<p>PV Sindhu and Lakshya Sen, two prominent Indian shuttlers, advanced to the quarterfinals of the women’s and men’s singles competitions of the US Open Super 300 badminton tournaments, respectively, with victories in straight games.</p>
<p>Third-seeded Sindhu, who has won two Olympic medals, beat Korea’s Sung Shuo Yun 21-14, 21-12. After winning the Canada Open Super 500 the previous week, Sen defeated Jan Louda of the Czech Republic in 39 minutes, winning 21-8, 23-21.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-75697″ src=”” alt=”” width=”1309″ height=”871″ srcset=” 275w,×100.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1309px) 100vw, 1309px” /></p>
<p>Following Sindhu’s match against China’s Gao Fang Jie, the men’s singles match will feature an all-Indian contest between third seed Sen and the talented 19-year-old S Sankar Muthusamy from Chennai.</p>
<p>The 2022 World Junior Championships silver medalist’s excellent run has included a valiant 21-18 21-23 21-13 victory against Israel’s Misha Zilberman.</p>
<p>In contrast to Sung, who was unable to really push the Indian throughout the match, Sindhu didn’t exert much effort. Early on, Sindhu went out to a 7-2 advantage that she later increased to 13-5.</p>
<p>Sung was able to reduce the lead to 11–14, but Sindhu put an end to any hopes of a comeback by controlling the rallies and ultimately winning the match.</p>
<p>After the switch of sides, Sung originally began to match the Indian as she held a slim 5-3 lead, but it quickly vanished as Sindhu broke off from 7-7 to advance.</p>
<p>At the half, Sindhu led 11-8, and she maintained her advantage while Sung lost her composure. From 16-12, Sindhu effortlessly racked up the last points.</p>
<p>Sen too quickly moved out to a 6-1 lead and then quickly increased that margin to 17-5 to eliminate his opponent in the first game. But in the second game, the 39-year-old Czech had a stunning comeback that was difficult for Sen.</p>
<p>Jan had leads of 8–5 and 19–14 when there was a chance for a turnaround, but Sen produced an incredible comeback with five points to tie the game at 19–19. After numerous close rallies, Sen then saved a game point to end the game.</p>
