Posted August 28, 2017

PV Sindhu had made her way into the finals of World Badminton Championships by defeating China's Chen Yufie 21-13, 21-10.

PV Sindhu has become a force in world badminton.

Not ready to give up, Okuhara fell back on her extraordinary net game to save three game points.

Looking to be the first Japanese men to reach a world championships doubles final, Kamura and Sonoda did not move as well as they had in their quarterfinal victory the day before. Sindhu, seeded fourth, was a little sluggish to start with and was 3-5 at one point but she managed to reel off eight points on the trot to grab an 11-5 lead at the break. In a hard fought rally, she finally succeeded in turning the second game in her favor 22-20.

Saina took Okuhara out with a lovely misleading shot to race to an 8-2 lead.

And also because the conditions are different, the atmosphere is different here, so I shouldn't take it easy.

"My coach and I always look back at past championships to get better and improve on my game. India is proud of u @Pvsindhu1 Most breathtaking finals", he wrote.

Chen, 28, said he was under too much pressure. The age gap and the fitness levels that come with it came into play and by the time, the third game happened, the 22-year-old's younger legs were clearly holding the advantage.

And it worked. Nozomi exhausted out Sindhu by prolonging the rallies as the Hyderabadi tried to close the points quickly and made errors.
