Early morning on Tuesday, India finally had some good news when PV Sindhu, seeded no 9 at Rio won against no 8 seed Tai Tzu-Ying of Chinese Taipei. After Saina crashed out of the games a day ago, the only major hope for a medal was now pinned on Sindhu.
Sindhu will now face world no 2 Wang Yihan on 17 Aug 03:25 AM IST. It will be a tough match for Sindhu, but the way she is currently playing, we surely can expect a nail biting contest and probably for her to enter the semi-finals.
Not to forget Srikanth Kadambi who also went into quarter finals along with Sindhu. Kadambi will play Jan Jorgenson of Denmark who is ranked no 5 in the world.
After Sindhu won the pre-quarters, twitter was in full flow and we capture some of the reactions.
