanok Intanon – also figured among the day’s casualties against seventh seed Wang Shixian (China) and suffered a loss with 21-10, 22-20.

Mixed Doubles saw the departure of reigning World champions and No. 3 seeds, Tontowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir of Indonesia in their clash with Chris Adcock/Gabrielle White (England), committing a series of errors. The newly-married winners achieved the victory with 22-20, 21-17.

No. 2 Women’s Doubles seeds and Danish players Christinna Pedersen/Kamilla Rytter Juhl joined Yu/Wang as they failed to advance, crashing out 21-19 25-23 to Korean duo, Jang Ye Na and Kim So Young.

Men’s Doubles also get shocked with the recent Denmark Open champions Lee Yong Dae and Yoo Yeon Seong (Korea, 8) falling against Malaysia’s low-profile combination of Hoon Thien How/Tan Wee Kiong with 21-13, 21-10 in just 33 minutes.
