Former champion and top seed PV Sindhu stormed into the quarter-final of the Syed Modi India International after beating Laura Lam of the United States in straight games in Lucknow on Thursday, January 20. The top seed needed only 33 minutes to outclass Lam 21-16, 21-13 at the Babu Banarasi Das Indoor Stadium.

PV Sindhu will take on 6th seed Supanida Katethong of Thailand in the quarter-final. Katethong defeated Kriti Bharadwaj of India 21-11, 21-7 in the women's singles second-round match on Thursday.

PV Sindhu, who won the Syed Modi Super 300 title in 2017, was knocked out of the India Open Super 500 tournament in New Delhi in the semi-final earlier this month. The World No. 7 had lost to her quarter-final opponent Katethong in the last four round in three games.

Sindhu would want to prove a point when she takes on Katethong in the quarter-final in Lucknow. She will be hoping to win a title at home and begin her proceedings in the new season on a high.

Quite a few Indians, including world championships bronze medalist and India Open champion, Lakshya Sen are in the fray in the second round matches in Lucknow on Friday.
