All Indian medallists at World Badminton Championships

All Indian medallists at World Badminton Championships

The 22-year-old Sindhu notched up a straight-game (21-13 21-10) win over World No. 10 Chen in the women's singles semifinals last night, to assure India of at least a silver medal from her after compatriot Saina Nehwal had to settle for a bronze.

It was the reversal of fortunes exactly after a year.

For India, it still is a historic edition since for the first time the country's shuttlers are returning with two medals. Sindhu then won a point by pushing the shuttle at the back of the court.

Sindhu made her first final appearance in the World Championship on Sunday.

The Rio Olympics siler medallist, assured herself of at least a bronze with a clinical display against World No. 6 Chinese Sun Yu. This time she would dearly be hoping she goes the distance.

The Indian was sacked up now. There will be a debrief for the match with her coaches and she will get a chance to dispassionately analyse her own performance in her mind. The highest number of rally was 73 shots in the second game, the point that gave Sindhu a comeback and pushed the match into a decider.

Struggling physically in the last game, Sindhu started lose, giving the lead to the Japanese. In the next point, Okuhara produced a consummate finish with deception on a push down the line, on the forehand side to take the game to 14-7 before taking a ten-point lead at 17-7. But Sindhu pushed the limit and got a yellow card as warning from the umpire. At the end of it all, both players were on their knees, completely exhausted and took a long pause to lift themselves to their feet. So close was the contest that of the 124 points played, Sindhu won 61 while Nozomi took 63. Here's a look at all the Indian medallists at the World Badminton Championships. Okuhara had defeated India's Saina Nehwal to reach the finals of the Championship.

Okuhara became the first Japanese to make it to the final of the World Championships after the match, which lasted for 1 minute 14 seconds.
