New Delhi:

Olympian Anup Sridhar advanced to the main draw after winning both his qualifying matches but compatriot Anand Pawar fizzled out giving India a mixed start at the Singapore Open Super Series in Singapore city on Tuesday.

Sridhar bounced back from a game down in his second round match to beat Chinese Yanbo Qiu 15-21, 21-19, 21-17 after a gruelling 52-minute battle.

Second seed Sridhar had defeated Canadian Stefan Wojcikiewicz 21-10, 21-11 in his first round match.

However, Anand who beat Canadian Andrew Dabeka 21-16, 21-15 in his first round match, failed to carry the momentum and went down 14-21, 16-21 to Kazushi Yamada of Japan in a half an hour second-round clash.
