16:53 (IST)27 APR 2018

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!

16:51 (IST)27 APR 2018

AND SUNG WINS THE MATCH!!!!!

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


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

16:20 (IST)27 APR 2018

AND THE INDIAN ADDS TWO MORE POINTS TO GET TO 14-10

16:19 (IST)27 APR 2018

It's 12-10 to Sindhu now as she manages to maintain her two-point advantage over the former World no. 2
