Ng Tze Yong continued to make strides at the ongoing Singapore Open as he claimed the scalp of another Hong Kong shuttler to check into the quarter-finals on Thursday.

Ng, who beat Angus Ng Ka Long in the first round on Wednesday, overcame Lee Cheuk Yiu 21-15, 21-13 in 33 minutes.

Malaysia’s sole men’s singles representative would have his work cut out for him when he takes on Indonesia’s Anthony Ginting in the quarter-finals on Friday.

It was a good day for the mixed doubles contingent too as three pairs booked their quarter-final berths at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Hoo Pang Ron-Toh Ee Wei did well to outmaneuver Danish eighth seeds Mathias Christiansen-Alexandra Boje 21-11, 21-19 in 38 minutes, to set up a meeting against China’s Guo Xin Wa-Zhang Shu Xian.

Goh Soon Huat-Shevon Lai needed three games to beat Indonesians Rinov Rivaldy-Pitha Haningtyas Mentari 10-21, 21-18, 21-10, and next face Hong Kong’s fourth seeds Tang Chun Man-Tse Ying Suet.

Of the three pairs, Chen Tang Jie-Valeree Siow were the most impressive in their 21-13, 21-7 win over Reginald Lee-Ng Tsz Yau.

Chen-Siow are up against top seeds Dechapol Puavaranukroh-Sapsiree Taerratanachai next.

“Our performance was solid. We studied their game well and are happy to come away with the big win,” they said.

While the mixed doubles fared well, it was the opposite for the men’s doubles who all crashed out.

They included Goh V Shem-Low Juan Shen, Man Wei Chong-Kai Wun Tee, Ong Yew Sin-Teo Ee Yi, Goh Sze Fei-Nur Izzuddin and Junaidi Arif-Muhammad Haikal.

While Man-Kai could be forgiven for being upstaged by last week’s Malaysia Masters finalists Mohammad Ahsan-Hendra Setiawan in straight games, Ong-Teo and Goh-Izzuddin unexpectedly lost to opponents they were expected to beat.

Ong-Teo were beaten 18-21, 19-21 by Lu Ching Yao-Yang Po Han, while Indian pair M. R. Arjun-Dhruv Kapila defeated Goh-Izzuddin 18-21, 24-22, 21-18.

Chan Peng Soon-Cheah Yee See, meanwhile, lost to Wang Yi Lyu-Huang Dong Ping in the mixed doubles.
