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

15:00 (IST)26 AUG 2018

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.

14:56 (IST)26 AUG 2018

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!!!!!

14:54 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Sindhu has DONE IT!!!!!!

It's a second medal for India!!!!!

14:52 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Medal points for Sindhu!

Pure aggression that is!

14:52 (IST)26 AUG 2018

19-13 now for Sindhu

14:51 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And Jindapol struggling to return those high tosses.

Sindhu up 18-13

14:50 (IST)26 AUG 2018

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

Up 17-13 now

14:49 (IST)26 AUG 2018

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

14:48 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And Jindapol helps Sindhu with an error in judgement.

She lets the shuttle go and it lands on the backline!

14:47 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Jindapol says, "Not so fast!"

With a brilliant shot down the line, she makes it 11-13

14:45 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And it is 13-8 to Sindhu now.

14:45 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Jindapol lost balance and sat on the court and Sindhu finished with a winner.

Sindhu is up 12-8

14:43 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Finally one shot that is so Sindhu!

Big smash and it is 11-7 lead for her at the midgame interval.

14:42 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Jindapol aiding in Sindhu's comeback.

14:41 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Sindhu still looking tired but trying to egg herself on.

With a drop that Jindapol can't return, Sindhu is up 9-7

14:40 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Jindapol obliges and keeps sending the shuttle wide!

That has helped Sindhu to come back to 7-7

14:39 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And Sindhu is just trying to hang in there by forcing the Thai to go for errors.

14:38 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Sindhu closed the gap to one point but Jindapol looking more confident currently and has gone up to 6-4

14:36 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Too many unforced errors from Sindhu at the moment....not having clarity in her thoughts.

4-2 to Jindapol

14:34 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Can Sindhu find her spark back?

14:34 (IST)26 AUG 2018

They are tied at 2-2 in the initial stages of the decider.

14:31 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Suddenly Sindhu has lost her sharpness. This is very much reminiscent of her opening round match here, where she survived a scare.

14:30 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And Jindapol gets the job done!

Second game goes to her at 21-16.

14:29 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Game points for the Thai!


14:29 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And Sindhu showing a bit of tiredness now.

19-16 for the Thai

14:28 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Oh wow! Jindapol jumps to find a beautiful crosscourt shot!

Again she has the momentum!

Up 18-16

14:27 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And Sindhu screams!

She has made it 16-16

14:27 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And, with a crosscourt shot, Sindhu now trails 15-16

14:26 (IST)26 AUG 2018

The Thai makes a service error and it is 16-14 now

14:26 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And 16-13 it is for Jindapol!

14:26 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And Sindhu sends the shuttle wide!

A few errors are creeping into her game!

Jindapol is building a lead now!

Up 15-13

14:24 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And once more, they are all level at 13-13

14:23 (IST)26 AUG 2018

A great rally ends with a big smash by Sindhu

14:23 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And suddenly we have a competitive game here!


14:22 (IST)26 AUG 2018

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

14:20 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And, with a body smash, Sindhu goes into an 11-8 lead at the midgame interval.

14:18 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Jindapol snatched the lead to go up to 8-7 but Sindhu has once again marched ahead to 9-8  

14:15 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And that has emboldened the Thai.

Going for down the line shots to surprise Sindhu


14:15 (IST)26 AUG 2018

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

7-5 to Sindhu

14:13 (IST)26 AUG 2018

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

Sindhu up 6-3 

14:11 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And, right after that, Sindhu makes a few errors at the net.


14:10 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Sindhu is in no mood to relent.

She wants to reach the semis fast!

Up 3-0 in the second game

14:07 (IST)26 AUG 2018

Sindhu converts on her second game point to bag the first game 21-11

Total domination since 5-5

14:06 (IST)26 AUG 2018

The points are coming fast and furious for Sindhu as she has now upped the intensity.


14:05 (IST)26 AUG 2018

And with a huge, huge smash, Sindhu progresses further to 17-10

14:03 (IST)26 AUG 2018

The last few points have all gone Sindhu's way!

She now leads 15-9

14:02 (IST)26 AUG 2018

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
