Sindhu's shape has considerably improved and she is finer form than ever. Her dicey quarter-final clash against old rival Tai Tzu Ying gave her the much-needed impetus and propelled her forward. The world number two from Chinese Taipei gave Sindhu a hard time in the quarters and stretched it over three elaborate games of 12-21, 23-21, 21-19. Sindhu's meteoric ascent in form during that match was proof enough that she was eyeing the finals. The semi-final match was a cakewalk compared to what went down in the earlier match.

However, the looming challenge now lies as Sindhu has set up a date with former BWF World Championships gold medalist, Nozomi Okuhara.

Nozomi Okuhara, in her semi-final match had to go the distance before she could earn herself a berth in the finals in her conquest to win a second gold medal. In a match that lasted 1 hour 23 minutes, Okuhara had to fight off the gritty Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand.

Faced with a familiar opponent, Okuhara would look to play an attacking game but considering Sindhu's form it will be difficult for the Japanese to get away with the match a second time.
