Tai Tzu Ying and Anders Antonsen continued their charge in the Badminton World Federation (BWF) World Championships in Huelva after overcoming challenges from India's P.V. Sindhu and Lee Zii Jia of Malaysia respectively.

In the women's tournament, Chinese Taipei's Tai cruised past 2019 champion Sindhu 21-17, 21-13 to setup a semi-final tie with China's He Bingjiao.

He dispatched countrywoman Han Yue 21-16, 21-18 in Spain.

The top seed claimed victory in 42 minutes to record her 15th win against Sindhu who was unable to build a lead greater than one throughout the entire match.

Elsewhere in the women's quarter-finals, Japan's Akane Yamaguchi beat An Se-young of South Korea in a back-and-forth tie which ended 21-7, 11-21, 21-10.

China's unseeded Zhang Yiman awaits her in the final four following an upset of Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand earlier in the day.

Srikanth Kidambi crushed the Netherlands' Mark Caljouw 21-8, 21-7 in what was their first meeting.

The Indian took the victory after just 26 minutes of play.

He is set to face compatriot Lakshya Sen in the semi-finals following the 20-year-old's 21-15, 15-21, 22-20 defeat of China's Zhao Jun Peng.

Kidambi will be just the second seeded player he has faced throughout the tournament following a series of shock early exits including Olympic gold medallist Viktor Axelsen crashing out in the first round.

Axelsen's Danish teammate and third seed Anders Antonsen produced a 12-21, 21-8, 11-1 comeback victory against Lee Zii Jia after the Malaysian was forced to retire.

The sixth seed picked up the tournament-ending injury at the midway point of the second game.

Antonsen will play Loh Kean Yew of Singapore in the next round.

Loh prevented a third Indian player advancing in the men's singles after defeating Prannoy Kumar 21-14, 21-12.
