This is the first time that Sindhu has done wonders to win a gold medal in the Commonwealth in women’s singles. Apart from this, Sindhu won a gold medal in the mixed team event of the 2018 Commonwealth Games, she also won a bronze medal in the women’s singles at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
This is Sindhu’s ninth win in 11 matches against Michelle. This is Sindhu’s third individual medal at the Commonwealth Games. He also won a silver medal at the 2018 Gold Coast Games. Sindhu was also part of the silver medal winning Indian mixed team in the ongoing Games, which lost to Malaysia in the final. In the final, Sindhu’s left leg was bandaged, which affected her movement to some extent and it also affected her performance.
He gave Mitchell a chance to score easy points on a few occasions. Sindhu did well in the rally and her drop shots were also strong. Mitchell made very simple mistakes, for which he had to bear the brunt. This is India’s fourth medal in the badminton competition of the Birmingham Games. Earlier, Kidambi Srikanth won the men’s singles while the mixed team pair of Trisha Jolly and Gayatri Gopchand won bronze medals in the women’s doubles, apart from the mixed team silver.
