Star Indian shuttler PV Sindhu on Sunday vowed to come back stronger after losing semifinal against World No. 2 Akane Yamaguchi at the All England Championship.

In a nail-biting match, Sindhu went down fighting 21-19, 19-21, 18-21 to Yamaguchi. 

Despite the loss in a match that continued for an hour and 19 minutes, Sindhu said she had a good tournament and will try to comeback stronger. 

She added that it was not her day as it was a close game and Yamaguchi played well to win the match.

“It was just not my day. I gave my 100 per cent. There are always up and downs and one should win and one should lose. There were long rallies and she played well,” Sindhu said.

“Playing a three-game tie is not easy. Just 2-3 points made the huge difference in the end as it was anybody’s game. I have a lot of things to learn from this tournament. You keep losing and winning but it was a good tournament and I have to come back stronger,” she added.

Yamaguchi was trailing 17-18 in the final game but took four straight points which won her the semi-final. After the win, the Japan player said that this win is very valuable.

“This win is very valuable asset for me. I am thankful that I got a chance to fight tomorrow. I was just trying to keep up with the pace and hang on. I was aggressive in the end and it led to the win,” she said.

Yamaguchi will face World No. 1 Tai Tzu Ying in the final and the Japanese is ready to face her and enjoy the game.
