The Denmark Open has marked the resumption of the BWF calendar which has been on a halt since March following the outbreak of novel coronavirus.

In yet another stellar performance, ace Indian shuttler Kidambi Srikanth breezed into the quarters of the Denmark Open, registering a facile victory over Canada’s Jason Anthony Ho-Shue.

Top Indian shuttler Kidambi Srikanth on Thursday came out with yet another commanding performance as he defeated Canada’s Jason Anthony Ho-Shue in straight-games to enter the quarterfinals of the ongoing Denmark Open. Srikanth, seeded fifth, defeated Ho-Shue 21-15, 21-14 in just 33 minutes to make it to the last eight of the Super 750 tournament.

Back in action after seven months, Srikanth had beaten England’s Toby Penty 21-12, 21-18 in his opening round match on Wednesday.

The former world number one will next lock horns with second seed Chou Tien Chen of Chinese Taipei.

The ongoing Super 750 tournament is the only event taking place this year in Badminton World Federation’s calendar after multiple tournaments were forced to cancel and the Asia leg and the World Tour Final were postponed to January next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
