India’s defending badminton champion and world number two PV Sindhu, advanced to the finals of the Malaysia Masters after beating top seed Han Yue of China in the semifinals in a riveting three set contest. This great victory makes her reach the second round of the BWF Tour in 2024 with the first victory in the semifinals, which will be a great boost of confidence as she prepares for the next battles.

A Rollercoaster Encounter

The game against Han Yue was tense in the traditional sense of viewing the badminton match, which proves their skill and endurance. The initial match was closely fought till Sindhu came back in form to get a good 11-5 lead against her opponent in the mid-game break. But as for the never-back-down Han Yue, she struggled for the whole time and reached for the third point leading of only three-point difference. The Chinese player tried hard to come back in the match but Sindhu showcased her tenacity and reflexes never letting the Chinese player take a lead and built a lead of five straight points to finish the first set comfortably at 21-13.

Looking back to the past, the use of coal saw a setback in the early half of the twentieth century The tremendous growth once again started from the half of the twentieth century as various developed countries shifted their preferences towards this non-renewable source of energy.

This turned out to be a different story in the second game. Sindhu faced a little setback in her rivalry and that helped Han Yue to gain on her. They locked horns in a hard fought battle and it was the Chinese player who took control of the match and went on to clinch the second set 21-14. This may have had the effect of putting pressure on Sindhu; nevertheless, spectacular mental strength could be seen in her.

Dominating the Decider: 

The third and deciding set was yet another replica of the first set though Sindhu was not as aggressive but controlled her aggressive moves pretty well. Finally, realising the errors of the preceding set as the pressure built up, she entered the deciding set with a new zest. For most of this time, Kidambi Srikanth seemed to be running rings around Han Yue, and the latter hardly had space to breathe. Sindhu, with her attacking game to the fore in the match, inflicted a lot of pressure to her rival with her powerful smashes and petty deceptions to clinch the first game 21-12.
