Birmingham: Ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu on Friday came back from one game down to beat Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara 20-22, 21-18, 21-18 in the quarterfinals of the All England Championships, thereby advancing to the semifinals.
It was a well-fought contest between the two shuttlers as Sindhu completed yet another promising comeback.
Fellow Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal had earlier been knocked out of the tournament in the first round itself, whereas Kidambi Srikanth too bowed out of the tournament in the pre-quarterfinals.
Earlier, the Indian entered the last eight after outplaying Thailand's Nitchaon Jindapol 21-13, 13-21, 21-18 in over 66 minutes.
While PV Sindhu defeated Okuhara in the final of the BWF Korea Open Super Series in September last year, she had lost to the Japanese shuttler in straight games in the second round of the Japan Open Super Series....
