PV Sindhu and Sameer Verma advanced to the quarter-finals with straight-game wins in their respective women's and men's singles preliminaries of the $600,000 Korea Super Series on Thursday.

The Japanese star defeated Sindhu in a marathon final at World Championships just two weeks back. Okuhara, 22, has a 4-3 lead in career meetings against 22-year-old Sindhu and Sunday will present the Indian a great chance to seek a revenge for the Glasgow loss.

Yamaguchi faces compatriot and world champion Nozomi Okuhara, who cruised past Yip Pui Yin of Hong Kong 21-15, 21-10, for a place in the final.

# Sindhu has a huge lead (11-5) in the third and deciding game, she is in the driver's seat to win the contest. Sindhu got on top of the long rallies but Okuhara put up a strong resistance picking up the Sindhu's smashes easily. Bingjiao played a series of bad shots helping Sindhu to claim the first game 21-10.

Her husband thinks about it often, though. "It's opened up a whole world for me", he said. "You don't worry about anything". Coming to the USA was the only way they would stay healthy, so his parents successfully applied to study there.

In the women's singles match, Sindhu eked out a 6-2 lead early on in the opening game but Mitani managed to claw back and turn the tables around, reaching 11-9 at the break.

Okuhara attempted to tire Sindhu again with the longest rally of the match lasting 56 shots. Okuhara got things running in the final game, before Sindhu took over.

The Indian will take on sixth seed He Bingjiao of China in the semifinals. In a hard fight in the semi-final, Sindhu dominated He Bingjiao on Saturday. However Bingjiao picked up in the second game taking it on Sindhu with 17-21. Sindhu only had to maintain her composure.
