P V Sindhu cruises into Indonesia Open quarterfinals

  • Ace Indian shuttler P.V. Sindhu today registered a comfortable straight-game win over Germany’s Yvonne Li to cruise into the women’s singles quarterfinals of the Indonesia Open Super-1000 event in Bali.
  • The reigning world champion, seeded third, hardly broke a sweat to win the second-round clash 21-12, 21-18 against the world No. 26 in 37 minutes.
  • Up against Li for the first time, World No. 7 Sindhu looked completely in control from the beginning. The two-time Olympic medallist took the first game with ease and continued to dominate in the geme winning seven consecutive points at one stage.
  • Li made a good recovery in the second game, but Sindhu persisted and did not let the German gain an advantage over her.
  • Sindhu will now take on the winner of the second-round clash between Spaniard Beatriz Corrales and South Korea’s Sim Yujin in the quarterfinals.
