PV Sindhu entered the quarter-final of the Hong Kong Open Super Series in Kowloon on Thursday.
With a recorded 21-14, 21-17 win in just 39 minutes to continue her unbeaten record against the Japanese star, Sidhu crushed Japan’s Aya Ohori in straight games to qualify for the last eight of the tournament.
The 2014 Olympics silver medalist took the first game 21-14 to illustrate her dominance in the match. Ohori issued a late fightback in the second game by winning give points in a row. However, Sindhu’s experience and class helped her close the second game at 21-17.
Sindhu will now face the winner of the other second round match between Akane Yamaguchi or Sayaka Sato in the quarters.
