Top seed P.V. Sindhu stormed into the final of the women’s singles at the Malaysia Grand Prix Gold badminton tournament with a straight-game win over Sapsiree Taerattanachai of Thailand in Kuala Lumpur on Friday.
Sindhu needed just 34 minutes to get the better of her third-seeded opponent, 21-17, 21-11 in the semifinal clash.
The 17-year-old will face fifth seeded Gu Juan of Singapore in the final.
Even though she did not have an ideal start in the opening game, Sindhu ultimately stamped her authority by winning a total of 42 points as compared to just 28 won by Taerattanachai.
