Gimcheon (South Korea): World No.10 P.V. Sindhu won her quarterfinal match to proceed to the women's singles semi-finals of the $200,000 Badminton Asia Championships at the Gimcheon Indoor Stadium here Friday.




The World Championship bronze medallist lost the first game 14-21 but came back strongly to win the next two games 21-13, 21-10 in 58 minutes against Thai Ongbumrungpan Busanan. With the win, the Hyderabadi has taken an unbeaten 3-0 lead in career meetings over the Thai girl.

The Indian faces a tough last four clash against Chinese World No.2 Shixian Wang. Though Sindhu has a 3-1 lead against the reigning All-England champion, significantly Shixian beat Sindhu on her way to clinching the India Open Super Series title last month.

Meanwhile in the men's singles quarter-final, R.M.V. Gurusaidutt's journey ended on a disappointing note as he went down to China's Liu Kai 24-22, 9-21, 13-21 in exactly an hour.

Ashwini Ponnappa and Jwala Gutta will play their women's doubles quarter-final later in the day against Malaysian pair Anscelly Amelia Alicia and Soong Fie Cho.
