PV Sindhu surrenders to world no. 1

Sports News, June 23:- In a major blow, Rio-Olympic silver-medallist PV Sindhu was knocked out of the Australian Open Super Series after going down against Chinese Taipei’s Tai Tzu Ying in the quarter-finals of the women’s singles event on Friday.

The fifth-seed made a spectacular start to her last-eight clash, leading Tzu Ying 21-16 after the first game.

However, Sindhu failed to continue the momentum and went down to suffer a 21- 10, 20-22, 16-21 defeat against the World No.1 that lasted for one hour.

In another women’s singles clash, India’s Saina Nehwal will look to book her place in the semi-finals when she takes on sixth-seed Sun Yu later today.
