in
35
minutes
to
extend
her
head-to-head
record
against
the

4-0.

The
26-year-old

beat

last

as
well
in
the
Denmark
Open.

Sindhu,
who
has
got
relatively
easy

until
now,
has
a
tough
match
ahead
as
she
will
face
Japanese
top
seed
Akane
Yamaguchi,
who
registered
comeback
win
against
fifth
seed
Pornpawee
Chochuwong
of
Thailand.

The
Japanese
took
little
less
than
an
hour
to
complete
the
come-from-behind
8-21,
21-12,
21-10
win
against
the
Thai
shuttler.

Sindhu
has
a
12-7
head-to-head
record
against
the
world
No.
5
Yamaguchi,
having
beaten
the
24-year
old
Japanese
in
the
Tokyo
Olympics
quaterfinals
most
recently.

The
26-year-old
Indian
who
went
on
to
clinch
the
bronze
medal
in
Tokyo,
beat
the
Japanese
top
seed
Yamaguchi
in
straight
games
21-13,
22-20.

Later
in
the
day,
Sindhu’s
compatriots
Kidambi
Srikanth
and
HS
Prannoy
will
take
on
each
other
in
the
men’s
singles
quarterfinals.
