Olympic silver medallist P V Sindhu progressed to the women's singles semi-finals after knocking out Malaysia's Soniia Cheah in straight games at Thailand Open World Tour Super 500 tournament here yesterday.

The second seeded Indian continued her consistent performance with a 21-17, 21-13 win over World No. 35 Soniia in a 36-minute clash. The World No. 3 Indian will next face Indonesia's Gregoria Mariska Tunjung.

The drift in the hall created troubles for both the shuttlers who struggled with the length of their strokes. Sindhu was erratic initially and the result was Soniia led 11-7 at the first interval.

After the break, Sindhu slowly started dominating the proceedings and reeled off five points to lead 13-12. The Indian started putting pressure on the Malaysian with her attacking game and grabbed four game points when Soniia hit long. The Malaysian saved one game point before Sindhu sealed the first game with a smash.
