PV Sindhu’s hopes of winning her first World Championships gold medal faced a familiar roadblock, which goes by the name of Carolina Marin. The Spaniard absolutely dominated over her opponent in the second game, to win her third World Championships gold. Sindhu started off strongly, leading by 14-11 in the first game at one stage. But a lapse in concentration saw her losing five points on the trot, and eventually giving away five points in the trot. From there on, the match completely shifted momentum, as Marin just pounced on every opportunity to push for a win. Sindhu lost 21-19, 21-10 in the final and had to settle for a silver medal for the second straight time in World Championships.

PV SINDHU LOSES FIRST GAME 21-19 AGAINST CAROLINA MARIN! 

Excellent drop shot from the Spaniard ends the drama in a disappointment for Indian. She was leading 14-11 at one stage, and then went on to lose the game by 21-19. There were three times when Sindhu stopped the rally after the serve and has received a warning as well from the referee. Much for Sindhu to do in the second game.
