PV Sindhu's quest for gold at the Olympic Games ended on Saturday when she suffered a defeat at the hands of Tai Tzu-ying in the semi-final.
The Indian shuttler, however, has a chance to make it two medals in two games as she takes on China's He Bing Jiao in the bronze medal match. Sindhu had won the silver in Rio in 2016 after losing to Spain's Carolina Marin 19-21, 21-12, 21-15 in a gruelling encounter.
In the semis against Tai in Tokyo, Sindhu was overpowered by the Taiwan shuttler as she lost 21-18, 21-12. Sindhu had started well and was leading 11-8 at the break in Game 1 but then Tai bounced back strongly to take the first game and then continued her momentum in the second game to reign supreme.
He Bing Jiao on the other hand went down fighting to Chen Yu Fei in the other semi-final. In a match that lasted 79 minutes, Chen overcame her Chinese counterpart 2-1 to make it to the finals.
