India's ace shuttler PV Sindhu has cruised into the quarterfinals of the Women's badminton singles with a commanding win over Uganda's Husina Kobugabe.

Sindhu defeated Kobugade with a scoreline of 21-10, 21-9 in their round of 16 encounter.

The Indian ace was part of the mixed team that missed out on the gold a few days ago. While Sindhu was able to secure the win over her opponents, her teammates let her down as Malaysia won 3-1.

The 27-year-old shuttler has switched her focus now on earning an individual gold for the country in Birmingham and her determination was evident during the match against Kobugade.

In the first game, the Indian ace didn't get off to the best of starts and was

trailing 2-3 at one point. However, Sindhu got into a rhythm quickly and it was just one-way traffic from that point.

She quickly raced to a 11-4 lead at the halfway mark and Kobugade had no answer to the onslaught from Sindhu.

While the Indian ace did make a couple of uncharacteristic errors after the break, she had no issues in securing the game 21-10.

In the second game, Sindhu raced into a 11-6 lead at the halfway mark. After the break, there was no stopping the 27-year-old as she claimed the match and a safe passage into the quarterfinals.

She closed the match with the score of 21-9. With the win, Sindhu kept the momentum alive that could propel her into the final and assure India of a medal.
