Star India shuttler PV Sindhu has reached the women’s singles final in the ongoing Indonesia Open 2019 with a 21-19, 21-10 against her opponent Chen Yufei.
Interestingly, while Sindhu’s quarterfinal clash had lasted 44 minutes, her semifinal lasted 46 minutes- a testimony to how dominant she has been in the tournament.
Notably, this will be PV Sindhu’s first final of 2019 and she has been absolutely convincing in this tournament winning matches with relative ease.
In the first set, she was trailing behind. However, she stitched a remarkable comeback to win the set 21-19. After she had registered a well fought out victory in the first set, she attacked from the beginning of the second set itself and won the set 21-10.
It almost seemed like she was eager to reach the finals and wanted to dismiss Yufei out of her way to set up summit clash.
Her strategy to send her opponent all around the court prior to going for the point settling smash worked effectively in the match. Her defence was spot on too.
By her performances in the tournament so far, it is hard to tell that she has not won any tournament this season. By the standards she has set for herself, the Olympic silver medalist has had an average year.
With the Olympics approaching next year, PV Sindhu would look to take her game to the ultimate level and what could be a better start than a gold medal in the Indonesia Open.
Sindhu will now play Yamaguchi in the final on Sunday.
