Incheon: Indian tennis players Yuki Bhambri, Sanam Singh and Ankita Raina registered comfortable wins in their respective singles matches to sail into the pre-quarterfinals of the 17th Asian Games, here today.

All the three Indians were hardly tested by their opponents as they registered straight set wins without breaking any sweat at the Yeorumul Tennis Courts.

In the men's singles, Yuki made short work of Jabor Mohammed Al Mutawa 6-1 6-0 in 54 minutes while Sanam took just 48 minutes to get the better of Kuwait's A H Alshatti Abdulhameed 6-1 6-2 in 46 minutes in another second round encounter.

Ankita, on the other hand, was at her lethal best as the ace Indian women's singles player did not drop a single game en route to her 6-0 6-0 win over Gotov Dulguunjargal of Mongolia in the second round duel that lasted mere 26 minutes.

Sanam will next play Korea's Hyeon Chung for a place in the quarterfinals tomorrow, while Yuki will be up against Christopher Benjamin Rungkat of Indonesia.

In the women's singles, Ankita will face Eri Hozumi of Japan in the pre-quarters.
