Saina Nehwal, PV Sindhu and K Srikanth made up for initial disappointment for India by winning their group stage matches in Rio on Thursday. Sainas 21-17, 21-17 win over Brazils Lohaynny Vincente and Sindhus 21-8, 21-9 victory over Hungarys Laura Sarosi, followed by K Srikanths 21-11, 21-17 win over Mexicos Lino Munoz came after both of Indias doubles pairs -- Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy, and Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa -- lost their respective matches.Saina, who is seeded fifth, faced a tough challenge from Lohaynne (world rank No. 66). In the first game, cheered on by a vociferous home crowd, the local girl put in a remarkably assured performance. Starting with a service fault to kick off the game, Saina was both errors strewn and a tad lethargic in her movements. She was repeatedly caught off guard by the tall Lohaynny, who has barely ever made an impression on the world stage.Saina, who was playing with her right knee strapped, found herself trailing 13-14 at one stage. Each point won by the Brazilian was met with yelps of appreciation from the crowd and fist pumps from her. The players scrapped to 17-17 before Saina stamped her authority on the contest. She reeled off four straight points and finished the game with a smash.The small pocket of Indian supporters was comforted after Saina won the first game and chants of Saina Saina started to resonate in the arena. In game two, Saina started to move a lot better and raced to an 11-5 lead. Lohaynny used her wingspan to great advantage and after the players flipped sides, she launched a minor comeback. Her vocal supporters lost none of their verve and though Saina kept her nose in front, the Brazilian stayed in the contest.Coach Vimal Kumar watched on impassively even as Lohaynnys coach kept urging his ward on animatedly. Saina pulled away with her greater pedigree clearly on show. The players received an uproarious ovation on completion of the matchSaina will next take on world No. 64 Marija Ulitina on Sunday at 5.25 pm.Sindhu, who is seeded ninth, was never in trouble against Sarosi, who is ranked 68th in the world.

Sarosi committed a lot of errors and Sindhu took full toll to win the first set in 13 minutes.Sarosi, who struggled with her movement after the fall, began the second set on a better note and levelled the score at 4-4.
