Two-time silver medallist P V Sindhu produced a commanding performance in her opening match at the BWF World Championships here on Wednesday. Sindhu, who had reached the finals of Indonesia Open last month, looked in good touch as she controlled the rallies and outsmarted Chinese Taipei’s Pai Yu Po 21-14 21-14 in a 43-minute contest.
Eighth seed Saina Nehwal also made a positive start to her campaign, defeating Netherlands’ Soraya De Visch Eijbergen 21-10 21-11 to set up a clash with Denmark’s Mia Blichfeldt.
