Can PV Sindhu claim her first title of the season at Indonesia Open 2019?


#1

It’s been a while since we have heard the Indian Badminton star players making headlines. In the Indonesian Open 2019, the Indian shuttlers team has crashed out of the tournament with only PV Sindhu advancing to Quarter Finals.

Kidambi Srikanth, who has been struggling for a while to regain his top form, got knocked out today after 2nd-round loss to Hong Kong’s Ng Ka Long Angus 17-21, 19-21 in straight games.

Meanwhile men’s doubles team Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty and mixed doubles Team Praanav Chopra and Sikki Reddy also faced a loss in 2nd round.

Tomorrow Sindhu faces World No. 2 Nozomi Okuhara. Can she beat her arch-rival in tomorrow’s match and make it all the way to win the Championship title?

Time for Sindhu (No. 5) to gear up with confidence for Olympics 2020 and reclaim her roar against Tai Tzu (No.1), Okuhara (No. 2), Chen Yu (No. 3), and Akane Yamaguchi (No. 4). Wow! what a powerful line up of ladies!

For the past 10 years since I have been following sports, I have always realised that the year which comes 1 year before the Olympics is generally the most important for athletes. They generally carry the form forward. When it comes to PV sindhu, he is one of the biggest medal prospects we have for Olympics. I hope she regains her form.

Sindhu lost to Nozomi Okuhara in the semi-final of Singapore Open 2019 in April. She was completely outplayed by Okuhara 21-7 21-11 in straight games.

All the top 4 are equally competitive. Sindhu is capable of winning Olympic gold medal but she needs to fix her form and game in the coming year.

Sindhu is now India’s only hope at the Indonesian open. She had a tough 62 min game in the 2nd round and is now set to face her old arch rival Nozomi Okuhara in the quarter-finals. The two shuttlers continue their rivalry in the last-eight round of the BWF World Tour Super 1000 tournament. Sindhu will look to take the revenge of the Singapore open and progress to next stage. This win will surely give her a boost for the upcoming 2020 Olympics.

Sindhu won in straight games against Okuhara 21-14 21-7. Yesterday she had a good attacking game against Okuhara. Now she faces Chen Yu Fei (No. 3) in Semi-Finals.

In the other semifinal Tai Tzu lost against Akane Yamaguchi 21-9 21-15 - a surprise upset to Tai Tzu. Sindhu will take on Yamaguchi in the finals if she wins today.


#6

PV Sindhu has now reached her first final of the 2019 season. She won the singles semi-final against Chen Yufei 21-19, 21-10 today.

Sindhu had a very average season so far by her standards, will now she be able to break the duck in Jakarta? She faces Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi in the title clash. She has now more than fair chance of winning the championship.

Not her best day today. But Sindhu is definitely to a kickstart before the Tokoyo 2020.
