The Indian pair of B Sumeeth Reddy and Ashwini Ponnappa prevailed over the Denmark duo of Mads Vestergaard and Natasja P Anthonisen in a hard-fought match to advance to the main draw of the mixed doubles qualifiers of the Swiss Open badminton tournament on Tuesday.

The Indian pair won 18-21, 21-16, 21-17 in a qualification first round match that lasted 59 minutes.

But it was curtains for another Indian -- Sai Uttejitha Rao Chukka -- as she conceded a walkover to Selin Hubsch of Germany in the women's singles qualification first round.

Most of the top Indian players, including PV Sindhu, Saina Nehwal and K Srikanth, are playing in the tournament.

World Championships bronze medallist Lakshya Sen has, however, withdrawn from the tournament after feeling exhausted following back-to-back final appearances at the German Open and All England Championships.
