Scots into Sweden quarter-finals

Top seeds Martin Campbell and Patrick MacHugh booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Swedish Open in the men’s doubles after a straight games victory in the second round.

The Scots proved too strong for Danish pair Kristoffer Knudsen and Steve Olesen, coming away with a 21-10 21-15 success.

That sets up a quarter-final clash with another pair from Denmark, Jeppe Bruun and Tobias Holst.

There was more success against Danish opposition for the Scots in the women’s doubles as Julie MacPherson and Eleanor O’Donnell beat Lisa Kremer and Amalie Vestmar 21-17 21-13.

That earned them a spot in the quarter-finals, and the second seeds will face Swedish duo Moa and Tilda Sjoo, who beat Iza and Lia Salehar.

Earlier in the day there was double frustration for Jack MacGregor, who was knocked out of both the men’s double and the mixed doubles.

He and Toni Woods went down to Oliver Leydon-Davis and Gabriella Boje in the morning in the mixed doubles 21-12 21-16.

And he was back in action in the afternoon in the men’s doubles alongside Ciar Pringle, going down in three games.

Up against Danish pair Rasmus Kaeseler and Andreas Sondergaard, MacGregor and Pringle took the first game before eventually going down 19-21 21-19 21-6.
