Veteran shuttler Saina Nehwal advanced to the women's singles second round of the USD 170,000 Barcelona Spain Masters as Pranaav Jerry Chopra and Sikki N Reddy also recorded victories in their mixed doubles first round match here on Wednesday.

Saina beat Germany's Yvonne Li 21-16, 21-14 while Pranaav and Reddy prevailed over Denmark's Mathias Christiansen and Alexandra Boje 10-21, 21-16, 21-17.

But HS Prannoy suffered a defeat at the hands of Malaysian Daren Liew 18-21, 15-21 to bow out of the meet.

Saina is keen to keep her Olympic hopes alive after enduring a rough 2019 and a bad start to this year.
