All the three Indians were hardly tested by their opponents as they registered straight set wins without breaking any sweat at the Yeorumul Tennis Courts.

In the men's singles, Yuki made short work of Jabor Mohammed Al Mutawa 6-1, 6-0 in 54 minutes while Sanam took just 48 minutes to get the better of Kuwait's A H Alshatti Abdulhameed 6-1, 6-2 in 46 minutes in another second round encounter. (Squash: Indian Men Blank Japan 3-0)

Ankita, on the other hand, was at her lethal best as the ace Indian women's singles player did not drop a single game en route to her 6-0, 6-0 win over Gotov Dulguunjargal of Mongolia in the second round duel that lasted mere 26 minutes.

Sanam will next play Korea's Hyeon Chung for a place in the quarter-finals tomorrow, while Yuki will be up against Christopher Benjamin Rungkat of Indonesia.

In the women's singles, Ankita will face Eri Hozumi of Japan in the pre-quarters.
