India’s young badminton star PV Sindhu ensured second Rio Olympic medal for India. In the semifinal against Nozomi Okuhara, the lanky Sindhu used her height well and “jump and smash” to outdone her opponent who clearly had no answer to Sindhu’s aggressive brand of play.

Now, Sindhu today at 7.30 pm (IST) will meet World No. 1 Carolina Marin of Spain in the final to end India’s illusion for a gold medal for the last 13 days.

Sindhu’s semifinal victory came in the wake of wrestler Sakshi Malik’s bronze medal haul.

During Sindhu’s match against Okuhara, coach Pullela Gopichand instructed her to “jump and smash, jump and toss”. Now, Sindhu on her day of final is trending on the top chart on twitter.

Her fans are wishing all the best for the final.

Here are the pre-match twitter reactions:
