PV Sindhu advances to the quarterfinals of the Madrid Masters


PV Sindhu won easily in straight games to extend her stellar run at the Madrid Spain Masters and move on to the quarterfinals.

PV Sindhu extended her remarkable run at the Madrid Spain Masters, defeating Chinese Taipei’s Huang Yu-Hsun in straight games on Thursday to go to the quarterfinals. Sindhu had a seamless performance, with the Taiwanese qualifier, rated world no. 63, putting up little resistance, culminating in a 21-14 21-12 triumph in 36 minutes. The former world champion, who finished second in the previous event, will face either Thailand’s sixth seed Supanida Katethong or Japan’s Natsuki Nidaira.

Sindhu led 3-0 in the first game but then went into a phase when she frequently found the net or went far, while her opponent delivered some accurate returns to take a 7-6 lead before securing a one-point lead with a straight down the line smash.

The Indian, on the other hand, put on a better performance after resuming play, building an 18-12 lead with Yu-Hsun making mistakes. She quickly collected eight game points, but squandered two of them before sealing the first game with her trademark smash.

Yu-Hsun struggled to control the shuttle after switching sides, since her lifts were consistently too lengthy. The Taiwanese shuttler tried to employ drops and placements, but her smashes lacked strength.

As a result, Sindhu silently waited for her opponent to make mistakes. She quickly built a five-point lead at halftime. Yu-Hsun consistently made unforced errors when attempting to extend the rallies.

Sindhu quickly added eight match points with a smash, and she sealed the victory when her opponent splashed into the net once more.

After winning the All England Championships and the Swiss Open in the previous two weeks, top seed Carolina Marin of Spain withdrew from the competition, making Sindhu the clear favorite to win and break the long wait.

It was the Singapore Open Super 500 in 2022 that gave Sindhu her final BWF tour title.
