Sindhu advances to quarterfinal in Jakarta

akarta: shuttler PV Sindhu advanced to the Indonesia Masters badminton tournament quarterfinals after clinching a straight-game triumph over local favourite Gregoria Mariska Tunjung here Thursday.

Sindhu, seeded second, defeated Tunjung 23-21, 21-7 in 37 minutes to make the last eight stage of her season-opener.

The Indian faced some competition in the opening game but completely dominated the second to maintain her unbeaten record against Tunjung intact. Her cross-court smashes and delectable net play at times left her opponent dumb-founded.
