Fitz-Gerald will go into the final unbeaten

After her 9-2, 9-2, 9-6 win over fellow Australian, and world number 11, Rachael Grinham, Fitz-Gerald said: She made me work hard for the win. But I feel I got too far in front at the beginning, which would have made her nervous."

"It wasnt until the end in the third game that she came back at me. I got a bit uptight and just wanted to get the match over with. People are expecting me to win all the time and I feel I have to deliver. Im beginning to feel recognised and this puts even more pressure on me to win, but I have to learn to deal with it.

Grinham who will get a bronze medal said of her performance: I was trying my hardest, but she was just too strong. She powered me off the court. The bronze is more than I was expected to get, so Ive got to be happy with that.

The final will be held on 31 July.
