PV Sindhu said Indian Open Super Series QF match against former world No. 1 Saina Nehwal was “just another match.” Sindhu defeated Saina in straight games 21-16 22-20 to enter semi-finals.
“She (Saina) is not special that I have to win against her. She is like another player whom I have to play. It’s not that I have to win against her whenever I play. But I try to give my best against each player and gave my best against her too,” said Sindhu after the match.
This was only second international meeting between the two Indian players and first win for Sindhu over Saina. Their head-to-head in PBL is also 1-1.
