PV Sindhu goes down fighting in Hong Kong Open final

ANI  |  Kowloon [Hong Kong] 

Ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu on Sunday suffered a heartbreak defeat at the hands of Chinese Taipei's Tai Tzu Ying in the Open final.

The fourth seeded Taipei's player defeated Sindhu 21-15, 21-17 in the summit clash that lasted for 41 minutes at the Coliseum.

The Rio Olympic silver medallist, who had won the Open last week, failed to put up a similar performance as Ying overpowered her totally.

The ace Indian shuttler had a good start as she raced away to a 6-3 lead in the first game but she wasted the opportunity and lost the next eight points, ultimately losing the first game 15-21.

Ying, who had defeated World No.1 Carolina Marin and Rio Olympic gold medallist in the last-four contest, continued her magnificent form and was not withered down when her Indian opponent raced away to a 4-1 lead in the second game.

It was neck and neck in the second game but then Ying came to her own and forced Sindhu to make many forced errors and eventually won the game 21-17 and with that the women's singles title.

All the Indians would now pin their hopes on national champion Sameer Verma, who will fight for the men's singles title against local favourite Ng Ka Long Angus.

Sameer defeated third seeded Jan O Jorgensen 21-19, 24-22 last evening to make it to his maiden Super Series final.
