PV Sindhu wins gold, BWF World Tour Finals 2018

V Sindhu has well and truly grown! “I have improved a bit [in mental fortitude] because sometimes, couple of times before if I was leading and say she would fight back and take the lead, I would get nervous but now I have been comparatively much more stronger. In that case, I tend to think and lose crucial points,” Sindhu had said after her semi-final win on Saturday. She showed that improved mental strength on Sunday to win gold and bring up her 300th career win.

Nozomi Okuhara was threatening at all times to say the least. She was trying to engage Sindhu in longer rallies, tire her out like she always does but the Indian was up for everything that the Japanese threw at her this time.

Sindhu had three match points in the first game of the final, Okuhara saved two. Sindhu, however, showed nerves of steel and converted the last one.


PV Sindhu achieved three match points once again in the second game and this time, she converted it in the first time of asking. With the win, Sindhu completely rounded off the growth she talked about earlier and became the first Indian to win a title at BWF World Tour Finals.
