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.
