England are still in contention in four of the five events as the Commonwealth Championships in India reaches the individual quarter-finals.

Top seed Tin-Tin Ho came through her last 16 tie against an opponent from Singapore and next faces Archana Girish Kamath of India in the last eight. Denise Payet and Emily Bolton went out in the group stage, both with one win from three.

In the men’s singles, Tom Jarvis is the surviving Englishman after two victories over Indian opponents in the early knockout rounds, including world No 122 Amalraj Anthony in the last 16. He now face yet another host nation athlete, Sanil Shetty, in the quarter-finals.

Sam Walker, seeded third, was surprisingly beaten 4-0 by India’s Sushmit Sriram in the last 16. David McBeath went out on three-way countback in the group stage.

In the men’s doubles, Walker & Jarvis are through to the quarter-finals, as are McBeath and his partner from Singapore, Lucas Tan – the latter partnership winning their last-16 tie 14-12 in the decider.

They next face top seeds Sharath Achanta & Sathiyan Gnanasekaran of India, while Walker & Jarvis will be up against a Malaysian pair for a place in the semis.

Walker & Ho are through to the mixed doubles quarters, where they will face Indian pair Harmeet Desai & Ayhika Mukherjee.

The other English combinations – Jarvis & Payet and McBeath & Bolton – both went out to Nigerian opponents in the last 32.

In the women’s doubles, Ho & Payet went out 3-2 to a pair from Singapore in the last 16, while Emily Bolton & Eunice Zoe Lim of Singapore were defeated at the same stage by an Australian combination.
