And that's it from the coverage of the second day at the Japan Open Superseries. It was a mixed day for the Indian shuttlers as PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal were shown the exit door in the second round against Nozomi Okuhara and Carolina Marin respectively. In the men's singles, Sameer Verma went down fighting against Shi Yuqi of China in three games. However, Kidambi Srikanth and HS Prannoy registered splendid victories to march into the quarter-finals. Sikki Reddy and Pranaav Jerry Chopra too were brilliant after reaching their maiden Superseries quarters.
We will be back tomorrow to provide the live scores and updates. Bye!
