PV Sindhu Enters Quarters Of All England Championship

After playing her fourth back-to-back three-game match in this tournament, Sindhu just did not have enough juice left in her by the end of the third game to go all the way.

In a re-match of the epic Glasgow World Championship final, Sindhu saw off Okuhara 20-22, 21-18, 21-18 in the pulsating clash that lasted one hour and 24 minutes.

Yamaguchi conceded later that once she had erased that feeling of winning the match while trailing 7-13 in the final game, her focus was renewed and she started to play good strokes.

With coach Pullela Gopichand repeatedly advising her to play a high-toss game, Sindhu dominated the first game with subtlety and deception.

The Indian shuttler then upped the ante once again in the third game taking a 13-8 lead before Yamaguchi came back to level the game at 14-14. She lost 21-19, 19-21, 18-21 to Akane Yamaguchi.

Yamaguchi will now face world No. 1 and defending champion Tai Tzu-ying of Taiwan in the women's singles final.

Boots up! - Pietersen career seemingly over
Pietersen - England's second-highest run scorer across all forms of the game - posted on Twitter. "Time to move on!". Most talented batter I ever saw, Greater guy, go well as I know you will", Jones' tweet read.

It is at the highest stage of global badminton - against the terrifically talented Japanese who are not just run machines but creative contraptions, that Sindhu's fewer strokes, the last mile left to agility and tactical nous gets highlighted. She leads second game 3-2. But the third seed Indian bounced back in the second game and took a 6-1 lead quickly before going into break at 11-5. "I could have hit it a little more back", Sindhu said after the defeat. "But when the feeling was gone, I could calm myself down quickly without rushing into the point", Yamaguchi told ESPN. She continued to win points as she took the shuttle early.

"Sometimes you lose confidence or get nervous if you start losing points, but you have to let it go and strategize for the next point and be ready for the unexpected", Sindhu was quoted as saying by BWF's official website Friday. Six minutes into the game, Sindhu would be sitting pretty on a 11-5 lead.

11-5 in Sindhu's favour at the break in the first game. But the Japanese did not give up and flicked on a switch that gave the Indian a fight right till the end of the game. Yamaguchi hit one at long and found the net twice as Sindhu lead 14-7.

"Trailing 7-13 in the final game, I nearly accepted defeat".

"It was like the World Championship and Dubai Super Series match, not so long may be but it was not easy to play against Okuhara". But it was closer to the ground, in the low pick ups and desperate retrieves that Yamaguchi was gaining ascendancy with her lower centre of gravity and natural athleticism.
