PV Sindhu loses to World No-2 Yamaguchi in final

PV Sindhu has booked her place in the finals of the Dubai World Superseries Finals 2017.

Sindhu clinched the India Open Super Series and Korea Open Super Series, besides bagging the silver at Glasgow World Championship and finishing as runners-up at Hong Kong Open last month. Sindhu, who had defeated World No. 15 Sayaka twice this season, dominated the match from start to finish on Thursday.

Chen wins two points to reduce the lead to 15-13. She played powerful smashes that often caught the Japanese in two minds.

Despite trailing for most part of the first half of the opening game, Sindhu hit a good patch and won six straight points to lead 11-8 at the break. For Yamaguchi, the start itself was a big disaster and she could never recover from the early setback as Sindhu shook the Japanese to bag the first set in 14 minutes. In the match, Sindhu used her height to her advantage, playing a mix of attack and defence, coupled with tiring rallies to unsettle the young Chinese shuttler for the second time in as many months.

However, Yamaguchi fought back and surged past Sindhu in the second game before closing it out at 21-12. There will not be any easy points where I was leading 11-2, 11-3 like yesterday (vs Yamaguchi on Friday).

Chen is not letting this one go without a fight- 2 points to her and the score is 13-11 now. Sindhu will take the court after this match. Such was Sindhu's dominance that Yamaguchi could gain another five points as the Indian closed all the escape routes before winning at 21-13.

The decider began in Sindhu's favour as the Indian looked like she had come back with fresh energy and raced to a commanding 4-0 lead. Sindhu played some rallies and was very persistent and clever in the end to pull off the match.

The rallies kept getting longer and longer and the game remained neck-and-neck from there.

However, Sindhu improved her defensive game and looked confident.
