Toronto, Feb 18 (IANS): India's third seed Dipika Pallikal and No.7 Joshna Chinappa have entered the quarterfinals of the Women's Squash Association International 25 Granite Open event here.

Currently ranked 13, Pallikal, playing for the first time in this event, took time to settle down, even losing the first game.

But she steadied herself thereafter to make it a comfortable win thereafter to set up a clash with fifth seed Jenny Duncalf from England.

It was lot more comfortable for Chinnappa, the 21-ranked player who however faces a stiff test in the last eight as she faces the second seeded Australian Rachael Grinham.
