Singapore Open: Sindhu reaches final

PV Sindhu.

Singapore: Indian ace shuttler and two-time Olympic medallist PV Sindhu entered the finals of women's singles on Saturday in the Singapore Open badminton tournament. She beat Japan's Saena Kawakami 21-15 21-7 in straight sets while the semifinal battle only spanned 32 minutes, PTI reported.

She is only a win away from her maiden Super 500 title in 2022.

While Sindhu took command of the match, her opponent, world no. 38, committed mistakes over mistakes and the match became one-sided.

Sindhu summoned her whipping smashes early on, but the drift in the hall made decision-making difficult also sometimes precision was lacking, but the power in her stroke play helped the Indian move to a healthy three-point lead at the break.

Sindhu also won two video referrals, punished a weak high lift and also made good calls at the baseline to move to 18-14. A power-packed smash and then two unforced errors by Kawakami helped Sindhu seal the opening game comfortably.

In the second set, Kawakami's struggles continued. She couldn't control the shuttle while Sindhu was in top form, which helped her seal the set and the game.
