According to sources P V Sindhu and Sameer Verma advanced to the quarter-finals with straight game wins but Parupalli Kashyap bowed out of the USD 600,000 Korea Super Series following a narrow defeat in the second round, here on Thursday. Meanwhile Olympic Medalist Sindhu saw off Thailand's Nitchaon Jindapol 22-20 21-17 to set up a clash with Japan's Minatsu Mitani, who was a bronze medalist at the 2014 World Championships and had also defeated Saina Nehwal in the finals to clinch the 2012 French Open.
Accordingly Hong Kong Super Series finalist and Syed Modi Grand Prix Gold winner, Sameer defeated Hong Kong's Wong Wing Ki Vincent 21-19 21-13 in 41 minutes and he will need to raise his game by a few notches when he faces local hot favorite Son Wan Ho.
Son Wan had to dig deep to end Kashyap's run in men's singles. He battled
for an hour and 16 minutes before getting the better off the Indian 21-16 17-21
21-16 to reach the last-eight stage. Moreover World No 4 Sindhu, who clinched a
maiden silver at Glasgow World Championship recently, had come into the match
with a 1-1 record against Jindapol, who had beaten the Indian at Syed Modi
International last year.
