New Delhi: Indian shuttler Arvind Bhat notched up a come-from-behind victory over Hsu Jui Ting of Chinese Taipei to move into the third round of the men`s singles competition in Dutch Open in Almere, The Netherlands.

The 15th seed former national champion lost the first game 22-24 in a close fight despite starting off well. However, that did not deter the 34-year-old Indian as he quickly made amends to his game and bagged the next one 21-13.

Bhat, who got a first round bye, followed it up with a 21-19 scoreline in the final game, to clinch the second round tie that lasted little over an hour.

He will take on Gabriel Ulldahl of Sweden later in the day.
