Singapore, June 18 — Indian shuttlers P.C. Thulasi, Arundhati Pantawane and B. Sai Praneeth entered the main draw after winning the qualification rounds of their respective categories at the Singapore Open Super Series here Tuesday.

The youngster beat Japanese Riichi Takeshita 21-12, 22-20 in 36 minutes after overcoming Malaysian Muhammad Hafiz Hashim 21-13, 21-15 in 26 minutes. He will face second seed Yun Hu of Hong Kong in the first round of the main draw Wednesday.

However, it was the end of the road for the rest of the Indian shuttlers.

Singapore's Wei Han Tan and Dellis Yuliana beat Jwala Gutta and Prajakta Sawant 22-20, 21-12 in 27 minutes in the first round of the women's doubles qualifiers.
