China Open: PV Sindhu bows out after shock loss
CHANGZHOU: Reigning world champion PV Sindhu made an early exit from the China Open after losing a three-game thriller against Thailand's Pornpawee Chochuwong in the women's singles pre-quarterfinals on Thursday.
Sindhu, an Olympic silver medallist, squandered a first-game advantage to go down 12-21, 21-13, 21-19 to Pornpawee in a match that lasted 58 minutes here.

Sindhu is a big tournaments player. She does not win smaller ones. This is in a way good. Keeps her fresh.

After all the larger than life hypes she received on winning the World Championships, Sindhu has once again proved that she is still an inconsistent player. She lost to a comparatively weak player.

Every match is a new one and should be taken as such. Top players are always under pressure and they have to be focused and determined right from the start.

Old news. Very few people can digest success. All who are loosing continously should stay at home and play domestic badminton for few months. Seniors can not waste money of country.

Sindhu Played very well at the world champion. It was good performance here. But the opponent had upper hand. She will win Tokyo gold.

It is sad news. It gives the Chinese player to Semi finals. Sindhu can make semi finals and finals. Badminton is best sports. Japanese players are tough.

These ups and downs are part of competitive games. Have confidence and u will regain d momentum. After winning gold, u looked a bit overconfident. Buck up. U have bigger things to do ahead of u
