Star badminton player PV Sindhu had to be content with a runner-up finish at the Indonesia Open after losing the title clash in straight games to Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi, Sunday.
Sindhu lost the final of the BWF Tour Super 1000 tournament 15-21 16-21 to the fourth seed.
The Olympic silver medallist had come into the contest with a favourable 10-4 head-to-head record against the Japanese.
Nevertheless, it was season’s best performance for the world number five Indian, who had reached the semifinals at Singapore and India Open earlier. (PTI)
