Goh Jin Wei continued to make progressive strides in her comeback trail after the former two-time world junior champion checked into the Taipei Open quarter-finals with a straight-game victory on Thursday.

Goh only needed less than 30 minutes to take down Indonesia’s Komang Ayu Cahya Dewi 21-11, 21-17 to secure a last eight berth.

The 22-year-old should fancy her chances to make the semis when she takes on Japan’s seventh seed Saena Kawakami in the women's singles on Friday.

Since returning to action in April after a year on the sidelines due to a stomach ailment, Goh's Taipei Open showing was her third quarter-final appearance.

She also upset world number 16 Zhang Beiwen at the Malaysia Masters first round, and took a game off world number one Tai Tzu-ying in the following match.

It was a good day for independent Malaysian shuttlers as Soong Joo Ven also made it to Friday’s action after he took down sixth seed Koki Watanabe 21-6, 25-23.

Soong, who also dabbles in the mixed doubles with Goh Liu Ying, next faces third seed P. Kashyap in the men's singles.

The Malaysians continued their upset of seeded players through Hoo Pang Ron-Toh Ee Wei, who needed 52 minutes to oust third seeded home pair Lee Jhe-huei-Hsu Ya Ching 21-23, 23-21, 21-14.

The scratch mixed doubles pairing next take on sixth seeds Ishaan Bhatnagar-Tanisha Crasto in the quarter-finals.

Syed Modi International champions Man Wei Chong-Kai Wun Tee also made it through with a 21-12, 21-19 success in the men’s doubles, booking a meeting with home pair Liao Min Chun-Chun Hsien Yang.

Independent pair Boon Xin Yuan-Wong Tien Ci stunned third seeds Lu Ching Yao-Yang Po Han 21-16, 21-11 and next battle Hong Kong’s Reginald Lee-Law Cheuk Him for a place in the semis.

Goh V Shem-Lim Kim Wah, who were reunited after eight years for this tournament, narrowly lost 18-21, 21-17, 18-21 to Lee Chia-Han-Lin Yong-sheng.

Leong Jun Hao was no match for second seed Wang Tzu-Wei in the men’s singles, as he went down 10-21, 15-21.
