Tai Tzu showed complete dominance as she took only 34 minutes to win the match in straight sets with a score of 21-13, 21-16. However, Sindhu became the first Indian to cement her spot in the final of the Women’s Singles Event at the Asian Games. This is Sindhu‘s third defeat in a big final this year, having lost the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games title clash to Saina Nehwal and the World Championship summit clash to Spain’s Carolina Marin.
