Saina Nehwal and Aditi Mutatkar reached the women's quarterfinals of Asian Badminton Championship on Thursday.
However, it was all over for India in the men's singles after lone survivor P Kashyap lost after a gallant fight in the pre-quarterfinals.
Top seeds Jwala Gutta and V Diju reached the mixed doubles quarterfinals after winning their second round match against Sheng Mu Lee and Yu Chin Chien of Chinese Taipei 24-22, 21-15. The world number 12 pair will next face Chinese duo of Zihan Qiu and Qing Tian on Friday.
Top seed Saina relied on long rallies to outclass Julia Pei Xian Wong of Malaysia 21-14, 21-16 and set up a clash with arch-rival seventh seed Mew Choo Wong of Malaysia in the quarterfinals.
Earlier, 13th seed Kashyap had bounced back from a game down and was going neck and neck in the third when a decision against him derailed his campaign and the Andra Pradesh player lost the battle 16-21, 21-18, 13-21 against Yun Hu.
