Talented Indian shuttler Tanisha Crasto registered straight-game wins to enter the quarterfinals of women’s and mixed doubles competition at the Taipei Open Super 300 tournament on Thursday.

Former Commonwealth Games gold medallist Parupalli Kashyap also entered the last eight round but Mithun Manjunath and Kiran George missed out after suffering narrow defeats in the men’s singles second round.

Tanisha and Ishaan Bhatnagar, seeded sixth, beat Chinese Taipei’s Cheng Kai Wen and Wang Yu Qiao 21-14 21-17 to enter the mixed doubles quarterfinals.

The 19-year-old Dubai-born Tanisha, who had represented Bahrain in her junior days, then combined with Shruti Mishra to get the better of local hope Jia Yin Lin and Lin Yu-Hao 21-14 21-8 in a women’s doubles second-round tie that lasted 22 minutes.
