Sindhu reaches semi-finals at BWF Korea Open

Sindhu reaches semi-finals at BWF Korea Open”

Olympic silver medallist PV Sindhu saw off Thailand's Nitchaon Jindapol 22-20 21-17 to set up a clash with Japan's Minatsu Mitani, who was a bronze medallist at the 2014 World Championships and had also defeated Saina Nehwal in the finals to clinch the 2012 French Open. The unseeded Minatsu Mitani though was not as gritty as her compatriot Okuhara, who mentally and physically drained Sindhu only weeks ago in Glasgow.

The two booking a spot each in the finals would be a historic repeat of the World Championships final where Okuhara recently got past Sindhu in a nail biting battle to win Gold at worlds.

Sameer defeated Hong Kong's Wong Wing Ki Vincent 21-19, 21-13 in 41 minutes and will face South Korean Son Wan Ho in the quarters. She even levelled it at nine-all. The match was tight.

Verma seemed to be running with the opening game while leading 16-12, before Son mounted an extraordinary comeback by winning seven points in a row to edge ahead 19-17.

The fifth seed raced to a four-point lead (7-3) in the opening game, but Mitani caught up and in fact went into the mid-game break with a two-point lead. PV Sindhu eventually found her rhythm and edged her Japanese opponent 21-19 in the first game. She even managed to take an 11-9 with a attractive cross-court drop shot that left Mitani stranded.

Sindhu though did not let the Japanese shuttler run away with a big lead at any point of time during the first game. Sindhu's game began to wilt under pressure. Sindhu was forced onto the backcourt as Nitani dominated the nets and won the second game 21-16.

PVSindhu came out all guns blazing in the third game, although Mitani's unforced errors certainly helped. She began to control the exchanges with clever game. Sindhu continued to assert her supremacy to blunt Mitani's game before ending the match with a blistering smash.
