Sindhu defeated Aya Ohori of Japan 21-14, 21-17 in 39 minutes to enter the third round.

Sindhu avenged her French Open Superseries defeat against Yamaguchi last month and it was her 4th victory over the Japanese in total six outings. After a close first game, Sindhu was a runaway victor in the second toying with her opponent while hitting deceptive lobs and steep smashes.

Thailand's Ratchanok Intanon defeated Michelle Li of Canada on Friday to move on to the semi-finals of the US$400,000 BWF Hong Kong Open badminton tournament.

Earlier in the day, ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal advanced to the second round of the tournament after registering a 21-19, 23-21 win over Mette Poulsen of Denmark in a 46-minute first round clash. In their last meeting, at 2016 Malaysia Open, the Thai shuttler beat Sindhu in straight games 21-7, 21-8.

The former World No. 1 has a tough challenge up next as she faces the eighth seeded Chen Yufei for a place in the quarter-finals.

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.
