  • Hong Kong Open Sindhu beats Intanon to enter final

Sindhu came out on strong in the second game and tried to play her shots. But not this time, as Tai was crowned the Hong Kong Super Series champion defeating the second seed Indian 21-18, 21-18. But a string of errors and a flawless display by Tai lead to Sindhu losing 5 straight points and the match itself.

The match belonged to the Taiwanese shuttler from the start.

China's Zheng Siwei and Huang Yaqiong took 35 minutes to win the mixed doubles final 21-15, 21-13 over Danish shuttlers Mathias Christiansen and Christinna Pedersen. She used her reach to catch the shuttle early and placed it in hard positions to narrow the deficit to 6-7. Her silver medal win in the women's singles event of the 2016 Summer Olympics made her the first Indian shuttler to reach the final of an Olympics badminton event and the youngest Indian to make a podium finish in an individual event at the Olympics.

Sindhu clawed back to level the score, but a long rally at 18-18 saw the string of her racquet broke.

However, Tai dominated the proceedings after the interval, racing to 17-12. She went on to gain a lead of 11-8 by the break. Tai Tzu stamped her authority by playing ruthless and aggressive badminton, making the most of acute angles.

Sindhu fought back brilliantly in the second game in what seemed to be a momentum changer in not only the game but the match as well.
