Singhu got off to a great start as she dominated the early exchanges against Yamaguchi. The two-time Olympic medallist went on to seal the first game without much challenge.

The second game started on similar pace as the Indian shuttler Sindhu raced towards a lead of 11-6 at the mid-game break. But the momentum of the world no. 7 was soon broken as she was penalised for not serving sooner. Yamaguchi pounced on the opening and stretched the match into the decider.

The third game was well contolled by Japanese shuttler as she kept her cool in the decider to seal a spot in the summit clash on Sunday.

Sindhu’s first Asian championships medal came in 2014 when she lost to former world No. 1 Wang Shixian of China in the semis. (ANI)
