The two players played well after the initial exchange in the first game but Sindhu took command right from the very beginning of their match. In the meantime, Sindhu maintained a lead of two points by scoring 6-4 and took the first game by 21-12. World No. 7 dominated her opponent as in first set she had won seven back-to-back points.
In the second game, Yvonne Li showed some signs of recovery as she was trying hard to pull herself back into the game by getting closer to Sindhu in terms of points. However, Hyderabad’s 26-year-old Sindhu did not let her opponent gain any momentum and easily won her second game to cruise to quarters of the Indonesia Open Super 1000.
