Sindhu settled for silver at the BWF World Championships after losing the finals in straight games against Carolina Marin of Spain in Nanjing, China.
Marin prevailed over Sindh scoring 21-19, 21-10 to clinch her third world title. Marin had always been Sindhu’s toughest rival on the court.
All through the game, Marin outsmarted the Indian shuttler. Though Sindhu put up a good fight in the first match, she couldn’t maintain it in the second one.
Marin was in good form and missed no chance to gain points against her opponent.
Marin on the other hand, played her semi-final against home favourite He Bingjiao and the Spanish player came from behind to beat the Chinese 13-21, 21-16, 21-13.
