PV Sindhu vs Carolina Marin H-2-H

Carolina Marin has an overwhelming 10-5 record against the Indian. It is going to be a tricky contest as Sindhu has lost to the world No. 6 in the last four meetings. It hasn’t been exactly smooth sailing for Sindhu in this tournament as she took three games to get rid of her opponents — world No. 28 Kristy Gilmour and world No. 7 Gregoria Mariska Tunjung in the first two rounds.

Katethong tried to make Sindhu move around the court with her push to the back and then drawing her to the net. But Sindhu was up for it and kept at it during the fast-paced rallies. She played some cross-court forehands to good affect. The Indian did miss a couple of points for misjudgement at the backline but that didn’t matter as she grabbed an 11-8 lead with a cross-court smash.

In the second game, Katethong struggled with her length and sprayed the shuttle long and wide as Sindhu was up 5-1. Two precise returns, and a lucky net chord, helped Katethong draw level at 5-5. The Hyderabadi looked more aggressive as she had all the answers to the questions her opponent threw at her. She mixed her half smashes, drives and drops to keep gathering points as Katethong fell into a pool of errors, especially in her pursuit to go for the lines. The result was that the Indian was up 16-10. With the Thai going long again, Sindhu moved to 18-11. She produced a cross-court forehand to gather another point and soon grabbed eight match points.
