Mamata congratulates PV Sindhu on winning Korea Open Super Series title

"Overall it was a good match and even she played very well", Sindhu said exclusively to India Today.

This is Sindhu's 3rd Super Series title. The win didn't come easy for Sindhu as Okuhara fought right to the end in an exhilarating match that was nearly a replica of the World Championships encounter, with a reverse result. However Bingjiao picked up in the second game taking it on Sindhu with 17-21. Okuhara fought back and equalized at the seven-point mark, firing some delectable drop shots.

This win from Sindhu is bound to inspire youngsters to take to the game.

PV Sindhu approached Set 2 strategically as she did not wade into battle everytime Okuhara blew the bugle. But Sindhu ended the momentum with a crisp victor. But post the changeover, Sindhu came up with a different strategy, playing crosscourt smashes and hitting long shots that helped her level the score at 12-12. The Rio encounter was the only match that ended in straight games with Sindhu entering the famed final.

The 22-20, 11-21, 21-18 scoreline secured Sindhu's third Superseries title in the course of the past year, behind the 2016 China Open and 2017 India Open; and made her richer by US$45,000.

In the second game, Okuhara stepped up her game and went for the attack straightaway. Sindhu bounced back to win the third and title. The Indian shuttler then defeated Thailand's Nitchaon Jindapol in a closely-contested 22-20, 21-17 second round match.

A six-point advantage for Sindhu at the mid-game break meant Okuhara was left with a mountain to climb. Okuhara then displayed improved net play to win two points to take the match to a decider.

Sameer, meanwhile, lost to South Korean top seed Son Wan Ho 22-20, 10-21, 13-21 in an hour and nine minutes.
