Shah Alam: Saina Nehwal and P V Sindhu entered the women's second round of the Malaysia Open Super Series Premier on Wednesday.

However, it was a disappointing day for the Indian men who made an early exit.

After her semi-final defeat at the Indian Open last week, Saina made a confident start at the USD 550,000 event.

  • Sania notched up her sixth win over Thailand's Nitchaon Jindapol 21-16, 21-7 in 30 minutes.
  • The 26-year-old Saina who has been ranked third in this event, will next play Korea's Bae Yeon Ju, who had defeated Sindhu in the India open.
  • Sixth ranked Sindhu beats He Bingjiao of China 21-16, 21-17 in a 40-minute singles first round match to avenge her defeat to the same opponent in the 2015 Indonesian Masters and 2016 Swiss Open.
  • The two-time bronze medallist at World Championship Sindhu will now play against seventh ranked Sung Ji Hyun. Sung Ji Hyun had lost to Sania in the India Open.
