Sindhu Enters Hong Kong Super Series Semi-final

The World No. 10 next meets the 25th ranked Kazumasa Sakai, who advanced to the second round courtesy of a walkover given by the top seeded Viktor Axelsen.

Ace shuttler PV Sindhu, the only Indian in the Hong Open Super Series, defeated Japan's Akane Yamaguchi 21-12, 21-19 in the quarter-final of the women's singles event in Kowloon on Friday. It was Sindhu's third win over the Japanese in as many meetings and she took just 39 minutes to end her opponent's challenge.

Right from the start, Sindhu looked lethal and played aggressively to outplay her opponent in straight games.

Sindhu will now face former World Champion Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand in the semi-finals on Saturday. Akane Yamaguchi of Japan was drawn against Pusarla Sindhu of India, and Tai Tzu Ying of Taiwan faced Chen Yufei of China in the other quarter-finals.

In the men's singles, Prannoy moved into the second round after a 19-21, 21-17, 21-15 win in an hour and one minute over Hong Kong's Hu Yun.

However, Parupalli Kashyap squandered an opening game advantage to go down narrowly 21-15, 9-21, 20-22 to Korean Lee Dong Keun, while Sourabh Verma failed to put up a fight against Indonesia's Tommy Sugiarto, losing 15-21, 8-21 to bow out of the competition.
