Sindhu settles for silver in BWF World Tour Finals Indian badminton ace P V Sindhu settled for a silver medal at the BWF World Tour Finals after going down meekly against Korean teen sensation An Seyoung in the summit clash, here on Sunday.
Sindhu, the reigning world champion and two-time Olympic medallist, could neither match the pace nor breach the defense of the world number six Korean, losing 16-21 12-21 in the 40-minute lop-sided clash. It was Sindhu's third successive loss -- all straight games -- to the Korean in as many meetings.
With this victory, An Seyoung became the first-ever South Korean woman to win the season-ending title. It was also her third straight title in Bali, following wins at the Indonesia Masters and Indonesia Open in the last two weeks.
