Odense, Denmark: India's Saina Nehwal and R.M.V. Gurusaidutt made their way into the quarterfinals by notching up easy wins at the $400,000 Denmark Open at the Odense Sports Park here Thursday.
However, the campaigns of World No. 13 Parupalli Kashyap and Ajay Jayaram came to an end in the men's singles second round of the penultimate Super Series Premier event of the year.
Defending champion Saina looked well on course to retain her title by thrashing her inexperienced Scottish opponent Kristy Gilmour in a second round tie. The Hyderabadi won 21-12, 21-7 in exactly half an hour.
