Sixth seed PV Sindhu has a tough job at hand as she faces the tricky Sayaka Takahashi in the second round of the All England Open on Thursday.

Takahashi, the 13th-ranked Japanese, has been a threat to Sindhu throughout her career. The two have split their eight meetings, with Takahashi coming out on top in their last two clashes in three games.

The 29-year-old held her nerve to eke out a 21-17, 23-21 win over Thailand's World No. 29 Supanida Katethong in the first round on Wednesday. Takahashi has come into the tournament after a quarter-final finish at the German Open last week and will be eager for a deep run in Birmingham.

PV Sindhu, meanwhile, couldn't make it past the second round at the German Open. The two-time Olympic medalist, however, had a great start to the year, winning the Syed Modi International and making the semi-finals at the India Open.

She will hope to draw inspiration from those performances after having begun her All England Open campaign with a 21-18, 21-13 win over the 17th-ranked Wang Zhi Yi.
