Emms and Robertson have looked in fine form all week

Nathan Robertson and Gail Emms looked in decent form as they won their mixed doubles quarter-final in the All England Championships in Birmingham.

The 2004 Olympic silver medal winners and 2006 world champions eased past their compatriots the match 21-14 21-16 in little over half-an-hour's play.

They will now face Chinese fifth seeds He Hanbin and Yu Yang in the semis.

Anthony Clark and Donna Kellogg failed to join them as they lost 21-18 14-21 17-21 to Xie Zhongbo and Zhang Yawen.

The result set up an all-Chinese semi-final as Xie and Zhang progressed to face top seeds Zheng Bo and Gao Ling.
