BWF World Championships: Kidambi Srikanth advances to quarters, beats China's Lu Guangzu 21-10, 21-15

Kidambi Srikanth advanced to the quarterfinals of the BWF World Championship in Huelva, Spain after defeating Chinese shuttler Lu Guangzu on Thursday. The former world number one closed the match in straight games (21-10, 21-15),which was more or less a one-sided affair.

Srikanth took a healthy lead in the opening game, which also saw the Indian secure seven consecutive points.

Guangzu showed some fightback in second game as it was neck-and-neck contest between the two, with Srikanth taking a late lead after the midway mark.
