That's it from us! Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for all the latest updates from the Badminton Asia Championships throughout the day!
...
Sindhu had a bronze medal in 2014 and was hoping to add to that.

But wasn't able to find the goods today! Sung was just way too accurate and Sindhu probably did not have the energy needed to counter her game after her CWG exploits!
...
AND SUNG WINS THE MATCH!!!!!

21-19, 21-10 IN 44 MINUTES!!!


THAT IS THE END OF PV SINDHU'S MEDAL HOPES!!!!

Needless to say, Sindhu is in a difficult position...if she can't get a few points quickly right after the break, it will become an uphill task for her.

It's 11-7 to Sung heading into the mid-game interval.
...
The fightback from PV Sindhu continues!

She now trails 7-9

Wow! Sindhu had a lead at one stage of the match in Game 1 and now things are not looking very good for her
...
Sindhu loses four points on the trot to send Sung up to 5-1
...
It's 1-1 in Game 2
...
From 15-11 to 19-21

That was a roller-coaster from PV Sindhu!

Can she make amends in Game 2?

Sung cut down Sindhu's lead to three points now by playing some quality shots!

13-16 she trails
...
It's 15-11 to the India No. 1

...
AND THE INDIAN ADDS TWO MORE POINTS TO GET TO 14-10
...
It's 12-10 to Sindhu now as she manages to maintain her two-point advantage over the former World no. 2
...
For the moment, it looks like she has settled into this match. But Sung is a veteran and has four wins over the Indian, so Sindhu cannot to relax.
