S. Kisona and Goh Jin Wei put on strong performances to comfortably check into the Spanish International quarter-finals on Friday.

Kisona, the highest ranked women’s singles player in the national team at 61, needed only 32 minutes to brush aside Spaniard qualifier Lucia Rodriguez for the 21-7, 21-14 victory.

She will go on to play another Spaniard in Beatriz Corrales in the last eight.

Eoon Qi Xuan and Goh Jin Wei joined Kisona in the last eight, after they also advanced with relative ease.

Eoon was leading 11-2 against Marie Batomene when the Frenchwoman retired, while Goh shrugged off England’s Abigail Holden 21-10, 21-13.

The women’s singles shuttlers will play their matches on the same day after several hours break.

In the men’s singles, Malaysia’s challenge came to an end after Misbun Ramdan lost 13-21, 10-21 to Spanish veteran Pablo Abian.

Lim Chong King was sent packing in the first round having lost to Czech Republic’s Jan Louda on Thursday.

The national contingent aimed to return from this Euro trip with titles, having performed well at other lower tier events in the continent such as the Polish and Austrian Open.

At the Austrian Open earlier this month, the national team returned home with two titles in the mixed and men’s doubles.
