Interestingly, PV Sindhu wrapped the match within an hour and half and didn’t let the match move to third round. The Spaniard looked helpless in front of PV Sindhu. Sindhu’s determination to win India Open Super Series 2017 women’s singles tournament in straight games was evident from the very first match in this championship. She beat top athletes like Sung Ji Hyun and her compatriot Saina Nehwal before storming into a blockbuster finale against Marin.

Today, PV Sindhu defeated Carolina Marin 21-19, 21-16 to win the India Open Super Series 2017 championship as well as grabbing the whooping grand prize of 325,000 USD. PV Sindhu’s astonishing performance in front of her jam-packed crowds at Siri Fort Complex in New Delhi was a great Sunday bonanza for her fans from all across the country.

With this victory, Sindhu has now accomplished two super series titles to her credit; China Open title 2016 and India Open Super Series 2017. The ace shuttler also achieved her eighth career win against the former World No. 1. The 21-year-old won the final match comprehensively with an unassailable two set wins which literally denied Marin to compete for the third round.

Both the players worked hard and did everything possible to put up a strong fight. However, Sindhu’s awe-inspiring form and astute defense made the Marin’s shots literally futile at today’s match. The Olympic silver medalist looked aggressive and well-focused from the very start in first round itself.

The first round came very close when the set moved to 18-17 but before Marin could consolidate the game, it was Sindhu who kept on creating pressure on her with some spectacular shots. Once she won the first round 21-19, there was no looking back for the super Sindhu.

Sindhu did the unimaginable at India Open Super Series Final

The Indian shuttler than took advantage of her height to counter Marin’s smash hits in the second round. Then she strengthened her position by climbing to 21 points too soon leaving Marin far behind at 16. One final big forehand smash from Sindhu finally concluded the match with her fourth consecutive victories in the India Open tournament. The entire stadium was dumbfounded with clapping and standing ovation for the victorious PV Sindhu.

Revenge taken! PV Sindhu lost to the Spaniard in the Olympics final. And now she has beaten Marin to India Open Super Series title. A perfect climax though Carolina Marin still ranked higher to PV Sindhu at world’s women’s single ranking in Badminton.

Now, Sindhu has become only the second Indian woman athlete after Saina to win India Open. Saina Nehwal has previously won India Open tournament twice in 2010 and 2015 respectively.
