Kolkata, Dec 13 — The top seeded stars, including defending champion Aditi Ashok and Gurbani Singh, took their expected places in the quarter-finals of the Usha All India Ladies Matchplay Championships here Thursday.

Aditi triumphed with a comfortable margin of 5 and 3 over fellow Bangalorean Anisha Padukone, while her arch rival Gurbani Singh also moved into the next round with a tough match against yet another Bangalorean Ankita Kedalya before winning 3 and 1. Gurbani had a fight on hands, but never really put pressure on herself.

In case both Aditi and Gurbani win their quarter-final matches, they will clash in the semi-finals, which will decide the Order of Merit winner also.

A minor upset of sorts came when Seher Atwal beat Amandeep Drall 3 and 2, while Ridhima Dilawari defeated Nikita Arjun 3 and 2. Millie Saroha by far had the toughest time beating underdog Shruti Naik 2-up on the 18th and Tvesa Malik stretched Raksha Phadke to the 18th before the latter won 1-up.

Low-key Jaipreet Ghuman slotted a bunch of birdies and beat Astha Madan 3 and 2 and Gursimar Badwal rallied from a three-hole deficit after seven to win 3 and 2 on the 16th.
