P V Sindhu Grabs Gold at World Championship


#1

Third time lucky for P V Sindhu! P V Sindhu became the first Indian to win badminton World Championships at Basel on Sunday.

Two years after being robbed off the gold by Okuhara in an epic 110-minute final at Glasgow that went down as one of the greatest battles in badminton history, Sindhu finally exorcised the ghost of that heart-wrenching loss with a completely dominating win over the same opponent. Sindhu won a lop sided final with score of 21-7 21-7 in just 38 mins.

Sindhu now has five World Championships medal. Only other woman singles player with so many is former Olympics and world champion Zhang Ning of China.

Amazing win!
Sindhu completely dominated the match and Okuhara just seemed helpless in regaining her form. I think Sindhu’s match with World No. 2 Tai Tzu Ying in quarter finals proved to be a crucial win for Sindhu. After first game loss and 2 hard fought games Sindhu won 12-21, 23-21, 21-19.

A surprise early exit of World No. 1 Akane Yamaguchi also worked in Sindhu’s favor.

The semi-final match against Chen Yu Fei 21-7, 21-14 and Finals against Okuhara, both the matches were just Sindhu at her best.

Sindhu’s pursuit for the Gold at BWF World Badminton Championship eluded her since 2013.

Another historic and memorable achievement worthy of mention is B. Sai Praneeth’s bronze medal in the men’s singles. A feat achieved after Prakash Padukone’s bronze medal 36 years back in 1983.
