New Delhi: PV Sindhu kept India's hopes alive by entering into the women's singles semifinals at the India Open Super Series Badminton Championship after beating Yui Hashimoto of Japan in straight games here on Friday.

However, HS Prannoy, B Sai Praneeth and RMV Gurusaidutt lost their respective quarterfinal matches to crash out of the men's singles event.

The 17-year-old P V Sindhu, who had beaten former World No.1 Shixian Wang of China at the Badminton Asia Championships in Taipei last week, continued with her fine form to get the better of Hashimoto 21-16 21-16 in 47 minutes.
