India’s mixed pair of Tanisha Crasto and Ishaan Bhatnagar defeated Svetlana Zilberman and Misha Zilberman to enter the pre-quarterfinals of the Taipei Open Super 300 tournament in Taipei on Tuesday. The world number 47 pair, who won the Syed Modi International Super 300 earlier this year, made it easy to win 21-15, 21-8 against their 95th-ranked Israeli rivals in a match that lasted just 26 minutes. London Olympics bronze medalist Saina Nehwal, seeded fourth in women’s singles, withdrew from the event while her husband Parupalli Kashyap will open his campaign against local challenger Chi Yu Zhen.

Two other Indians – S Shankar Muthuswamy Subramaniam and Keura Mopati – lost in their respective qualifying rounds.

Subramaniam extended the lead to Chinese Taipei’s Zhuo-Fu Liao before losing 17-21 23-21 17-21 in a contest that lasted more than an hour.

Keura, on the other hand, lost 13-21, 14-21 to Koman Ayu Kahya Davy of Indonesia in a one-sided match.
