PV Sindhu has a chance to become the first Indian female to win two Olympic medals.
Indian shuttler PV Sindhu is all set to face China's He Bingjiao in the bronze medal play-off in badminton women's singles event at Tokyo Olympics 2020 on August 1 (Sunday) after her hopes of winning a gold medal were dashed as she lost in semis to Chinese Taipei’s Tai Tzu-Ying 18-21, 12-21 in straight games.
Sindhu will try to find enough motivation and energy to get over the semi-final disappointment as the reigning world champion PV Sindhu has a chance to become the first Indian female to win two Olympic medals.
Here's what Sindhu said after semi-final loss:
After the semi-final loss, Sindhu said, "It was a good match. I fought until the end. In the second game I gave away a huge lead but still I was fighting back because you never know, it can change at any moment. It‘s the Olympics, you have to fight until the last point and I have done that. I'm a bit sad because it’s the semifinals. I’ve tried my best, but it was just not my day."
