England's Chris Adcock and Andrew Ellis are in the quarter-finals of the French Open after a fine win over Indonesia's Hendra Setiawan and Markis Kido. Adcock (r) and Ellis are ranked 23 in the world

Adcock had not finished his mixed doubles tie with Imogen Bankier until after midnight in Paris but a few hours later outplayed the Olympic champions.

The pair hit four points in a row to take the first game and came from 17-14 down in the second to win 21-17 21-19.

They will now take on face Hirokatsu Hashimoto and Noriyasu Hirata of Japan.

In the second game, seventh seeds Kido and Setiawan looked to have a slight edge until Adcock and Ellis, ranked 23 in the world, recovered from three points behind down to secure a fine win.

Adcock had gone into the match with his tail up after rocketing up the new world mixed doubles rankings with Scottish partner Bankier.

However, his exploits caught up with him and Bankier as they lost 23-21 21-19 to Chinese pair and second seeds Xu Chen and Ma Jin.

Jersey-born Mariana Agathangelou and Heather Olver bowed out to Japan's third seed Mizuki Fujii and Reika Kakiiwa just hours after overcoming Canadian rivals Nicole Grether and Charmaine Reid.

In the men's singles, Commonwealth Games silver medallist Rajiv Ouseph went down in three close games against China's Wang Zhengming 21-16 19-21 21-17.
