Basel: PV Sindhu, Parupalli Kashyap and Anand Pawar got off to winning starts in their respective opening round singles matches at the USD 125,000 Swiss Grand Prix Gold tournament. The trio of Sindhu, Kashyap and Pawar won in straight games.
But it was curtains for K Srikanth in the men's singles, who lost to Sweden's Henri Hurskainen 21-19 18-21 17-21. Saina Nehwal who finished runners-up in 2011 and 2012 was yet to take the court in an attempt to better her performance.
