It wasn't my day: Sindhu

IANS  |  Hong Kong 

India's top-ranked women's shuttler P.V. Sindhu was pleased with her performance at the Open despite losing in the final and insisted it was just not her day.

Sindhu lost to Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei 15-21, 17-21 in the final here on Sunday.

"It was a good game overall. It was her day. I played well but she played well at the net, she didn't make any mistakes. There were good rallies. I'm happy with my performance. It's okay, I'll go back and train hard. A bit upset, but overall it went well. I congratulate her for the win," Sindhu said after the match.

"I've played her many times. She's a tricky player, has good strokes and deception. I was prepared for everything. But then one has to win and one has to lose. I was confident because of that. I played the final here. It was anybody's game. It was her day, she played well."

Men's World No.43 Sameer Verma also finished runners-up but said his maiden final appearance boosted his confidence. He will now target a place in the top 10.

Verma, in his maiden Superseries final, lost to local Ng Ka Long Angus 14-21, 21-10, 11-21 in a 50-minute battle.

"I am happy to reach final, didn't expect to. While playing him, in second game I was ready to move him around the court. I got a bit tired in the third game after 11 points. Before the final, I was a bit nervous," he said.

"I felt a bit of pressure today, but now now I'm confident of making the top 10. I felt tensed because it's my first final. I talked to (brother) Saurabh yesterday."

"I won the national title in April. I was very confident then of playing at top level. After nationals I got a shoulder injury and had to take a break of 2-3 months. It was a shoulder muscle tear. The shoulder injury affected me. After my comeback I played Thailand and Chinese Taipei," he added.
