Indian badminton star PV Sindhu claimed the Macau Open Grand Prix title on today November 28 after defeating Japan’s Minatsu Mitani 21-9, 21-23, 21-14. Sindhu had lost her only match against Mitani in Japan Open this year so Sindhu also got her revenge along with the title.
In the final Sindhu started in fine fashion by taking a 10 points lead in the first game and went on to win the game 21 – 9. Some unforced errors from Mitani helped the Indian rake up the points. The second game was more closely fought as Sindhu made some errors in judgement and Mitani pipped her 23 – 21. In the final game showing some fine net play and drop shots Sindhu got up to 20 – 11. Even though Mitani saved 3 match points, in the end the gap proved to be enough for Sindhu to win the title for 3rd straight year. This is Sindhu’s only tiltle this year.
