KIRSTY GILMOUR'S hot run of form has swept her into two quarter-finals at the London Grand Prix Gold at the Copper Box Arena.
The Scotland No. 1 is through to the last eight of the women's singles after the fifth seed scored a 21-9 21-14 win over Maria Febe Kusumastuti of Indonesia.
“I knew this match was going to be a tough one,” said the 20-year-old from Bothwell. “But I managed to get my head in the right place and do the job quite efficiently.
“I’m really really happy with the way I’m playing right now. Hopefully I can carry it on tonight and hopefully get another two wins.”
The singles win earned her a match tonight against Japanese qualifier Sayaka Sato, who knocked out England No. 1 Sarah Walker yesterday afternoon to follow up her 22-20 21-19 first-round win over Thai second seed Portntip Buranaprasertsuk.
Earlier 20-year-old Gilmour and her Edinburgh partner Jillie Cooper had reached the quarter-finals of the women's doubles by knocking out seconds seeds Johanna Golizewski and Birgit Michels of Germany 22-20 21-11. Tonight they face Denmark's Line Damkjaer Kruse and Marie Roepke.
Paul Van Rietvelde's hopes of making it three quarter-finals for Scotland were dashed when he and England's Marcus Ellis went down 21-18 21-13 to Germany's Peter Kaesbauer and Josche Zurwonne.
