Rio de Janeiro: Two-time World Championship bronze-medallist PV Sindhu advanced to the quarter-finals of the women’s singles competition after notching up a dominating straight-game win over Chinese Taipei’s Tai Tzu Ying at the Rio Olympics 2016 on Monday.

The 21-year-old from Hyderabad outclassed eighth-seed Tai 21-13, 21-15 in a 40-minute pre-quarter-finals clash. She will next take on the winner of the match between Thailand’s Ratchanok Intanon and Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi.

Sindhu, who has a 2-4 record against Tai Tzu, having beaten her last at the Denmark Open in 2015, opened up a 3-1 lead early on and even though Tai came back to draw level at 5-5, the Indian managed to lead 11-6 at the break.
