PV Sindhu loses to Yamaguchi, settles for silver in Indonesia Open

PV Sundhi wins silver in World ChampionshipsPV Sindhu lost the Indonesia Open 2019 women's singles final against Akane Yamaguchi 15-21, 16-21 in 51 minutes at the Istora Gelora Bung Karno in Jakarta on Sunday.

The Hyderabi shuttler, who was contesting her first final of 2019, wasn't at her best while countering Yamaguchi's tactics and made a number of basic errors. Sindhu, who is yet to win a title this year, admitted that it was her mistakes that cost her the gold medal.

"She played well of course and there were long rallies but then I made a few mistakes. In the first set, I was leading by two to three points and I could have continued that but I made a few mistakes and gave her the lead and then she finished off the first game. If I would have won the first game may be it would have been a bit different. Second game I gave her a huge lead and then I had to cover and come back but she finished it off," said Sindhu after the match.
