India’s two-time Olympic medalist PV Sindhu registered a struggling three-game win over Japan’s Aya Ohori in the opening round of the Indonesia Open Super 1000 badminton tournament on Wednesday. Defending world champion Sindhu made a good comeback after losing the first game and defeated Ohori 17-21, 21-17, 21-17 in a match that lasted one hour and 10 minutes to reach the pre-quarterfinals.

With this win, Sindhu took her impressive record against the Japanese to 11-0. World No. 7 Sindhu, who crashed out of the semi-finals after a straight-game loss to Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi here last week, will next face German shuttler Yvonne Lee, 23.
