Ace shuttler Saina Nehwal emerged lone Indian survivor in the singles event after thumping Hung Yung Chan of Hong Kong to storm into the quarter-finals of the Yonex Sunrise Indian Open Grand Prix in Hyderabad on Thursday.
Women's second-seed Saina rode on the unforced errors of her opponent and hammered her 21-8, 21-8 to set up a last-eight clash with fifth-seed Xian Wong of Malaysia. Meanwhile, Jwala weaved magic along with mixed doubles partner V Diju and doubles pair Shruti Kurian to notch up a double victory on Thursday.
Second-seed Jwala and Diju beat Xiaolong Liu and Jinhua Tang of China 21-10, 21-15 in just 21 minutes to set up a clash with another Chinese pair of Tao Jiaming and Xiaoli Wang in the mixed doubles quarter-finals.
Jwala then teamed up with Shruti and the duo kept aside their differences to get past compatriots Pradnya Gadre and Prajakta Sawant 21-15, 19-21, 21-15 in the women's doubles match.
India's top ranked women's doubles pair will meet the Malaysian-Singaporean duo of Chiou Hwee Haw and Yujia Li in Friday's quarter-final clash.
However, it was end of the road for other Indians in singles category
