What a second game that was!

So many momentum shifts....Sindhu went up, then Akane came storming back and then again the lead changed hands and went back to Sindhu.

Akane did compete well but lost her usual precision in the end. And Sindhu didn't blink when she finally got an opportunity. And what a way to win the match point!

Sindhu is definitely looking more energetic and hungry this week in Hong Kong.
