This is the first time in a year that Sindhu won two Superseries titles in one season. She has earlier won the India Open Superseries in March. She also reigned supreme at the Syed Modi International Grand Prix Gold in January.

What was interesting to see is how Sindhu outsmarted Okuhara at the net! Her tendency to throw in that backhand volley stunned Okuhara many times and she forced the Japanese to commit mistakes.
