Singapore: Star Indian shuttler P V Sindhu sailed into second round of the Singapore Open with a straight-game win over Lyanny Alessandra Mainaky of Indonesia here Wednesday.

Sindhu, seeded fourth, took just 27 minutes to get the better of her Indonesian rival 21-9 21-7 in a one-sided women’s singles match.

The Rio Olympic silver medallist will next play Mia Blichfeldt of Denmark.

However, it was curtains for India in the opening round of the men’s doubles competition.

The pair of Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy lost against qualifiers Danny Bawa Chrisnanta and Kean Hean Loh of Singapore 13-21 17-21 in their opener.

The mixed doubles pair of Saurabh Sharma and Anoushka Parikh too exited in the opening round after a 12-21 12-21 defeat against third seeded Thair pair of Dechapol Puavaranukroh and Sapsiree Taerattanachai.

Sixth seed Saina Nehwal will open her campaign in the women’s singles against Yulia Yosephin Susanto of Indonesia later in the day.
