Yet another time the Olympic silver medallist PV Sindhu has made us all proud! She wrapped up her maiden Super Series Premier label after binding out Sun Yu of China in the championship of the USD 700,000 China Open badminton tournament.
Sindhu, who turned out to be the toast of the nation after being the first Indian women to win a silver at Rio Games, sustained her rampage as she hauled up the esteemed title after beating Sun 21-11 17-21 21-11 in the clash that lasted for nearly an hour and nine minutes.
Sindhu ranking 11th in the World had come into the match with a 2-3 nose to nose record but then data counted little when she took the quad at the Haixia Olympic Sports Center.
Sindhu dipped out a dominating game as she zoomed to a healthy 11-5 lead early on.
Ultimately, it was a cross court return which earned Sindhu an enormous 12 game points at 20-8. A couple of crash on Sindhu’s backhand and forehead and a drop going to the net helped her to save three points. But Sindhu potted the opening encounter after dominating a similar game and finishing it.
A sharp smash and a wonderful return on Sindhu’s backhand facilitate her to grab an 18-16 lead which became 19-16 after the Indian lost a cassette referral. At 20-16, Sun hit the nets but she roared back into the competition when Sindhu’s prolonged low return at the square could not cross the net.
Reverting back to her winning side of the court, Sindhu once yet again started with new enthusiasm as the duo locked them in a battle for domination. As a result, tune-up changed hands too rapidly as they stimulated together till 6-6.
Sindhu then clutched the match point whilst Sun lets go of the shuttle as it kissed the back line and then our champ pushed the shuttle at the back, leaving the Chinese trapped before letting out a cheerful scream.
