Malaysia Open: Kidambi Srikanth in quarters, PV Sindhu out
Srikanth, 26, is now the lone Indian survivor in the BWF World Tour Super 750 tournament
India's Kidambi Srikanth made it to the quarter-final, but an erratic PV Sindhu went down in straight games at the Malaysia Open here yesterday. Eighth seeded Srikanth, who had reached the finals of a BWF World Tour event after 17 months at the India Open last week, defeated Thailand's Khosit Phetpradab 21-11, 21-15 to set up a meeting with Olympic champion Chen Long of China.
Srikanth, 26, is now the lone Indian survivor in the BWF World Tour Super 750 tournament. Fifth seed Sindhu blew a 13-10 advantage in the opening game to go down rather meekly 18-21, 7-21 to World No. 10 Sung Ji Hyun for her third straight defeat to the Korean.
Mixed doubles pair of Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N Sikki Reddy lost 21-15, 17-21, 13-21 to local combination of Tan Kian Meng and Lai Pei Jing of Malaysia India to bow out.
