World Number 11 PV Sindhu successfully defended her crown at the Macau Open by winning the 2014 women’s singles finals by defeating South Korea’s Hyo Min Kim in straight sets 21-12 21-17. With this win, Sindhu won her first Gold Medal in 2014, which was a rather disappointing career in her standards.

It was Kim, who had Sindhu on her toes in the beginning of the second game. She looked pumped up after losing the first game and looked threatening to take the match to a decider. After matching her Indian opponent to each and every point, the Korean failed to handle the pressure in the later stages second game. After racing to 16-17 from 13-17, Kim simply threw the game away handing Sindhu the title. It was a fierce battle that had some long rallies, powerful smashes with some accurate placements.

Earlier in the match, Sindhu struggled as Kim started off well with some good attacking badminton. But it was the lanky Indian who set herself in before launching a counter attack against the Korean. Kim had no answers for Sindhu’s smashes as Sindhu kept on dealing with smashes before pocketing the first game 21-12. With this victory, Sindhu is expected to break into the top 10 of the World rankings.
