PV Sindhu beats Carolina Marin to win India Open Super Series

But the 21-year-old Indian showed that she could set the tempo higher than the Olympic champion as she beat the Spaniard at her own game to clinch the India Super Series women's singles title in New Delhi yesterday.

Third seed PV Sindhu takes on top seed Carolina Marin in the Women's singles final of 2017 India Open Superseries in New Delhi on Sunday. However, it was the Indian shuttler, who won their last meeting, at the Dubai World Superseries Finals past year, exacting revenge for her disappointing defeat in Rio de Janeiro. "We were not in the mood to give it away and played long rallies and eventually I came out on top", the Hyderabadi said. Third seed Axelsen took just 36 minutes to edge past Chou 21-13 21-10 to claim his maiden India Open title at the Siri Fort Sports Complex. She opened up a slight lead coming off the momentum of winning the opener but Sung Ji Hyun (pictured) made a 9-1 to put herself in command at the interval and soon had evened the match at a game apiece. In a much-anticipated match of the evening, a replay of Rio Olympics title showdown, the star Indian shuttler came out with a objective and looked determined for a revenge. Sindhu awaits her revenge from Rio 2016 fuego where Carolina Marin outclassed her by 19-21, 21-12, 21-15. In the Rio Olym;pics Carolina had prevailed over Sindhu 19-21.

While the first game was a close affair, the second game belonged to Sindhu as she secured an early four-point lead. Marin struggled against Sindhu's body smashes, but slowly closed the deficit once again with some deft cross-court drops.
