Indian Grandmaster Dronavalli Harika came out strongly in the rapid tiebreaker to enter the semi-finals of the World Women Chess Championship today. Harika was back to her best in the rapid games as she won the first game displaying some fantastic technique and then drew the second game to set up a semi-final clash against Tan Zhongyi of China. 
Harika's was the only match that stretched to the tiebreak stage after she squandered a full point lead against the Georgian. It may be recalled that Harika had won the first match against Bangladeshi Shamima Akter Liza in tiebreak, then defeated Dinara Saduakassova of Kazakhstan in tiebreak before getting past Sopiko Guramishvili of Georgia also in the tiebreak.
Harika now has to tackle ninth seed Tan Zhongyi of China before she can become the first Indian ever to make it to the finals of a knockout women's World Championship.
