Thailand Open Super 500 finals: PV Sindhu loses to Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara
Written by Abhishek Rana

PV Sindhu had to settle for a second place, as Nozomi Okuhara beat her in the finals of Thailand Open Super 500 at Nimibutr Stadium in Bangkok . The scores at the end of the game were 15-21, 18-21. She had a bad beginning, having wiped out in the first game in a matter of 20 minutes, while she did have a stronger comeback, but it wasn’t enough to keep her in the competition as she made too many irreversible errors. Nozomi was just too oppressive and aggressive in the game to have been countered by Sindhu’s admirable, and forceful attempts in the second game.

The game ended when Sindhu smashed the shuttle straight into the net, basically serving Nozomi with the win. But, before that, the two were locked into a furious battle, exchanging the blow to the shuttle with such speed that the audience looked on in shock as the shuttle flew from all sides of the court.

But, even as she lost the game, PV Sindhu has still shown that she is one of the best badminton players in the world, still perched at the top five of the best in the sports from all around the globe. And, with this show of spirit and energy, PV Sindhu has proven that she’s not someone to be underestimated even if the game is going against her and the opponent is too powerful. She really did give a strong competition to Nozomi, even going as far as to making toeing the score, 18 each. But, losing a game is not an end to anything and we’re sure PV Sindhu is going to triumph again, as she has so many times before.
