Sindhu, Marin set up Rio rematch in India Open final

PV Sindhi India Open

Rio silver medallist PV Sindhu defeated Olympic champion Carolina Marin in the India Open Super Series Badminton tournament final at the Siri Fort Indoor Stadium in New Delhi. "She will have the home support but it will surely be an interesting match", 2016 Olympic champion Marin said about the mouth-watering clash with Sindhu. While the India Open had long eluded her, Sindhu was expected to be one of the favourites going into the contest.

Sindhu began the match with a balanced approach of aggression and calmness which reflected in her smashes and drop shots.

Sindhu started off 2017 by winning her first major title at home, then today she had the chance to try for one better at the Superseries level.

Sindhu then upped the ante and then pushed Marin into all corners. In a much-anticipated match of the evening, a replay of Rio Olympics title showdown, the star Indian shuttler came out with a objective and looked determined for a revenge.

Both shuttlers were ousted in the quarter-final of last month's All England Championships and both would be wanting make amends with a title in India. Marin did manage to stage a comeback in the first game and led 19-18 but Sindhu was quick to win three points on the trot and pocket the first game, 21-19. "Would like to thank them", she said. Sindhu entered the break with a 11-4 advantage as her low lift at the net proved too much for the Korean.

Just like the opening game, Marin quietly clawed her way back into the game to reduce the margin to 6-7.

This was Sindhu's second Super Series title after the China Open previous year where she defeated Sun Yu of China in the final.

Sindhu was steady as she took a 5-0 lead in the first game. Marin also won their most recent clash at the Premier Badminton League in January, a victory that does not officially count in their rivalry.

Asked about the doubles players, Gopichand said: "I think we can say that Pranaav and Sikki have done well and Chirag and Satwik are also there". The final will be a cracker, I bet. Marin, however, battled hard and went into the lead at 18-17.

"It was a good match overall".

"On-court we might be rivals but off-court we are very good friends and I am happy for her that she won as she was the better player on the day", the Spaniard added.
