After winning the first match at her maiden campaign at the BWF World Super Series Final, 2016 Rio Olympic silver medalist P V Sindhu, today lost her second match 21-15, 21-17 to China’s Sun Yu. The ace Indian shutter will be facing Carolina Marin of Spain in his third match at the Super Series Finals.
Sindhu came victorious after a 12-21 21-8 21-15 win over World No. 8 Akane Yamaguchi of Japan in an entertaining opening women’s singles Group B match at the World Super Series Finals.
After mind-blowing performances in the last two qualifying tournaments, ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu had made it to the World Super Series Finals, being the first Indian to qualify for the tournamnet across all five formats of the game. The prestigious tournament, played in Dubai from December 14 to 18, features the top eight single players and double pairs from the year’s World Super Series tour.
Sindhu’s qualification for the last ticket for women’s singles to Dubai, was tight in competition with another ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal, Japan’s Sayaka Sato and Minatsu Mitani and Thailand’s Porntip Buranaprasertsuk. After her loss in the quarter finals of the Hong Kong Open, former World No 1, Saina Nehwal finished at the ninth position overall, failing to qualify for the World Super Series finals.
Other qualified players at the prestigious event in Dubai includes 2016 Rio Olympic gold medallist Carolina Marin, Chinese Taipei’s Tai Tzu Ying, who defeated Sindhu in the finals of the Hong Kong Open, Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi, China’s Sun Yu and He Bingjiao, Thailand’s Ratchanok Intanon, who won three Super Series titles in three weeks in 2016 and South Korea’s Sung Ji Hyun.
