Kashyap advances to Singapore Open quarters



Singapore, April 9 : Experienced Indian shuttler Parupalli Kashyap came up with a brilliant performance to oust fourth-seeded South Korean Son Wan Ho to enter the men's singles quarterfinals of the $300,000 Singapore Open Superseries here on Thursday.

The Commonwealth Games champion took 46 minutes to win 21-15, 22-20 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium to notch up his first victory over the World No.5 in three meetings.

Kashyap, 28, will next take on French Brice Leverdez, against whom the Hyderabadi has a 1-1 record. However, the last time they met was four years back in Malaysia.
