PV Sindhu enters final of India Open World Superseries

LIVE India Open Super Series semi-final PV Sindhu vs Sung Ji-hyun – Indian shuttler grabs first game 21-18

However, it was the Indian shuttler, who won their last meeting, at the Dubai World Superseries Finals past year, exacting revenge for her disappointing defeat in Rio de Janeiro. Her bodyline shots created trouble for Sindhu again.

In the first game, Hyun had opened up a 6-3 lead but Sindhu caught up with her rival when the Korean hit the net.

Today, the Sindhu-Marin rivalry is the new talk of badminton world. Sindhu went into the break with a slim 11-9 lead.

The closest Sung came close to erase the deficit was when one cross-court smash caught Sindhu off-guard giving the scoreline a 17-16 in favour of the Indian. She lost the first point but won the subsequent to win the second game 21-16 and become the Women's Singles champion.

PV Sindhu completed her fourth career victory over Carolina Marin, as she notched-up a 21-19, 21-16 win, in front of a home crowd. But Sung stepped up her game and fought her way back with the help of attacking brand of badminton. Sindhu got a handle on her nerves, however, and kept the pressure on until she had finished the victor.


The focus immediately shifted to the final and Sindhu hoped that she gets the full crowd support.

But, there was no fault in the second match point as she put one into Marin's body, which the Spaniard managed to pick, could not cross over the net. She started the new worldwide season with a win at the Syed Modi global Grand prix Gold tournament at Lucknow in January.

"It is a great victory, I can not express my happiness in words", said Sindhu later. This is where the Spaniard is considered to be a risky opponent as she can change the tempo of the match at will. I committed a few unforced errors and that was the key of the game. "After China Open, this is my second title, and that too at the start of the year", she added.

With this win, double World Championship bronze medallist Sindhu equalised 1-1 in head-to-head record against Saina.

Newly-crowned India Open Super Series champion PV Sindhu feels that winning the hard-fought first game against Carolina Marin proved to be crucial in the final outcome of the match.
