PV Sindhu ended 2018 on a high note as she defeats 2017 world champion Nozomi Okuhara to clinch gold at BWF World tour finals.
This victory was very important because she hadn’t had the brightest of luck in the finals as she won gold today after seven straight final losses. She won two straight games with a marvellously crafted 21-19, 21-17 victory.
She had lost at this very stage last year when she was up against another Japanese – Akane Yamaguchi, but today was her day clearly evident from the joyous scream when she laid her hands on the gold medal.
Twitteratis couldn’t stop congratulating Sindhu on her dominant victory, here are the best reactions:
PV Sindhu's big tournament finals:
Silver 2016 Olympics
Silver 2017 World Championships
Silver 2017 Super Series Finals
Silver 2018 Commonwealth Games
Silver 2018 World Championships
Silver 2018 Asian Games
GOLD 2018 World Tour Finals
WELL DONE AND WELL DESERVED!!!
