Indian ace badminton player PV Sindhu claimed her first BWF Super 500 title this year by defeating China’s Wang Zhi Yi in the Singapore Open final on Sunday. Sindhu’s coach Park Taesang lauded the World No. 7 badminton star by posting a picture with the winner on his social media account.
Former South Korean badminton professional took to Instagram to appreciate the title-winning performance by the Indian ace. He wrote: “Someone said This competition is too easy because the top rankers didn’t participate. Yes, they didn’t participate. But that doesn’t mean Sindhu’s win is anything but light, Light to shine.”
Park has admired the hard work and Sindhu’s passion for the game as he wrote, “It doesn’t matter who participates, who doesn’t. It is important who won the championship. She trained harder than anyone else and poured her passion into it. Who can despise this win for her like that? You deserve it, sindhu. You are the 2022 champion of the Singapore Open @pvsindhu1.”
Sindhu started the match by taking an early lead in the first game, however, Wang Zhi Yi’s second game comeback went in vain as the Indian player maintained her composure to win the third game and defeated the Chinese player 21-9, 11-21, 21-15.
