Singapore, Apr 12 (PTI) Olympic silver medallist P V Sindhu and ace male shuttler Kidambi Srikanth registered contrasting victories in their respective events to make it to the second round of Singapore Open Superseries, here today.

Sindhu staved off a stiff challenge from 2016 All England champion Nozomi Okuhara of Japan to make a positive start to her campaign, while Srikanth blew away Kenta Nishimato of Japan in straight games in his opening duel.

Sindhu, who had clinched her maiden India Open Super Series title earlier this month, fought back from a game down to eke out a 1021 2115 2220 win in the opening round of a women's singles match that lasted an hour and two minutes.

The fifth seeded Indian will next face Indonesian Fitriani Fitriani.

Srikanth, on the other hand, crushed Nishimoto 2112 21 11 in the men's singles first round later in the day.

Srikanth will play Ihsan Maulana Mustofa of Indonesia in his next match.

Earlier in the day, runnersup at Syed Modi Grand Prix Gold in January, B Sai Praneeth also dished out a gritty performance to prevail 1721 217 2119 over Denmark's Emil Holst.

The Indian will clash with China's Qiao Bin tomorrow.

Another Indian male shuttler, Ajay Jayram, however, crashed out of the tournament after losing 1621 721 against fifth seede Yuqi Shi of China.

In women's doubles, new pair of Ashwini Ponnappa and N Sikki Reddy showed their prowess in a fighting 2119 2119 win over Malaysian combo of Yin Loo Lim and Yap Cheng Wen.

However, it was curtains for Verma brothers Sourabh and Sameer as well as for Rituparna Das in singles events.

While National Champion Sourabh failed to match Indonesia's Anthony Sinisuka Ginting and lost 1521 1421 in just 39 minutes, Syed Modi Grand Prix Gold champion Sameer battled hard before going down 2628 2123 to Hong Kong's Hu Yun.

Chinese Taipei's Hsu Ya Ching ended Rituparna's campaign, handing her a 1821 1321 defeat in 58 minutes.

Mixed doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankirteddy and Maneesha K, however, lost 1321 2116 1121 to Lu Ching Yao and Chiang Kai Hsin of Chinese Taipei, while men's doubles combo of Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy suffered a 821 1621 defeat to Japanese combo of Takeshi Kamura and Keigo Sonoda.
