Good evening and welcome to the Sportskeeda liveblog of the Austrian Open 2018. The reigning Commonwealth Games champion Parupalli Kashyap is the second seed at this International Challenge tournament.

Kashyap takes on the seventh seeded Victor Svendsen of Denmark for a place in the semi-finals. While the Indian is ranked 44th, the Dane is placed at 77th in the world rankings.

The Indian leads their head-to-head record 1-0, having beaten the Dane at home in the qualifying rounds of the Denmark Open last year.

Both of them are yet to drop a game so far at the Austrian Open, although the Indian had to work hard in his second round win over Jia Wei Tan. Kashyap narrowly edged the Malaysian in the second game before notching up a 21-15, 22-20 win.

This is Kashyap's second consecutive quarter-final this year, having made it to the last-eight at the India Open earlier this month. He would surely aim to continue that good form and keep his run going at this event.
