Hong Kong Open PV Sindhu beats Akane Yamaguchi sets up semi-final date with Ratchanok Intanon

Sindhu, who slipped a place in the latest world rankings, released yesterday, will face another Japanese player in the form of Akane Yamaguchi in the next round. Sindhu won her second-round contest against Japan's Aya Ohori.

At one point, Sindhu was trailing 12-7, 18-16.

The second seed took 37 minutes to beat world no.2 Akane 21-12, 21-19 in the quarter-finals at the Hong Kong Coliseum. Sindhu again took a 3-0 lead in the second game and was looking to replicate what she did in the opener.
