in five games at the Alexandria Sporting Club in Alexandria.

Mylotte, the 32-year-old from Galway who this month celebrated a career-high world No 46 ranking, twice led in the match against qualifier Pakay. But the novice teenager kept fighting back before finally celebrating her historic 4-9, 9-5, 0-9, 9-3, 9-7 win - and a place in the quarter-finals.

The recently-crowned Pakistan women's national champion will now face local star Engy Kheirallah, the Alexandria-based No2 seed who faced a stern test against compatriot Nour Bahgat - playing in her first Tour event since helping Egypt to victory in the Women's World Junior Team Championship in Hong Kong - before winning 9-4, 8-10, 9-1, 9-0.

Kheirallah, winner of the title in 2005, is seeded to reach Wednesday's final, where she is expected to face top seed Rachael Grinham. The Cairo-based Australian cruised to victory in her first round match, beating Egyptian qualifier Amnah El Trabolsy 9-0, 9-4, 9-1.

Quarter-final line-up:

[1] Rachael Grinham (AUS) v [5] Tricia Chuah (MAS)

[4] Raneem El Weleily (EGY) v [6] Tenille Swartz (RSA)

[3] Isabelle Stoehr (FRA) v [7] Orla Noom (NED)
