Yin really is trying hard and her hard work is indeed paying off. She has made it just a one-point gap as she trails Sindhu, 9-10.

That was SOME domination from the Indian shuttler!

...

Sindhu takes the first game, 21-9

This is absolutely a one-way traffic as Sindhu is into her groove now. On resumption, the Indian is totally dominating the proceedings and has jumped to 19-8..which means she has taken 8 out of the last 9 points now!!!!

...

Sindhu has now taken a slender lead as well, 8-7.

...

After going down 3-6, the Indian is trying to make her aggressive game bring her back into the game. And her efforts are successful as she levels at 6-6.

...

But Yin is starting to make her mark now and has taken four straight points to lead 5-2.

...

The match has begun and the early exchanges are hard-fought. Currently, they are locked at 2-2.
