Shortly after, P. V. Sindhu continued her brilliant form and  sealed a spot in the women's singles quarterfinals with a comfortable 21-16, 21-16 win against Singapore's Yue Yann Jaslyn Hooi.

Meanwhile, Saina Nehwal was knocked out of the tournament after losing 21-12, 7-21, 21-13 to China's Wang Zhi Yi in a match that went on for 47 minutes. Saina won the first game with ease but the Chinese international made a powerful comeback to pocket the remaining games to seal the deal. A couple of costly service errors by Saina in the third set made it that much easier for Wang Zhi Yi.

K. Srikanth was also knocked out as he lost 16-21, 21-17, 17-21 to Weng Hong Yang in men's singles.
