Sindhu came onto the court after winning a hard-fought battle against Thailand’s Phittayaporn Chaiwan. She began her proceedings on a high note, winning the first game 21-13.

Meanwhile, she failed to repeat her first game performance and her opponent, Tzu Ying, got a comfortable lead of 11-3. The Indian shuttler was clueless against some fantastic displays of badminton on the court by her Taiwanese counterpart. Tzu Ying came back strongly and secured the second game, 21-15.

In the deciding  game, Sindhu had a chance at one point to provide a stiff challenge as the score reached 13-16. A thrilling finish was on the cards. But Tzu Ying outclassed her Indian nemesis and wrapped up the match 21-13, confirming her berth in the semifinals.

It was Sindhu’s six straight defeats against Tzu Ying, as the former World No.1 has a psychological advantage over Indian shuttler because, in head-to-head count, the Taiwanese  holds a 16-5 record against the ace Indian badminton star.

The pathetic display of Sidhu continues on the badminton court. She has not been able to emerge victorious in most of the tournaments. A shuttler must be consistent in his or her performance to win any tournament in a competitive environment. Sindhu lacks aggression. She plays well but in patches, which is not enough to win a tournament.
