Indian shuttlers Kidambi Srikanth and Sameer Verma advanced to the quarterfinals in men’s singles of the Hong Kong Open World Tour Super 500 tournament on Thursday.

However, Olympic Silver medalist P V Sindhu lost to South Korean Sung J. H. 26-24, 22-20 in the pre-quarter-final of the women’s singles category.

Fourth-seeded Srikanth, who had claimed a silver medal at this year’s Commonwealth Games, defeated fellow Indian H S Prannoy 18-21 30-29 21-18 in a thrilling match. Srikanth will face either Japan’s Kenta Nishimoto or Thailand’s Kantaphon Wangcharoen.

The mixed doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Ashwini Ponnappa lost 17-21 11-21 to Chinese Taipei’s Lee Yang and Hsu Ya Ching to bow out of the tournament.
