In the men’s doubles, Sam and Joshua Magee booked their semi-final spot beating Job Castillo and Antonio Ocegueda of Mexico, and they will now face Max Schwenger and Josche Zurwonne of Germany.

Sam Magee was scheduled to go back on court with his sister, Chloe, in the mixed doubles but the Irish pair received a walkover to the semi-final where they will play Alex Yuwan Tjong and Lohaynny Vicente of Brazil.
