India’s P V Sindhu secured a straight-game win over Chinese Taipei's Tai Tzu Ying to reach the quarter-finals of the Denmark Open in Odense on Friday.

P V SindhuThe world No. 13 Sindhu, reversed her record against Ying (she lost in all three meetings against the Chinese in the past), securing a dominant 21-12, 21-15 win over the third seed in a women's singles match that lasted 34 minutes at the $650,000 Super Series Premier event.

The Hyderabadi will next take on sixth seed and former World No 1 Chinese Wang Yihan.

Sindhu has lost to Yihan four times already and the only time she had beaten the Chinese was at the World Championships in 2013.

Sindhu produced a dominating game against Ying, taking a 4-2 lead early on. She then kept extending the lead to eventually seal the opening game.

In the second game, Ying tried to put up a fight and opened up a slender 4-2 lead but the Indian clawed back in no time and broke off at 8-8 to move to 14-9 lead.

Ying narrowed down the lead to 13-14 but she could never wrest control as Sindhu marched on to shut the door on her higher-ranked opponent.
