Chennai, Nov 28: It was a good day for Indians in the Singapore Open, a PSA challenger event for women on Wednesday with two of them making it to the quarterfinal stage.
Unseeded Tanvi Khanna, who was a member of the Indian team for the World team championship early this year, was in good touch as she wore down fourth seed Colette Sultana of Malta in straight games 11-1, 11-9, 11-6, with the match lasting just 19 minutes.
Sunayna Kuruvilla, the sixth seed, got the better of her compatriot Aparajitha Balamurukan again in straight games 11-6, 12-10, 11-6, despite the second game stretching to extra points.
Sachika Balvni was the other Indian in the fray, but she went down to second seed Lee Ka Yi of Hong Kong in the last 16 stage, a SRFI release here said. (UNI)
