Sindhu wins maiden India Open Super Series title

Sindhu wins maiden India Open Super Series title

Fans, who kept chanting "Sindhu" and "India" throughout the match, will witness a rematch of the Olympic final tomorrow. In the Olympic champion's favour was the fact that she had got the better of the Indian in most of the matches they had played and in the one that really counted - at Rio a year ago. The win also narrowed down Sindhu's head-to-head record against the Spaniard to 4-5.

"It was a long match, I was prepared both mentally and physically".

"Today, I couldn't play my natural game".

Although the Spanish shuttler gave a neck-to-neck competition in the first game, she appeared nervous in the end. "It will motivate me to prepare for the upcoming World Championship". I committed a few unforced errors and that was the key of the game.

"So, I was prepared from the first point itself". The score read 21-19, 21-16, but believe you me, they played and fought for every inch, nothing came easy and why should it. But, today was an all-new day a whole new game. Marin also won their most recent clash at the Premier Badminton League in January, a victory that does not officially count in their rivalry. I got some injury after that, had to leave some tournaments.

India's badminton star PV Sindhu added yet another title to her name after winning the India Open Superseries title in New Delhi on Sunday.

KWWL reports the story and says police were called to control the crowd at Sharky's, a Cedar Falls bar, for an incident there. According to the Tribune , Hall faces charges of public intoxication, interference and disorderly conduct by fighting.

Marin, in contrast, hasn't won a title since her Olympic glory. But then she hit two returns outside the area and handed Sindhu a match point which she converted as Marin hit the return long. "But I had faith in myself and knew that I could go the distance", an ecstatic Sindhu said after the match. But Sindhu was prepared this time around as she raised the tempo once again to clinch three straight points and pocket the game. And at the midway break, the Indian held an 11-4 lead.

Sindhu, in fact, made her intentions clear early in the contest.

In the decider, Sindhu looked determined from the start.

Women: 3-P. V. Sindhu bt 1-Carolina Marin (Esp) 21-19, 21-16. 2016 runners-up Ricky Karanda Suwardi / Angga Pratama shut down China's Li Junhui / Liu Yuchen (pictured bottom), the young men who will be world #1 come Thursday.

In mixed doubles, second seeded Chinese Lu Kai and Huang Yaqiong will take on Zheng Siwei and Chen Qingchen in the Final.
