SCOTTISH OPEN DAY THREE: Adam Hall only Scot left standing

ADAM Hall is the only Scot left standing at the Scottish Open Grand Prix after him and his doubles partner, Peter Mills of England, made the quarter finals.

The British pair beat Australian and Danish opponents in Oliver Leydon-Davis and Lasse Moelhede 21-18 21-17 to reach the last eight.

Hall posted on Twitter on Friday evening saying: “So happy to be in the semis of the Scottish Open GP. Been coming to watch since I was 6 years old and to be playing on the Saturday is a dream come true!”

In the mixed doubles, though, Hall failed to make it into the next round with fellow Scot Eleanor O’Donnell. The pair were beaten 23-21 21-11 by French pair Emilie Lefel and Gaetan Mittelheiser.

Unlike Hall, O’Donnell failed to avenge her mixed doubles defeat in the double – with her and her partner Julie MacPherson crashing out 21-8 21-10 to the fourth seeds from Denmark.

Kieran Merrilees was the highest profile casualty of the day in the men’s singles – losing out after an hour long duel with Dutchman Mark Caljouw.

The 13th seed, who said playing in the slow Emirates Arena doesn’t suit his style, was beaten 25-23 18-21 21-16.

The final Scottish involvement of the day seen Rebekka Findlay and Caitlin Findlay beaten convincingly by American pair Mei Xing Teoh and Amelia Alicia Anscelly 21-14 21-5.
