Singapore: PV Sindhu continued her winning streak and made it to the semi-finals of the Singapore Open badminton.
Saina Nehwal, Kidambi Srikanth and Sameer Verma, who were part of the competition from India, had to face defeat in the quarter-finals.
Fourth seed Sindhu beat Kee Yanyan of non-seeded China 21-13, 17-21, 21-14 in a 59-minute match.
To make Sindhu a place in the final, now the second seed will face the
challenge of Japan’s Nojomi Okuhara who beat Saina Nehwal of
India 21-8, 21-13 in 36 minutes in another quarterfinal.
Sindhu had won the World Tour Tournament of eight top players in the end of 2018 but in 2019 his quest for the title continues.
Sindhu reached the semi-finals of her home tournament India Open at the end of March, but she was out in the second round of the Malaysia Open last week.
This was the first career match with Yananan of the sixth player of the World Ranking.
Shortly after the sixth seed Saina, the return to the court was not pleasant and she got out in the last eight.
Saina was out of court at the India Open due to stomach disturbances.
He returned to the court through the Singapore Open but could not cross the Okhara.
After this defeat, the world number nine player Saina has recorded a 9-5 record against Okuhara’s third number.
