Jonathan Power is on top form

Canadian world No 2 Jonathon Power was in devastating form to dismiss the challenge of Pakistanís Mansoor Zaman 9-0, 9-0, 9-2 in 24 minutes and stroll into a quarter-final clash on Monday with Englandís Lee Beachill.

Beachill, ranked 10 in the world and seeded eight, was too much to handle for Welshman David Evans and won 9-2, 9-4, 9-3 in 44 minutes. Beachill, from Pontefract, has never previously beaten Power.

Australiaís Paul Price claimed the scalp of Englandís Mark Chaloner in a marathon three-game match, which lasted 94 minutes. A 9-7, 9-4, 9-4 triumph earns the Melbourne player a tie with team mate Stewart Boswell.

Boswell, who now lives in Maidenhead, was always in control of his match against Pakistanís Shahid Zaman Khan and won 9-1, 9-6, 9-2 in 34 minutes.

Australian-born world No 2 Carol Owens, representing New Zealand for the first time, made light work of disposing of Northern Irelandís Madeline Perry 9-0, 9-0, 9-4.

Linda Charman cruised into the last eight and a mouth-watering clash with her England teammate Cassie Jackman after a 9-7, 9-1, 9-1 victory over Australiaís Natalie Grinham.

World No 14 Grinham matched her throughout the opening game, but the match will be better remembered for a couple of heated exchanges she had with a referee.

Jackman faced New Zealandís Shelley Kitchen on show court two and was never troubled on her way to a 9-2, 9-0, 9-6 win.

Tania Baileysís (ENG) match against Canadaís Melanie Jans was switched to the main show court and the world No 10 became the last name in the quarter-final draw after a convincing 9-1, 9-3, 9-3 victory.
