This has been a great, great day for Indian badminton after all the early setbacks. Let's hope our two golden girls can keep going further!
...
Final score: Sindhu def Jindapol 21-11, 16-21, 21-14 to enter the semis
...
Sindhu had to do it the hard way. After a blazing start, she lost her way and then found her aggression and power only towards the end, in what was a rollercoaster.
...
Just minutes after Saina ensured a medal for India, that was also the country's first ever women's singles Asiad medal, Sindhu gives the country a second medal!!!!!

What a day!!!!!

For 36 years, we didn't have an individual badminton medal at the Asiad, and now we have two!!!!!
...
Sindhu has DONE IT!!!!!!

It's a second medal for India!!!!!
...
Medal points for Sindhu!

Pure aggression that is!
...
19-13 now for Sindhu
...
And Jindapol struggling to return those high tosses.

Sindhu up 18-13
...
Now Sindhu looking fiery...fully aggressive...using every corner of the court to find a crosscourt smash!

Up 17-13 now
...
And Sindhu has a better body language now. Looking a bit angry, probably feeling the urge to speed up things now.

14-12 to Sindhu
...
And Jindapol helps Sindhu with an error in judgement.

She lets the shuttle go and it lands on the backline!
...
Jindapol says, "Not so fast!"

With a brilliant shot down the line, she makes it 11-13
...
And it is 13-8 to Sindhu now.
...
Jindapol lost balance and sat on the court and Sindhu finished with a winner.

Sindhu is up 12-8
...
Finally one shot that is so Sindhu!

Big smash and it is 11-7 lead for her at the midgame interval.
...
Jindapol aiding in Sindhu's comeback.


...
Sindhu still looking tired but trying to egg herself on.

With a drop that Jindapol can't return, Sindhu is up 9-7
...
Jindapol obliges and keeps sending the shuttle wide!

That has helped Sindhu to come back to 7-7
...
And Sindhu is just trying to hang in there by forcing the Thai to go for errors.


...
Sindhu closed the gap to one point but Jindapol looking more confident currently and has gone up to 6-4
...
Too many unforced errors from Sindhu at the moment....not having clarity in her thoughts.

4-2 to Jindapol
...
Can Sindhu find her spark back?
...
They are tied at 2-2 in the initial stages of the decider.
...
Suddenly Sindhu has lost her sharpness. This is very much reminiscent of her opening round match here, where she survived a scare.
...
And Jindapol gets the job done!

Second game goes to her at 21-16.
...
Game points for the Thai!

20-16
...
And Sindhu showing a bit of tiredness now.

19-16 for the Thai
...
Oh wow! Jindapol jumps to find a beautiful crosscourt shot!

Again she has the momentum!

Up 18-16
...
And Sindhu screams!

She has made it 16-16
...
And, with a crosscourt shot, Sindhu now trails 15-16
...
The Thai makes a service error and it is 16-14 now
...
And 16-13 it is for Jindapol!
...
And Sindhu sends the shuttle wide!

A few errors are creeping into her game!

Jindapol is building a lead now!

Up 15-13
...
And once more, they are all level at 13-13
...
A great rally ends with a big smash by Sindhu
...
And suddenly we have a competitive game here!

12-12
...
And Jindapol makes a strong start after the break.

With a few tight drops, which Sindhu was unable to reach, she makes it 11-11
...
And, with a body smash, Sindhu goes into an 11-8 lead at the midgame interval.
...
Jindapol snatched the lead to go up to 8-7 but Sindhu has once again marched ahead to 9-8  
...
And that has emboldened the Thai.

Going for down the line shots to surprise Sindhu

7-7
...
And Jindapol is now slowly inching her way back after Sindhu made a couple of unforced errors.

7-5 to Sindhu
...
Sindhu has now regrouped and is attacking well, forcing Jindapol to make errors.

Sindhu up 6-3 
...
And, right after that, Sindhu makes a few errors at the net.

3-3
...
Sindhu is in no mood to relent.

She wants to reach the semis fast!

Up 3-0 in the second game
...
Sindhu converts on her second game point to bag the first game 21-11


Total domination since 5-5
...
The points are coming fast and furious for Sindhu as she has now upped the intensity.

19-10
...
And with a huge, huge smash, Sindhu progresses further to 17-10
...
The last few points have all gone Sindhu's way!

She now leads 15-9
...
It's all business for Sindhu now...once she managed to grab the lead, all she has to do now is to steadily keep building on it.

And that is exactly what she is doing.




Now up 13-8
