Second seed Sindhu registered a 21-17, 21-17 win in 43 minutes over the Thai sixth seed at the Hong Kong Coliseum.

In the fil on Sunday, Sindhu will be up against top seed Tai Tzu Ying, who moved past south Korean third seed Sung ji Hyun 21-9, 18-21, 21-7 in 52 minutes. It will be a repeat of 2016 edition's fil which saw Sindhu losing to Chinese Taipei's top-ranked shuttler Tai 15-21, 17-21.
