Saina suffered a straight-game defeat against defending champion and World No. 1 Tai Tzu-Ying of the Chinese Taipei, going down 14-21, 18-21.

World No 3 Srikanth recovered from a lop-sided opening game to struggle past France's Brice Leverdez, ranked 23, 7-21 21-14 22-20, while Olympic and world championship silver medallist Sindhu staved off a stiff challenge from Thailand's Pornpawee Chochuwong to prevail 20-22 21-17 21-9 in a 56-minute contest.

TOISA 2018 Sportsperson of the Year Srikanth had endured a tough first round outing against Leverdez before emerging victorious 7-21, 21-14, 22-20 in the match that lasted nearly an hour.

Fourth seed Sindhu, on the other hand, would open her campaign against a relatively unknown Thail shuttler Pornpawee Chochuwong in the opening round but could face her India Open conqueror Beiwen Zhang in the next.

He looked more aggressive and his approach earned him dividends as he forced the match into decider after winning 21-14.

Saina started the second game on a positive note and led the proceedings from the beginning.

With the Taiwanese sending the shuttle to the net on four occasions on the trot, Saina managed to lead 16-11.

In women's doubles, India's Meghana Jakkampudi and Poorvisha Ram lost 14-21, 11-21 to fifth seed Shiho Tanaka and Koharu Yonemoto of Japan in their opening round match. Indian men's doubles duo of Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy bowed out of the tournament after losing 20-22, 12-21 to Marcus Ellis and Chris Langridge of England in the first round.
