Sindhu produced a dominant performance to outclass Japan’s Aya Ohori 21-15, 21-10 and go through to the next round. The two-time Olympic medalist displayed powerful smashes and excellent net play to oust the world no. 26. With yet another win she took her head-to-head count against the Japanese to a whopping 12-0
The world no.7 Indian will next face familiar foe in Thailand’s Busanan Ongbamrungphan, whom she had defeated in the Swiss Open final last month. Sindhu is in impressive form having claimed two Super 300 titles this season at Syed Modi international and Swiss Open. She enjoys a 16-1 lead in 17 meetings against the world no. 11 Thai.
Srikanth cruised to a 21-18, 21-6 victory over Misha Zilberman of Israel within 33 minutes. The 2021 World Championship silver medalist overcame a slow start to hand Zilberman a crushing defeat in the men’s singles round of 16 encounter. It was the fifth seed’s second straight win over the world no.50 in as many meetings.
