Indian shuttler Ajay Jayaram progressed to the men's singles quarterfinals with a straight-game win over Russia's Vladimir Malkov at the USD 150,000 Barcelona Spain Masters World Tour Super 300 tournament here today.
A former world no 13, Jayaram hardly broke any sweat as he downed Malkov 21-11 21-10 in a lop-sided contest here.
The 30-year-old Indian, who had finished runners-up at Vietnam Open Super 100 tournament earlier this month, will next face either Spain's Luis Enrique Penalver or Denmark's Rasmus Gemke, seeded second.
Jayaram is a two-time winner of Dutch Open. He also reached the finals of 2015 Korea Open Super Series. He made a comeback in 2018 after recovering from a hamstring injury that he suffered last year.
