Asian Games 2018, Badminton Final Highlights: PV Sindhu’s attempt at creating gold medal history at the Asian Games was denied by Tai Tzu Ying who scripted history of her own. By beating Sindhu 21-13, 21-16, Tai became first shuttler to win gold for Chinese Taipei. However, PV Sindhu ensured India’s best-ever finish in badminton at the Asian Games and history for India with two medals in badminton alongside Saina Nehwal who won the bronze medal on Monday. The win extended Tai Tzu Ying’s head-to-head against PV Sindhu to 10-4.
