Shall we be able to see a spectacular turnaround from the Indian? Time, however, is running out and Sindhu needs to hurry if she wants a win here!

The five-point gap continues even after the break and Sindhu now trails 7-12

...

Is there any hint of tiredness from the Indian? Remember, she has been playing non-stop for 2 weeks in a row and is on a seven-match winning streak!

...

Currently, she needs to be reminded about her fiery spirit and courage as she is trailing 6-11 at half-time.

Game 3

The Indian starts with an aggressive mindset and builds a 3-1 lead

...

WHAT Sindhu  needs to do?

She has to widen the gap between her and Liang right from the start of the decider.

...

And she INDEED is!!!! What a spirited show from the Singaporean to snatch the second game, 23-21

...

And in a repeat, it is Liang yet again with a third game point at 22-21. Can she be third time lucky?

And the Singaporean even has a game point at 20-19

...

And just like before, the resilient Liang comes back for 19-19

...

Sindhu's improved defense is shining bright here. Under the gun, she eked out a hard-fought point to go up 19-18.

...

This is the business end of the game and the Indian needs to be careful not to leak any error. 

...

Her persistence pays off and the game is back on level terms at 18-18

...

But Liang has not given up and she keeps cutting down the Indian's lead. She is now trailing 16-18.

...

Sindhu keeps on soaring higher and higher. With tremendous footwork and admirable fighting spirit, she has created quite a gap between her and  Liang at 17-13

...

But this is where the China Open champion is looking good. Confident and aggressive, she has broken free from the tie to surge ahead 15-12

The game continues in the same fashion even after the break. Sindhu went up 12-10 but the Singaporean once more erased her advantage to tie the score 12-12

...

At the mid-game interval, the lead goes back to PV Sindhu at 11-10, who came back from 9-10 down to take the next couple of points.
