Imogen Bankier and Chris Adcock's brilliant run at the Yonex All England Open Championships came to an end in the quarter-finals last week at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham
14th March 2012
But with GB rivals Nathan Robertson and Jenny Wallwork also going out at the same stage, Scotland's Bankier and English partner Adcock remain just ahead of the England pair in the Olympic qualifying race.
Now the GB rivals head for this week's Swiss Open in Basel with the luck of the draw against deserting Adcock and Bankier, who tomorrow will face fourth seeds, former world champions and Yonex All England runners-up Thomas Laybourn and Kamilla Juhl of Denmark while Robertson and Wallwork meet Bulgarian pair Stilian Makarski and Diana Dimova.
If both British pairs win their first round matches, they will meet in the second round.
