Internet Desk: Ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu cruised in the last four of the Hong Kong Open Super Series with an emphatic 21-12, 21-19 win over Japanese Akane Yamaguchi on Friday.

Second seed Sindhu outplayed the fifth seed Japanese 21-12, 21-19 in a match which lasted 37 minutes. It was Sindhu’s fourth win over the Japanese in their six meetings.

On Thursday, Sindhu made it to the quarters – who slipped a place to be number three in the world rankings – after defeating Japan’s Aya Ohori 21- 14, 21-17 in a second round match.

The Olympic silver medallist, seeded second dominated the proceedings right from the start. The 22 year old shuttler will look to brush aside her disappointment in the China Super Series Premier when she lost to Chinese Gao Fangie in the quarter finals.

The World No. 2 has been playing continuously for the last four weeks, participating in the Denmark Open, French Open, the National Championship in Nagpur and China Super Series.
