Star Indian shuttlers PV Sindhu and Kidambi Srikanth had another easy day as they stormed into the quarterfinals of the women’s and men’s singles events, respectively, with comfortable wins at the Commonwealth Games today.

Sindhu, a silver medallist at the 2018 Gold Coast CWG, expectedly faced no resistance from Uganda’s Husina Kobugabe, winning 21-10 21-9 in her pre-quarterfinals match. Srikanth, who had also finished second in Gold Coast, didn’t break a sweat on his way to a 21-9 21-12 win over Sri Lanka’s Dumindu Abeywickrama in the men’s singles. Earlier, the women’s pairing of Gayatri Gopichand and Treesa Jolly had entered the last-eight stage with a 21-2 21-4 win over Mauritius’ Jemimah Leung For Sang and Ganesha Mungrah.

Sindhu will now face Malaysia’s Goh Jin Wei for a place in the semifinals. Sindhu had defeated Goh in two tight games in the final of the mixed team final and can ill afford to lower her guard against the 22-year-old Malaysian, winner of the World Junior Championships gold in 2015 and 2018.

Former world No. 1 Srikanth will face England’s Toby Penty.
