The World No. 11, who became the first Indian to bag a silver medal in badminton's singles event at the Olympics, has not been at her best after the Rio Games 2016. She faced early exits in Denmark Super Series Premier and French Super Series.

 

The 'Comeback Queen,' as she is known these days finally reached the final of the third tournament she played after the Olympics.

The Hyderabadi girl faced the sixth seed, Sung Ji Hyun, in the penultimate round on Saturday. The India began the all crucial match with a first game loss of 11-21.

 

The score showed that the South Korean dominated Sindhu completely. However, yet another comeback was awaited as Sindhu went on to seal the next two games and the match 11-21, 23-21, 21-19.
