Paris: Rio Olympics silver medallist PV Sindhu defeated Yip Pui Yin of Hong Kong to advance in the French Open Super Series here on Wednesday.

Sindhu outplayed Yin 21-9 29-27 in a clash which lasted around 45 minutes at Coubertin-1 here.

In a relatively lop-sided first game, Sindhu thrashed her opponent with some swift court movements and powerful smashes.

The Indian shuttler had to struggle to win the second game.

In men's singles, HS Prannoy defeated Thailand's Boonsak Ponsana 21-16 21-18 to enter the second round of the tournament.

Ajay Jayaram and Sai Parneeth will take on their respective opponents later in the day.
