World Badminton Championships: PV Sindhu, Kidambi Srikanth surge ahead

Top Indian shuttlers P.V. Sindhu and Kidambi Srikanth earned contrasting wins in their respective categories to advance at the World Championships being held at the 9000-seater Istora Senayan here on Tuesday.

Coming back from a long injury layoff, 11th seed Sindhu had to work hard for 50 minutes to move past Danish Line Kjaersfeldt 11-21, 21-17, 21-16 in the women’s singles second round. Though the two-time World Championship bronze medallist lost the first game, she found her rhythm to bounce back and win the next two games.

In the third round, the 20-year-old faces a tough task as she will go up against reigning Olympic champion and third seed Li Xuerui. The Chinese has a 2-1 advantage over Sindhu in career meetings.

Later, men’s singles third seed Srikanth got off to a positive start with a 21-10, 21-13 win over Australia’s Michael Fariman in 24 minutes. The Guntur-born lad will next take on Chinese Taipei’s Hsu Jen Hao against whom Srikanth won the only match played between them last year in Denmark.
