Agency Jakarta: Top Indian shuttler P V Sindhu fought hard to progress to the women’s singles quarterfinals but it was curtains for Kidambi Srikanth in the men’s singles event of the Indonesia Open, here on Thursday. Sindhu, seeded fifth, had to dig deep into her reservoir of experience as she slugged it out for 62 minutes to beat unseeded Mia Blichfeldt of Denmark 21-14 17-21 21-11 in a second-round encounter. But later in the day, eight seed Srikanth was stunned by NG Ka Long Angus of Hong Kong 17-21 19-21 in a 39-minute second round contest. Sindhu recorded her third win over the world no. 13 Dane this year. The Indian had earlier defeated Blichfeldt in straight games in the Indian Open and the Singapore Open. Sindhu will next face the winner of the match between Malaysia’s Soniia Cheh and-third seeded Japanese Nozomi Okuhara in the last-eight round of the BWF World Tour Super 1000 tournament.
