Tokyo Olympics: PV Sindhu loses semi-final against World No 1 Tai Tzu Ying

Indian star player PV Sindhu lost to the second seed and the World No 1 Chinese Taipei's Tai Tzu Ying in two straight sets in the semi-final of the women's singles of Badminton in the ongoing Tokyo Olympics. Tzu Ying was just too good for Sindhu on the day, defeating her 21-18, 21-12.

Thereby she was out of the gold medal contention and will now play in the Bronze medal match on Sunday.

Sindhu was her athletic self, but Tzu Ying attacked Sindhu on her strength, ie., power game and dumbed it down and ran her around the court and Sindhu just had no answer to Taipei star's game.

The first game was pretty close as Sindhu matcher her shot for shot and was proving to be a mouthwatering and well-fought set as she would score one point and her opponent would score another, it was going well till 16-16 but Tzu Ying ended up taking the first game.

The second set was all Tzu Ying despite Sindhu's strong start. There was a point her or two there, but Tzu Ying was just relentless in her pursuit and despite Sindhu's best efforts, she lost the game 12-21 and was out of the gold medal contention.

The match lasted 40 minutes and now Sindhu will face China's He Bing Jio for the bronze medal.
