World No.3 Sindhu looked like she would win the match pretty easily, after wrapping up the first game in just 14 minutes. But the world No.9 Bingjiao fought back in the second game with deft work at the net and stooping drops. The third and final game was more evenly fought, but it was Sindhu with her big smashes that http://www.authenticrangersstore.com/keith-yandle-jersey_c-424.html forced errors from her Womens Zach Zenner Jersey opponent and to give her the win.
Sindhu was making Bingjiao go through the paces in the first game as she raced to a 11-6 Malcolm Jenkins Youth jersey lead as the players took the first break. The left handed Chinese was finding it increasingly difficult to handle Sindhu's crosscourt smashes. The only Indian woman in the fray, made sure to use the full width of the court with her well-placed shots , shooting to a 16-8 lead. She finally took the first game 21-11.
After trailing in the initial stages of the second game, she came fought back to make it 7-7 at one point only to trail 11-9 going into the break. She briefly tried to stage a comeback, but her hopes of a straight game victory was snuffed out as the Chinese shuttler staved off all resistance, taking the second game 16-21, to take the match into a third decider.
In the third and last game, it was neck and neck from the very beginning as the two shuttlers exchanged blows.
