Indonesia Open: PV Sindhu Enters Semi-finals

PV Sindhu battled past into the semifinals of the ongoing Indonesia Open on Friday.

Playing it out at Court 2, the two-time Olympic medallist Indian rallied back to defeat South Korea’s Sim Yujin by 14-21, 21-19, 21-14 in a titanic 1 hour and 6 minutes match.

The 22-year-old Korean started quick off the blocks as she won the first game against the reigning world champion by 21-14 in 17 minutes. Sindhu then showed her immense composure as she fought back and won the second game 21-19 in a close affair to force the match into the decider.

The third game was level at 11-11 and the essay could have landed either way but the South Korean wasn’t able to hold her nerve as Sindhu clinched the final game by 21-14 in the end.

PV Sindhu will now face either Japan’s Asuka Takahashi or the shuttler from Thailand, Ratchanok Intanon in the semifinal.

However, B Sai Praneeth lost 12-21, 8-21 in straight games to Tokyo Olympic champion and second seed Viktor Axelsen of Denmark in the men’s singles quarter-finals.
