Rio Olympic Games silver medallist, P. V. Sindhu, won her first round match of the Denmark Open Superseries on Wednesday. Sindhu, who is playing her first tournament after Olympic success, defeated China's He Bingjiao 21-14, 21-15.

The Hyderabad girl will face Sayaka Sato of Japan in the second round of the superseries.

Sindhu, who won two bronze medals at the World Championships, defeated three top players en route to her silver medal but interestingly her best performance at any Super Series tournament has been a runners-up finish at Denmark Open last year.

"Olympics has given me a lot of confidence and with the same confidence I hope I would go further. Responsibilities will always be high from now on. It's just that I shouldn't take much of pressure and play my game. I just want to go to the court and give my 100 per cent," said Sindhu before her departure.
