Sindhu, Prannoy reach Hong Kong Open 2nd round
cancel

Hong Kong: PV Sindhu on Wednesday reached the second round of the Hong Kong Open with a 21-15, 21-16 win over Korea's Kim Ga Eun in the first round. In the men's singles, HS Prannoy also went through to the second round where he will face Indonesian world number 6 Jonathan Christie.

In a match that lasted 36 minutes, Sindhu was dominant. She led for much of the game and will next face Thailand's Busanan Ongbamrungphan on Wednesday. She thus keeps the Indian challenge alive in women's singles after Saina Nehwal's elimination at the hands of China's Cai Yan Yan earlier in the day. This is the former world no.1's fifth first round exit in the last six tournaments.

HS Prannoy beat China's Huan Yu Xiang 21-17, 21-17 to advance to the second round. He has faced Christie three times and has a 2-1 head to head record over him. He is the second Indian in the second round of men's singles alongwith Kidambi Srikanth, who got a walkover after world no.1 Kento Momota withdrew from the tournament.

Ashwini Ponnappa and N Sikki Reddy lost their first round match against Denmark's Maiken Fruergaard and Sara Thygesen.
