Ace Indian Shuttler P.V. Sindhu has registered a comfortable live win over Yvonne Lee of Germany and will advance to the women’s singles quarterfinals at the Indonesia Open Super 1000 on Thursday.
The reigning world champion, who came third here, struggled to win the second round 21-12 21-18 against 26th in 37 minutes in the $ 850,000 buy-in tournament.
When he first met Lee, Sindhu, world number 7, looked completely in control from the start.
Her superiority was such that the two-time Olympic medalist easily took the first game, winning seven points in a row in one stage.
Lee recovered well in the second game and the game was more even. But Sindhu persisted and did not allow the German to gain an advantage over her.
In the quarterfinals, Sindhu will face the winner of the second round of the bout between Spain’s Beatrice Corrales and South Korea’s Sim Eugene.
