Singapore, April 11 - Rising Indian shuttler Kidambi Srikanth stormed into the $300,000 Singapore Open Super Series men's singles semi-finals by ousting higher ranked player Yun Hu of Hong Kong here Friday.

The 21-year-old Hyderbadi played a marathon quarter-final lasting an hour and three minutes to overcome Yu 17-21, 21-14, 21-19 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. With the win, the Indian took a 2-0 lead in their career meetings.

The previous time they met was at the Malaysia Open Super Series Premier in January where the World No.25 also won in the deciding game.
