PV Sindhu, Saina Nehwal march into French Open quarterfinals

By Pti

Paris, Oct. 24: It was a good day for the Indian shuttlers as World Champion PV Sindhu and London Olympics bronze medallist Saina Nehwal stormed into the women's singles quarter-finals of the USD 750,000 French Open.

Sindhu also maintained her winning run in the tournament as she ousted Singapore’s Jia Min Yeo on Thursday. Sindhu won in straight games as she defeated the Sinpapore shuttler 21-10, 21-12.

Sindhu will next face the winner of the match between Tai Tzu Ying and Kim Ga Eun.

Meanwhile, Saina marched into the last-eight with a straight game win over Denmark's Line Højmark Kjaersfeldt here on Thursday (Oct. 24).

The eighth seeded Indian, who had won the Indonesia Masters early in the year before going through a rough patch, dispatched Line 21-10, 21-11 in 27 minutes.

The two-time Commonwealth Games champion, who had lost in the first round in three successive events, will next take on Korea's An Se Young, who had last week knocked out India's P V Sindhu in the opening round of Denmark Open.

Saina had defeated Hong Kong's Cheung Ngan Yi 23-21 21-17 in the opening round on Wednesday night.
