India's star shuttler PV Sindhu has opened her campaign in 2019 by progressing into the quarter-final of the Indonesia Masters on Thursday.

The second seed defeated local favourite Gregoria Mariska Tunjung 23-21, 21-7 in 37 minutes. The Indian faced some competition in the opening game but completely dominated the second to keep her unbeaten record against Tunjung intact.

In men's singles, former World Number 1 Kidambi Srikanth went past Japanese star Kenta Nishimoto to progress into the quarters. Srikanth outclassed his opponent 21-14, 21-9 in a match that lasted half an hour.

Last week, Srikanth had lost at the quarter-final stage of the Malaysia Masters.
