Ace Indian shuttlers P.V. Sindhu and Kidambi Srikanth on Wednesday progressed to the second round of the $1,250,000 Indonesia Open BWF World Tour Super 1000 tournament after winning their opening round matches. However, there was disappointment for B. Sai Praneeth and H.S. Prannoy as they suffered an early exit.

Fifth-seeded Sindhu had to fight it out against Japan's Aya Ohori as she came from a game behind to win 11-21, 21-15, 21-15 in a match that lasted almost an hour.

In the men's singles event, world no 9 Kidambi Srikanth found it relatively easy as he went past Japan's Kenta Nishimoto 21-14, 21-13 in the contest that lasted for 38 minutes.

However, Prannoy and Praneeth crashed out of the men's singles competition. Praneeth, who had made it to the Swiss Open final this year, went down 15-21, 21-13, 10-21 to Hong Kong's Wong Wing Ki Vincent. On the other hand, despite a good show, Prannoy couldn't get past China's second seed Shi Yu Qi as he lost 21-19, 18-21, 20-22 in the 71-minute contest.

There was also disappointment for the mixed doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Ashwini Ponnappa as they too lost 13-21, 11-21 to Winny Oktavina Kandow and Tontowi Ahmad of Indonesia in 28 minutes.
