Mariya Mitsova from Bulgaria is seeded second in Yonex Estonian International, and she is also ready to play in the quarter-finals after beating Ayla Huser from Switzerland in the second round 21-16 21-9.

- My attack is pretty well. The hall is perfect - not too big and not too small. I like to play fast and attacking, so it is working good for me here, Mitsova tells Badminton Europe after her second-round win.

- I honestly expected to go to the quarter-finals, because I am seeded second in this tournament, but I feel the pressure. It is not often, I am seeded second, and I am still working on climbing up the world ranking. I will be seeded in more tournaments, so I have to handle it, Mitsova says.
