to earn a surprise place in the quarter-finals of the WISPA World Tour Silver event in Poughkeepsie in the US state of New York.

The 24-year-old from Odense recovered from a game down to take a 2/1 lead. But Wee fought back to level the match, then saved a match-ball at 8-4 in the decider to close the gap to just a single point.

Hansen held out, however, and clinched the match 6-9, 9-4, 9-7, 5-9, 9-7.

The Dane will now face England's Jenny Duncalf, the third seed from Yorkshire who beat New Zealand's Louise Crome 2-9, 9-2, 9-2, 9-5.

Event favourite Rachael Grinham was given a scare when fellow Australian Amelia Pittock, a qualifier, took the second game to level the score in their first round match. The three-time British Open champion upped the pace, however, and prevented Pittock from scoring a further point, winning 9-4, 7-9, 9-0, 9-0!

Quarter-final line-up:

[1] Rachael Grinham (AUS) v [5] Rebecca Chiu (HKG)

[3] Jenny Duncalf (ENG) v Line Hansen (DEN)

[4] Shelley Kitchen (NZL) v [6] Kasey Brown (AUS)

[2] Natalie Grainger (USA) v [8] Latasha Khan (USA)
