PV Sindhu wins the opening game, Kidambi Srikanth loses

BWF Super Series PV Sindhu beat Yamaguchi

BWF Super Series PV Sindhu beat Yamaguchi

World No. 3 Sindhu took just 36 minutes to outplay Sayaka Sato of Japan 21-13 21-12 and register her second straight win at the Dollars 1 million event. Whoever between Axelsen and Chou wins today, will advance to the knockouts as the second player from Group "B" after Shi Yuqi. The victor of the Sindhu-Yamaguchi match will, however, finish at the top of the group.

Rio Olympic silver medallist P V Sindhu and fit again Kidambi Srikanth will kickstart their campaign for the season-ending Dubai Super Series Finals on Wednesday.

Even after the break, Sindhu never let Yamaguchi back in the game as she took the Japanese apart with her smart all-court play. The Japanese was effected by a series of unforced errors as she sent the shuttle flying wide and long. A similar start to the second game, domination from the Indian.

Sindhu tapped and smashed and coupled with Yamaguchi's errors, the Indian raced to an 11-1 lead at the break within five minutes of the match. Srikanth started off in brilliant fashion, leading the Dan 10-7 at one point, but soon after the break, Axelsen cruised past Srikanth in no time and registered the first game to his kitty.

He, however, began the second game on the same note he ended the opening game with.

Sindhu took the lead at the interval and post it, she was unstoppable not giving Sato any chance for a comeback. A favourable video referral and a miscued shot by a stretched Sindhu gave a couple of points to the Japanese before Sindhu unleashed a roaring smash. The Indian capitalised by a cross court drop, reaching 18-12.

The other two players in the Group A of women's singles event are world number 15, Sayako Sato of Japan, and world number two Akane Yamaguchi of Japan.

Srikanth's second loss in the ongoing tournament has put him out of contention for the semi-finals, even if he grabs a win on Friday.

It turned out to be an anti-climax for Srikanth, who became the first Indian to win four Super Series title this season.
