Jindapol undoes Sindhu

Nitchaon Jindapol (THA) beat PV Sindhu (IND)[3] 21-19, 21-18

2013 Australian Open runner-up Nitchaon Jindapol was the undoing of Rio Olympic silver and twice World Championship silver medallist PV Sindhu.

Jindapol was both prepared to do the homework and legwork involved for such a significant achievement. Sindhu’s smashes were regularly counter-attacked and the Thai pushed her opponent to stretch as much as she was being pressured to.
