India’s PV Sindhu defeated local favourite Sun Yu 21-11, 17-21, 21-11 in 69 minutes to win the China Open and collect her first Super Series title. The 21-year-old became the third non-Chinese woman to win the title after Malaysia’s Wong Mew Choo in 2007 and India’s own Saina Nehwal in 2014.
PV Sindhu will look to win her first Super Series title when she takes on Chinese Sun Yu in the China Open final in Fuzhao.
World No 11 Sindhu trails her 9th-ranked opponent 2-3 in head to head. The last time the two faced off was at the Swiss Open in 2014.
This is the third straight year that an Indian woman has made the China Open singles final. Saina Nehwal won the title in 2014 and finished runner-up in the 2015 edition of the USD 700,000 Super Series Premier event.
After winning the silver medal at the Rio Olympics, Sindhu suffered second-round exits at the Denmark and French Open tournaments.
A Super Series title would go a long way in bringing the season back on track for the Indian.
