All England Open: Sindhu eyes final berth

Huang, however, caught up at 16-16 and held the game point at 20-18.

An hour into the match, Sindhu led 11-7 in the final game.

The other semi-final will be contested between Chinese Taipei's world No.1 Tai Tzu Ying and Chinese eight seed Chen Yufei.

Sindhu defeated Nitchaon Jindapol of Thailand in three games to book her place in the women's singles quarter-finals. But a slight lapse of concentration in the dying moments and the match was over in the end. She is dominating the game so far, leads 5-0 against Yamaguchi in the opening game. "I have to be patient enough, and keep going, keep the shuttle in the court because she is a rally player, so have to be very consistent". Trailing 9-13, Yamaguchi played the shot of the match when she finished a marathon rally with a drop shot that Sindhu was never ready for. "I made too many unforced errors there", Sindhu added. However, Sindhu enjoyed a healthy 11-5 lead at the first break.

His remarks came soon after Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann resigned as the AAP's Punjab chief and Aman Arora resigned as co-president. The AAP poll plank in the run-up to the Assembly elections previous year revolved largely around eradicating the drug menace.

Indian saved one game point (19-20) but a lucky net chord helped the Japanese to win the second game in 28 minutes.

Sindhu isn't as sharp at the net, her backhand isn't always operational and she can't help it - though she almightily tries - to pool in all the demands of constructing a victor: the lunge, the stretch, the tiring overheads, the deep sideways dives.

"We played with them many times, and we always win so we know how they play and we have already learned about them".

The decider was a tight affair, Srikanth and Yuxiang fought gallantly for each point but the Chinese took a 11-10 lead at the break.

Another great rally- but this time Sindhu gets the point. She draws level 17-17 in the opening game.

Sindhu then lost two successive challenges after her and Okuhara's shots went wide as the Japanese earned the bragging rights. Yamaguchi wins the battle in the end. Yamaguchi then finished the game with an overhead crosscourt that fell low to Sindhu's left. While Yamaguchi was a bit more analytic and admitted that she does have a chance against Sindhu. A cross court drive earned the Indian a point. But it was closer to the ground, in the low pick ups and desperate retrieves that Yamaguchi was gaining ascendancy with her lower centre of gravity and natural athleticism. Okuhara then sent one over the back line to hand over a game point to Sindhu, whose return got buried at the net after breaking the strings of her racquet as it was 20-20.
