World No. 10 Sindhu took a little less than half an hour to dispose off Chinese Taipei's Hung Shih Han 21-19 21-15 in a women's singles match.

The second-seeded Indian had beaten Han in a trilling contest during the 2011 Vietnam Grand Prix Open. Sindhu will next take on Indonesia's Lindaweni Fanetri tomorrow.

H S Prannoy and B Sai Praneeth also entered the last-16 with contrasting victories at the Tap Seac Multisport Pavilion.

Third seed Prannoy, who had won the Indonesian Masters in September this year, thrashed Indonesia's Andre Marteen 21-18 21-16 in a men's singles match, while eighth seed Praneeth got the better off Singapore's Ronald Susilo 21-15 21-18 in a 30-minute match.

Prannoy will take on Chinese Taipei's Lin Yu Hsien, while Praneeth face Indonesia's Sony Dwi Kuncoro tomorrow.

However, it was curtains for P C Thulasi as the Indian women shuttler suffered a 12-21 17-21 loss to Hsu Ya Ching of Chinese Taipei in a 34-minute contest.
