India's star shuttler PV Sindhu registered a commanding 21-19, 21-10 victory over Chen YuFei of China to enter the final of Indonesia Open World Tour Super 1000. 

In the final, Sindhu will meet Japan's Akane Yamaguchi, who defeated world number one Tai Tzu Ying 21-9, 21-15 in the semi-finals. 

In the semi-final, Chen dominated the world number five Sindhu in the first set but the later one bounced back and registred a hard-fought win to enter the first final of the year. 

In the quarter-finals, Sindhu had defeated Nozomi Okuhara 21-14, 21-7 to book a spot among the last four. 

Sindhu has participated in six tournaments so far since the year started and reached only two semi-finals. 

Sindhu has been struggling with her form lately and her last title was the BWF World Tour Finals that came in December 2018.
