Twitterati laud PV Sindhu for a nerve-wracking game in Dubai BWF Super Series final

PV Sindhu became the second Indian shuttler to bag a silver medal in season-ending tournament after Saina Nehwal (2011) in women singles

India’s star shuttler PV Sindhu lost the Dubai BWF Super Series final to Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi by 21-15, 12-21, 19-21 but everyone was impressed by her spirit in the game. Sindhu missed out on another gold medal as she lost in a nail-biter of a game. The first two sets were clearly one-sided but the third set came right down to the wire with Yamaguchi edging past the Indian Olympic silver-medallist.

Sindhu had to settle for the silver medal in yet another championship after a 1 hour 34 minutes match. Despite Sindhu not being able to bag a gold medal, majority of fans were not disappointed with her. In the stadium and on Twitter, fans lauded Sindhu’s effort.
