India's Ankita Das registered a comprehensive 4-0 win over her Kuwait opponent to advance to the women's singles second round of the table tennis in the 17th Asian Games at the Suwon Gymnasium here Monday.

The Indian routed Alshammari Menwah of Kuwait 11-4, 11-9, 11-3, 11-9 in just 16 minutes to move into the next round.

Ankita was in top form and didn't give her opponent any time to settle down, taking the first game 11-4 in just three minutes.

The Kuwaiti player put up some resistance with the Indian going for some risky shots but in the end Ankita wrapped the second game 11-9 in five minutes.

The third went in the same vein as the first with Ankita calling all the shots. The game ended in just three minutes 11-3 in favour of the Indian.

Alshammari tried her best to win back some pride and in some respects managed to do that after winning nine points in the fourth game but it still wasn't enough as Ankita sealed the game and thus the match, winning 11-9 in five minutes.
