What a clinical performance that was from Sindhu! Revenge was clearly on her mind and she came fully prepared! She did not repeat the mistakes she made last week at the Denmark Open Superseries.

The backhand that she has newly added to her repertoire of shots, was a weapon in the initial part of the match as she repeatedly twisted and turned the teenager to put her out of place. Sindhu was lethal at the forecourt today and her net game was a treat to watch. Granted that Chen was way off her game today, she could not do anything even when she had the lead in the second game. And later on, she just became clueless in front of the Sindhu barrage.
