'Badminton's Beckham' Lin Dan secured his place in the last eight of the Australian Open with a comfortable 2-0 (21-14, 21-19) win over Indonesia's Jonatan Christie on Thursday. The Chinese ace, who made a shock opening round exit from the Indonesian Open last week, looks to have recovered some form after also registering a facile win over Korean Lee Dong Keun (21-14, 21-12) on Wednesday.Gabrielle Adcock and Chris Adcock of England compete during their R16 match against Choi Solgyu and Chae Yoo Jung of Korea during the Australian Badminton Open at Sydney Olympic Park on June 22, 2017 in Sydney, Australia.

Also still in the mix is defending champion Hans-Kristian Vittinghus of Denmark who ousted NG Ka Long Angus (21-9, 21-13).
Indian shuttlers B Sai Praneeth and Kidambi Srikanth progressed to the quarter-finals of the Australia Open Super Series on Thursday thanks to victories over Huang Yruxiang of China (21-15, 18-21, 21-13) and Son Wan-Ho (15-21, 21-13, 21-13) respectively.
Impressively, it was the second time in a week that Srikanth had beaten World No. 1 Wan-Ho after dispatching the Korean in the semi-finals of the Indonesia Open on his way to claiming that Super Series Premier title.
In the mixed doubles, meanwhile, England's Chris and Gabrielle Adcock stayed on course for another deep tournament run with (21-14, 17-21, 21-18) triumph over Choi Solgyu and Chae Yoo Sung of South Korea.
The $750,000 World Superseries event continues until Sunday before the tour moves to Taiwan for the Chinese Taipei Open next week.
