PV Sindhu and HS Prannoy, the shuttling icons from India who are spearheading the country’s contingent at the ongoing Malaysia Open Super 750 event have made it to the quarterfinals after spectacular wins in the second round at the Axiata Arena on Thursday.
Sindhu came from behind to outperform Thailand’s Phittayaporn Chaiwan, as the world no 7 Indian picked up a 19-21 21-9 21-14 win in 57 minutes to secure her entry into the last eights. The two time Olympic medallist will now take on her Taiwanese rival Tai Tzu Ying up next.
Prannoy, on the other hand, had a much easier challenge in his men’s singles outing against Chou Tien Chen, and defeated the fourth seeded shuttler from Taiwan with a comfortable 21-15 21-7 victory. He will now take on seventh seeded Jontan Christie from Indonesia in the quarterfinals.
