P.V. Sindhu creates HISTORY, ensure India its first medal at World Champ 2017

P.V. Sindhu creates HISTORY, ensure India its first medal at World Champ 2017

Though Kidambi Srikanth’s campaign came to a disappointing end in the men’s singles quarterfinals, PV Sindhu entered the women’s singles semi-finals to assure herself of at least another bronze at the BWF world badminton championships in Glasgow.

India’s PV Sindhu dominated her opponent Sun Yu of China from the word go and won the match 21-14, 21-9.  Sindhu did not allow her opponent to settle and was in full control of the proceedings.

The match ended in just 39 minutes, that clearly shows Sindhu dominance & her stunning form.

With this, P.V. Sindhu becomes the only Indian to win three medals at World Badminton Championship. She has two bronze medals already and would want to change the colour of her medal this time around.

The 22-year-old — who has been on a roll in the tournament — started the first game with a straight 3-0 lead in the opening minutes. But Yu displayed solid resistance as the two initiated a long rally before the mid-game break. Sindhu emerged victorious in the rally and the scoreline moved from 7-4 to 9-4 to 12-4 in no time.

The Indian kept attacking and seemed to be in a hurry to complete the match. She won seven back-to-back points. The Chinese tried her best for a comeback but Sindhu’s court coverage controlled the proceedings. She pocketed the first game 21-14.

The India shuttler went into the mid-game break with a seven-point advantage when the scoreline read 11-4. Sindhu sealed the mission in the 39 minute, 21-14 21-9, assuring India of a medal.
