That leaves the 2016 runner-up PV Sindhu as the last Indian standing in Hong Kong. Can she make a deep run this time? It would be tough as she faces the China Open champion Akane Yamaguchi in the quarter-finals.

We'll find out tomorrow if Sindhu indeed can avenge her French Open defeat to the in-form Yamaguchi.

Till then, keep following Sportskeeda for all the latest updates from the world of sports.

We'll be back tomorrow with the live coverage of the quarter-finals.

Goodnight and goodbye!
