  • Hong Kong Super Series PV Sindhu loses to Tai Tzu Ying in a one sided final

PV Sindhu won the Hong Kong Super Series semifinal against Ratchanok Intanon to book final clash against Tai Tzu Ying.

The Rio Olympics silver medallist will face Ratchanok Intanon in the last-four round.

On the other hand, World No.6 Ratchanok has never reached the final here, her best performance being the semis in 2015, while Sindhu finished runner-up in the tournament a year ago as she lost the summit clash in straight games to Tai Tzu-ying of Chinese Taipei.

World No 1 Tai has won the last three meetings between them, including two this year.

Sindhu has now reached third final in the Superseries meets for the year.

Andre Ellington: Houston Texans claim veteran RB from Arizona Cardinals
Although the Texans went 3-3 in his six starts, Watson threw for 1,699 yards and 19 touchdowns against only eight interceptions. When cousins Andre Ellington and Bruce Ellington were high-school football stars growing up in SC , they were teammates.

However, Sindhu was in control against Ratchanok.

Earlier, Sindhu defeated Aya Ohori of Japan 21-14, 21-17 in 39 minutes to enter the third round on Thursday. Sixth seed Ratchanok's deceptive shots at the net proved ineffective as Sindhu tackled them easily, often catching the Thai girl with a drop or loft.

Satisfied with her performance, coach Pullela Gopichand said that Sindhu played a smart game on Saturday. The rallies got longer towards the end of the match.

At one point, in the second game, Sindhu was trailing but soon the Indian shuttler bounced back in style and matched the pace of her opponent.
