Robert Blair and Imogen Bankier are through to the mixed doubles final at the Yonex German Open in Mulheim.

The Anglo-Scottish pair stormed past semi-final opponents and Chinese fourth seeds Tao Jiaming and Zhang Yawen 21-17 21-19.

But hopes of meeting Robin Middleton and Mariana Agathangelou in the final were dashed when the England pair fell 21-12 21-16 to Yohan Hadikusumo Wiramata and Ying Suet Tse of Indonesia.

Victory in the final tomorrow would give Blair and Bankier a real boost going into next week's Yonex All England 100th Championships at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham.
