New Delhi: Indian shuttler Arvind Bhat entered the quarter-finals of the Dutch Open Badminton Championship beating Sweden's Gabriel Ulldahl in straight games in a third round encounter here on Thursday.
The 15th seeded Indian defeated Ulladahl 21-14 21-18 in just 31 minutes to set-up a last eight clash with Nan Wei of Hong Kong. Wei beat Henri Huskainen of Sweden 21-18 21-17 in another third round clash.
It was a taxing day for Bhat as he had to play two matches on the day. The first match however was a close encounter where he notched up a come-from-behind victory over Hsu Jui Ting of Chinese Taipei to move into the third round of the men's singles competition in Dutch Open in Almere, The Netherlands.
