India ace P V Sindhu advanced to the quarterfinals with a straight-game win over Japan’s Sayaka Sato but B Sai Praneeth crashed out of the French Open BWF World Tour Super 750 tournament in Paris.

Sindhu, seeded third, dished out a compact game to outwit Sayaka 21-17 21-16 in a second-round match on Thursday to set up a clash with seventh-seeded Chinese He Bingjiao.

However, Praneeth was no match for Asian Games champions Jonatan Christie of Indonesia, going down 16-21 14-21 in a men’s singles match.

The men’s doubles pairs of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty and Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy too put up a good show, progressing to the quarterfinals with straight game wins.

While Satwik and Chirag defeated China’s He Jiting and Tan Qiang 21-13 21-19, Manu and Sumeeth stunned third-seeded Chinese combination of Liu Cheng and Zhang Nan 21-14 21-16 in another match.

However, it was curtains for Meghana Jakkampudi and Poorvisha S Ram as the duo went down 15-21 13-21 to fourth-seeded Indonesian pair of Greysia Polii and Apriyani Rahayu.
