PV Sindhu breaks the final jinx

Two years after being robbed of the gold by Okuhara in an epic 110-minute final at Glasgow that went down as one of the greatest battles in badminton history. Sindhu finally exorcised the ghost of that heart-wrenching loss with a completely dominating win over the same opponent. Prior to her World Championships medal 2019, she has won two successive silvers and a couple of bronze medals. Sindhu has also won Olympic silver in 2016 Rio Games, silver at Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, an Asian Games silver at Jakarta and the BWF World Tour Finals last year.
