Double Olympic medallist PV Sindhu struggled past Malaysia's Goh Wei Jin in the women's singles quarterfinals while young Aakarshi Kashyap's CWG debut ended with a 10-21, 7-21 defeat to Scotland's Kristy Gilmour.

A former world champion, Sindhu registered a come-from-behind 19-21, 21-14, 21-18 win over Goh, ranked 60th, to enter her third successive semifinals at the Commonwealth Games.

PV Sindhu tried to

mount a comeback using her height to create angles but Goh Jin Wei unleashed a flurry of smashes to take the opening game.

PV Sindhu, known for her endurance, amped up her game to tire out Goh Jin Wei with longer rallies and lead 11-8 at the second break. Goh Jin Wei, who is on a comeback trail after retiring due to health reasons last year, struggled physically and could not close the gap as the match stretched into the decider.
