Hardly a surprise. We're still basically useless at doubles, except for the odd flashes in the pan. At one time we were only good in WS. Now we're primarily good in MS, and to a slightly lesser extend in WS since we only have 2 WS players in the top 20, whereas we have 4 (!!) men in the MS top 20.

Srikanth lost his quarterfinal but Sindhu guarantees at least one medal . Saina could make it two . Sindhu has an easier semifinal . If Saina wins, she's up against Spanish screamer Carolina Marin, who beat Sindhu in the final at Rio 2016. Sindhu spanked her world #5 Chinese opponent Sun Yu 21-14 21-9

And Saina wins her quarterfinal too. Marin lost to Okuhara! So the semifinal pairups are Sindhu vs Chinese newcomer Chen Yufei, and Saina against Okuhara. Both have a good chance of winning their respective semifinals. It would be a dream final if the two of them manage to contest it. Sindhu already has her third world championship medal (2 bronzes earlier) and can make it silver or gold this time. Saina has a previous silver, having lost the 2015 final to Marin.

Turns out Indian women have won medals in every world or Olympic event since 2011:
2011 - Gutta/Ponappa bronze
2012 - Saina Olympic bronze
2013 - Sindhu bronze
2014 - Sindhu bronze
2015 - Saina silver
2016 - Sindhu Olympic silver
2017 - minimum 2 bronze

Saina Nehwal gets Bronze!

Saina Nehwal’s impressive run at the World Championship came to an end after a heart-breaking loss against Rio Olympics bronze medallist Nozomi Okuhara of Japan in the women's singles semi-finals in Glasgow on Saturday.

Final was expected. Okuhara is too strong for Saina now, but I didnt expect Sindhu to destroy her opponent this badly. Go for gold! She could become the first Indian world champ in badminton ever.

Okuhara beat Saina Nehwal with a scoreline of 12-21, 21-17, 21-10. So one bronze and 1 silver guaranteed. Let us hope Sindhu gets the GOLD!!!

Saina is coming back from complex knee surgery and is not yet fully fit. She said so herself. Making the medal round again despite that is a great achievement. She has clearly been working hard and no longer has extra pounds of weight.

Sindhu is at another level. Tomorrow's her chance to assert herself as the first world champion from India. She bear Okuhara in the semifinal at Rio 2016. For the past three years, an Indian woman has made the final of the world title event - Saina in the 2015 WC (lost to Marin) and Sindhu in 2016 Olympics (also lost to Marin). Now's Sindhu's chance to be the winner.

Interestingly, both Chinese women Sindhu beat the last two rounds are coached by the legendary Zhang Ning, the 2004 and 2008 women's Olympic champion.

Never before India had seen its player reach the Olympics and World Championships finals but on Saturday, PV Sindhu did it. The Hyderabad girl became the first Indian badminton player to reach the final of both those tournaments after she completed a dominating 21-13 21-10 win over China’s Chen Yufei in the semi-finals of World Badminton Championships in Glasgow on Saturday.

Sindhu dominated the match with her attacking plays with some jump smashes. She continued top quality badminton and made it a no match after winning the first game 21-13. She destroyed the Chinese in the second game to avenge her loss from the Malaysia Open earlier this year.

It could have been an all-Indian final in Glasgow but Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara defeated India’s Saina Nehwal 12-21, 21-17, 21-11 in the other semi-final earlier in the day.

Sindhu used her backhand drops to a great affect in the first game and she took an 11-8 lead. Chen, trying hard to remain in the game, failed to match the pace of Sindhu and eventually played some erratic shots which cost her some points.

It took Sindhu 22 minutes to wrap up the first game against Chen who had looked out of sorts by the time the first game finished.

Clearly, Chen found the going difficult when the second game began. Sindhu’s powerplay meant she dominated the game from the beginning and helped herself to a 8-0 lead. While the drift had cost Sindhu a couple of points in the first game, this time it was Chen who was made the same mistake and gave away points. Sindhu led 11-1 at changeover.

Sindhu was in no mood to bring down the momentum and continued the game in same style. In 47 minutes, she wrapped up the match to enter her first final.

A two-time bronze medallist at this stage, Sindhu now has a tough ask against Okuhara who has beaten top seed Akane Yamaguchi and 2014 world champion Ratchanok Intanon in pre quarter-finals and quarter-finals respectively. Their head-to-head record stands at 3-3 with Sindhu winning the semi-finals of Rio Olympics and Singapore Open this year.

Final is turning out to be a tussle for the ages. Match is going on well over an hour and not yet done. Nozomi won first game 21-19, Sindhu pulled back 22-20 in second game. This match will go down as the most legendary women's singles final ever.

Final game currently at 9-9

Sindhu yellow carded for delaying tactics. Never mind the umpire. This match is just too long. Both can barely stand.

Looking back, Sindhu now has three world medals - two bronzes and now a silver. She just turned 22 last month. So she has 5-7 years of top flight play left in her. The world championship is an annual event, and lacks the cachet of the Olympics. Her sweetest revenge for this match would be beating Okuhara at Tokyo 2020, ideally in the final. Meanwhile, she should aim for the next few All Englands, Worlds and the year end Super Series Finals. Still plenty in her to win a few All Englands and World titles at least.

Okuhara has been unbeatable this tournament. She deserved the win. She was returning everything, sometimes almost impossible shots and also scoring winners. The best form she ever has been in. She beat Marin, Saina and Sindhu to win. Incredible.

All the new Japanese play that template. They're all short (Okuhara is 5'1 to Sindhu's 5'11) but they are energizer bunnies - Okuhara, Akane Yamaguchi, Aya Ohori...

Sindhu is fit, but could use just a little more in her tank. More than that, her movements needs a little more fluidity. Always a problem with tall players. She's already 3x worlds medalist and Olympic finalist at an age where people are just getting to the top ranks. I hope Gopi and Mulyo Handoyo keep working on her. Stealing Mulyo from the Indonesian national team has been a huge coup, with both MS and WS teams growing in ability.
