Jakarta: PV Sindhu finished runners-up in the women's singles badminton final in the ongoing Asian Games 2018 after she lost to Chinese Taipei's Tai Tzu Ying in straight games.

The final scoreline read 21-13, 21-16.


As a result, she won the silver medal, whereas Tai cinched gold.

Sindhu came into this match with a poor head-to-head record against Tai, winning just three out of 12 matches. This was Tai's 10th win against Sindhi across all competitions.

Even though Tai had the lead for most of the time, Sindhu fought valiantly in order to keep her dreams alive. Her chances of clinching the second game seemed alive when the score was 4-4, with the scores being level for the first time in the match.

However, in the end, Tai was the better shuttler as she brought glory to her country.

Meanwhile, Sindhu overcame Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi 21-17, 15-21, 21-10 in their last four clash.
