Sindhu reaches third successive World C’ships final
Basel, Aug 24 (IANS) For the third year in a row, ace India shuttler P.V. Sindhu stormed into the finals of BWF World Championships after defeating China’s Chen Yu Fei in straight games. The Rio Olympic silver medallist took 40 minutes to outclass World No. 3 Yu Fei 21-7, 21-14.
Sindhu looked sharp and focussed from the very first game itself while Yu Fei lacked pace as the Indian shuttler took just 15 minutes to take the first game. Sindhu continued to dominate the chinese shuttler in the second game. However, Yu Fei showed some fight in the second game as compared to the one-sided first game. But it wasn’t enough to stop the Indian shuttler as she took the second game to enter the finals.
Sindhu will now take on the winner of the second women’s singles semi-final between former champions Ratchanok Intanon and Nozomi Okuhara in Sunday’s final.
