Good evening and welcome to the blog! The players are on court now.

Welcome to the live blog of the women's singles quarterfinal of the India Open at the Siri Sports Complex, New Delhi where PV Sindhu will face Spaniard Beatriz Corrales.

World No. 4 and top seed PV Sindhu eased into the quarter-finals of the tournament after a convincing win against Linda Zetchiri in the pre-quarters. The lanky Indian didn't have to break any sweat as she won in straight sets 21-10, 21-14. Previously, she had made short work of Natalia Koch  Rohde in the first round.

Although she crashed out of the Indonesian Masters last week in the quarters, it is expected that Sindhu will overcome the Spaniard's challenge without any hassle.
