Bengaluru, Nov 22 (UNI) Continuing with his power packed performance,

here today.

Prajnesh who had earlier accounted for sixth seed Evan King won

6-2, 6-7 (1), 6-1 in a fast paced game.

Also advancing to the last eight stage was Tsung-Hua Yang of

Teipei, who was a 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 winner over qualifier Borna Gojo who
