A lot of unexpected incidents happened “I need to work on my mistakes and come back stronger,” Sindhu was quoted as saying by the Badminton Association of India (BAI).

Sindhu, ranked 11th in the badminton rankings, took control early in the first game, making the most of the court, which helped her take a 4-1 lead. However, An Se Young made a quick comeback to level the score at 4-4 and then took an 11-8 lead at the mid-game interval.
