PV Sindhu Trumps Carolina Marin To Clinch Maiden India Open Crown
An impeccable performance from PV Sindhu helped her win a maiden women's singles title at the $325,000 India Open Superseries in New Delhi on Sunday. The 21-year-old came out with her best game to defeat reigning Olympic and World Champion Carolina Marin of Spain 21-19, 21-16 in 47 minutes in the final. This was the Hyderabadi's second successive victory over the top seed since Sindhu's loss to Carolina in the famous 2016 Rio Olympics final. Sindhu had also beaten Carolina in the Dubai World Superseries Finals in December 2016. However, this was the Olympic silver medallist Sindhu's second Superseries title after also winning the China Open in November 2016.
