They will face China's Yan An and Zhu Yuling in the last eight on Thursday.

In the men's team event, the trio of Gao, Yang Zi and Pang Xue Jie beat Hong Kong 3-2 to finish fifth out of 20 teams.

Yee Herng Hwee was knocked out of the women's singles after losing in straight games (3-11, 6-11, 2-11, 10-12) to Malaysia's Ting Hie Phin.
