Olympic silver medallist PV Sindhu cruised into the second round of Denmark Open after registering an easy win over China's He Bingjiao.

Sixth seed Sindhu, who was playing her first event after the Rio Olympics, notched up a 21-14, 21-19 victory over Bingjiao in the match that lasted 37 minutes.

This is the fourth meeting between Sindhu and Bingjiao as the Indian had lost twice to the Chinese with the only victory coming in the Malaysia Open in April.

After this win, Sindhu will improve her head-to-head record against Bingjiao to 2-3.

The 21-year-old from Hyderabad will next take on World No. 12 Sayaka Sato of Japan.

Sindhu had reached the finals of the Denmark Open in the last edition.
