Two-time Olympic medallist PV Sindhu and World championship bronze medallist Lakshya Sen advanced to the women's and men's singles semifinals, at the India Open badminton tournament yesterday. Top seed Sindhu, a former world champion, got the better of compatriot Ashmita Chaliha 21-7, 21-18 in 36 minutes, while Sen rallied his way to a hard-fought 14-21, 21-9, 21-14 victory over HS Prannoy in another all-Indian quarterfinals.
The 26-year-old from Hyderabad set up a women's singles last-four clash with Thailand's sixth seed Supanida Katethong, who entered the semi finals after third seeded Yeo Jia Min, of Singapore pulled out of the tournament due to high fever. Third seeded Lakshya Sen will square off against either Malaysia's Ng Tze Yong or Ireland's Nhat Nguyen in the semi finals.
