India’s ace shutter P V Sindhu has at last broken her losing streak in the finals . Putting up a determined display when it mattered most , Sindhu battled hard to win a tough encounter against Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara 21-19, 21-17 to clinch her maiden BWF World Tour Finals title.
With the straight-game victory, Sindhu became the first Indian to achieve the feat.
Playing her third successive season-ending finale, Sindhu, who had lost in the summit clash to another Japanese, Akane Yamaguchi, to settle for a silver in the last edition, prevailed 21-19 21-17 in a match that lasted an hour and two minutes.
