Macau [China], Dec.1 : Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal survived an early scare from Indonesia's Dinar Dyah Ayustine to book her place in the quarter-finals of the Macau Open Grand Prix Gold badminton tournament here on Thursday.

After going down in the first game, the London Olympics bronze medallist rebounded strongly to register a 17-21, 21-18, 21-12 win over her Indonesian opponent in the women's singles clash that lasted about an hour.

Earlier, the 26-year-old from Hisar kicked off the tournament on a promising note as she registered 21-23, 21-14, 21-18 win over Indonesia's Hanna Ramadini.
