MACAU: Three Indian shuttlers, including P V Sindhu, advanced to the second round of the USD 120,000 Macau Open Grand Prix Gold but it was curtains for Ajay Jayaram in men's singles, here today.

Two-time bronze medallist at World Championship, P V Sindhu, seeded fifth, defeated Kim Hyo Min of Korea 21-13 22-20 in a women's singles match to set up a clash with the winner of the match between Indonesia's Lindaweni Fanetri and Cheng Chi Ya of Chinese Taipei.

In men's singles, Seventh seed H S Prannoy saw off Chinese Taipei's Lin Chia Hsuan 21-19 21-15 and will meet China's Qiao Bin tomorrow.

However, it turned out to be a disappointing day for ninth seed Jayaram as he lost 11-21 17-21 to Lin Guipu of China in another men's singles match.

2010 Commonwealth Games champion Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa continued their rough patch as they lost 16-21 15-21 to Japanese pair of Yuki Fukushima and Sayaka Hirota in women's doubles event.
