Two-time Olympic medallist PV Sindhu reached the women's singles semi-final of the Singapore Open on Friday after beating China's Han Yue in three hard-fought games.

However, former world No. 1 Saina Nehwal's dream to win her first BWF title in three years ended, as she lost to Japan's Aya Ohori in the quarter-finals. Saina had defeated fifth seed He Bing Jiao of China in the round of 16 earlier.

In men's singles, HS Prannoy who stunned world No. 4, Chou Tien Chen of Chinese Taipei in the second round couldn't make it to the semis after losing to Japan's Kodai Naraoka 21-12, 14-21, 18-21.
