Jakarta sources reported that Star Indian shuttler P.V. Sindhu created history as she stormed into the women's single badminton final at the 2018 Asian Games here on Monday but her compatriot Saina Nehwal had to settle for a bronze. Meanwhile after defeating World No.2 Akane Yagamuchi of Japan 21-17, 15-21, 21-10 in the semis, the 23 year old became the first Indian shuttler to reach the final of badminton singles competition at the Asiad.



Accordingly Sindhu will now face Taiwan's Tai Tzu Ying on Tuesday. Further Nehwal had to settle for bronze after suffering a 21-17, 21-14 defeat in the semis and the 28 year old bronze is the first individual badminton medal at the Asiad for India in 36 years.

Moreover the clash between Sindhu and Yagamuchi was a hard-fought, edge of the seat affair and the score line read 6-6 in the first game before Sindhu started to attack Yagamuchi's forehand to take a 11-8 lead at the break. Further the Indian further extended her lead to 17-12 but three consecutive points by Yamaguchi bought the Japanese back into the contest. Sindhu however, maintained her dominance and sealed the first game in 22 minutes.
