Sindhu outwits Zhi Yi for Singapore Open crown

P V Sindhu won the Singapore Open Super 500 badminton tournament, prevailing over China’s Wang Zhi Yi in the women’s singles final, on Sunday.

In a hard-fought title round, the Indian double Olympics medallist stayed strong in the key moments to win 21-9, 11-21, 21-15 over the 22-year-old reigning Asian Championships gold medallist.

The title run will be a big boost for Sindhu, who will lead the Indian charge at the Commonwealth Games, starting July 28, in Birmingham.

This was her third title of the season — having won two Super 300 crowns in Syed Modi International and Swiss Open — and an addition to her brimming cabinet which has a gold, two silver and two bronze medals from the World Championships and two Olympic medals.
