PV Sindhu has been unstoppable at the Rio 2016 Olympics with her sheer superior power and wingspan to reach well placed dropshots to deep returns and that has helped her reach the women’s singles final and will have a go at a historic gold medal. Only one individual has ever won gold for India at the Olympics with Abhinav Bindra getting the yellow metal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. And in the process, PV Sindhu will become the first Indian shuttler to grab a bronze or better to improve on Saina Nehwal’s bronze finish at the London Olympics.

But in her way stands the World No 1 Carolina Marin of Spain who in the past two years has had tremendous success. She won the All England title in 2015, the World Championship in both 2014 and 2015 and this year has won the European Championships. Now she aspires to become the first European to win an Olympic gold and took a giant step towards that when she beat Li Xuerui in straight games – even though the Chinese player had been down with an injury by the latter stages of the competition.
