PV Sindhu defeated in Hong Kong Super Series final

Sindhu eases into Hong Kong Open semis

Sindhu fought hard but could not find her range of strokes in an error-prone display to lose the final with a final scoreline of 21-18, 21-18 against the Taiwan based shuttler.

Sindhu had been hopeful she would change the result from the 2016 Hong Kong Open and get the best of Tai this year, saying on Saturday: "I think my level is about 90 to 100 percent and I am confident". She holds a 7-3 head-to-head advantage against the Indian shuttler. Sindhu clawed back at 18-18. She had lost to Japan's Nozomi Okuhara at the World Championship final, while clinched two titles at India and Korea this year. Tai Tzu racing ahead now.

In the second game, Sindhu fell behind early but fought back to 4-4 and 7-7.

But after the break, Tai Tzu upped the ante and turned the heat on Sindhu, who had spent a lot of energy in containing the Taiwanese. It is a fine win considering the Thai was seeded number six.

World No.3 Sindhu managed to close the gap with a couple of aggressive smashes but the defending champion maintained her composure to take a three-point lead.

Marcus Fernaldi Gideon and Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo win the men's doubles title.

Top seeded China's Chen Qingchen and Jia Yifan defeated Indonesia's Greysia Polii and Apriyani Rahayu 14-21, 21-16, 21-15 in the women's doubles final.

The last few points saw a see-saw battle between the duo but it was Sindhu who proved superior and bagged the match to advance.
