Rio Olympics silver medallist Sindhu lost 21-15, 12-21, 19-21 to world No.2 Yamaguchi at the Hamdan Sports Complex.

Earlier on Saturday, the 22-year-old Hyderabadi, PV Sindhu, stormed into the women’s singles final of the BWF Dubai World Super Series Finals 2017 for the first time, after beating China’s Chen Yufei in straight games in the semi-finals here.

Sindhu became the second Indian to reach the final of the prestigious season-ending tournament after Saina Nehwal finished runner-up in 2011.
