LIVE India Open Super Series semi-final PV Sindhu vs Sung Ji-hyun – Indian shuttler grabs first game 21-18

This was Sindhu's seventh win against the Korean who is world number four. For 47 minutes, chants of "Sindhu..."

Marin too said that she produced her best performance in last year's Rio Olympics after which injuries affected her performances. The week here at the India Open was good.

This was not the first meeting between Sindhu and Marin since their classic Olympic clash in August, 2016, in which the Spaniard emerged victorious. However, Sindhu will look to avenge that loss in front of the home crowd and beat Marin to the super series title this time around. Marin fired two angling smashes to make it 9-11 before the Indian snatched three consecutive points to have a five-point advantage. In quarters, she defeated fellow Indian and 2012 Olympic bronze medal victor Saina Nehwal.

Hotel carbon monoxide leak kills child, sickens others
One Niles police officer, two Berrien County Sheriff's deputies, as well as two hotel employees were also taken to the hospital. Two hotel workers were among those hospitalized, along with several law enforcement officers who responded to the incident.

Just the start of April and this is Sindhu's second title of the season already, having bagged the China Open earlier this year. "These matches give them a lot of confidence and they are developing very well". Psychologically, this proved a massive blow and dictated the course of the match.

She won her semi-final clash against second-seeded Sung Ji Hyun of South Korea on Saturday. It was an evenly matched contest and both players showed their class throughout the game. The first game was really crucial for me. "But I believe in myself and was confident I could turn it around", Sindhu said later. It was good for my rival but bad for me.

Not taking anything away from Marin, though, Sindhu said, "Marin also played well". But, today was an all-new day a whole new game. She did not allow Carolina's deceptive over-head forehands to dictate the rallies. It was sheer luck as she was fighting for each and every point in the match... Marin, meanwhile, has not won a single title ever since her Olympic glory.
