SINGAPORE, April 9 (IANS): Indian shuttlers Parupalli Kashyap and HS Prannoy notched up superb victories by defeating seeded players to enter the men�s singles quarter-finals at the $300,000 Singapore Open Superseries here on Thursday.
However, it was the end of the road for third seed Kidambi Srikanth and women�s doubles pair of Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa who lost their respective second round matches at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The experienced Kashyap came up with a brilliant performance to oust fourth-seeded South Korean Son Wan Ho. The Commonwealth Games champion took 46 minutes to win 21-15, 22-20, registering his first victory over the World No.5 in three meetings.
