Gwangju (South Korea): Indian shuttlers Kidambi Srikanth and Sameer Verma advanced to the second round of the Korea Masters after comprehensively winning their opening round contests on Wednesday.

Sixth-seed Srikanth defeated Hong Kong’s Wong Wing Ki Vincent 21-18, 21-17 in a match that lasted 37 minutes at the Gwangju Women’s University Stadium.

With the win, Srikanth has extended his dominance over Vincent, having an 11-3 head-to-head record. The win comes as a morale booster for the 26-year-old who has struggled for form since reaching the final of the India Open in March.

He will now face Japan’s Kanta Tsuneyama in the second round. (IANS)
