Third seed Jorgensen would have been confident going into the quarter-final clash in Odense, having won four of their previous five meetings.

However, after Jorgensen was given a walkover in the previous round due to an injury to Lin Dan, Kashyap took advantage of any rustiness to progress 21-19 21-15.

Kashyap's longest run of consecutive points was just four but it helped see off Jorgensen for the first time since the 2012 Hong Kong Open and set up a semi-final meeting with Chen Long

Having accounted for Viktor Axelsen and Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk to book a quarter-final meeting with Brice Leverdez, defending champion Chen was too strong for the Frenchman and racked up a fourth career win from as many attempts.

A 21-9 21-7 victory put Chen into the final four where he will face Kashyap - boasting a 5-1 career record over the Indian.

Tian Houwei is the other non-seeded competitor in the final four after the Chinese moved past Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand 21-12 21-19.

That hard-fought win, which saw Ponsana fight back from 20-16 down to just 20-19 behind before Tian saw out the win, ensures the 22-year-old will face South Korea's Son Wan-ho.

The seventh seed was made to work hard by India's Kidambi Srikanth before recording a 23-21 21-17 success to set up a third career meeting with Tian.

In the women's section of the competition, reigning champion Wang Yihan remains on course to defend her title after moving past Chinese compatriot Liu Xin 21-12 21-17.

The third seed will meet second seed Wang Shixian after the world number two edged past Saina Nehwal of India 22-20 21-15 in 45 minutes.

Whoever progresses from that semi-final will meet either top seed Li Xuerui or Sung Ji-hyun.

Li came from a game down to see off American Zhang Beiwen 15-21 21-15 21-12 while Sung was too strong for Pusarla Venkata Sindhu - having come through a stern test to progress 25-23 22-20.
