Tokyo Olympics : Sindhu loses in SF, to fight for bronze medal

Rio Olympics silver medallist PV Sindhu lost the women's singles semi-final match 18-21, 12-21 in 40 minutes to Chinese Taipei's Tai Tzu-Ying and failed to make it to the final like the last time. In the first game the Hyderabadi girl had a slender 11-8 lead but the world number one Tai Tzu-Ying made a strong comeback from there and levelled the score at 18-18 and later on she raced away with the first game. In the second game the reigning world champion was no match to her opponent and Tai Tzu-Ying entered her first ever Olympic final appearance. PV Sindhu will now play for the bronze medal against China's He Bingjiao who lost to her Chinese counterpart Chen Yufei in a hard fought 3 game encounter. A disappointment for the entire nation as Sindhu has failed to reach her second consecutive Olympic final but she can still bring smiles to the faces of the Indian fans by winning a bronze medal and for that she will have to beat He Bingjiao of China against whom she trails 6-9 in 15 head-to-head encounters but in their previous encounter Sindhu won 21-19 21-19 in 2019 World Tour final. #PVSindhu #Badminton #Tokyo2020 PV Sindhu Semi final
