PV Sindhu overcame reigning world champion Nozomi Okuhara of Japan 22-20, 11-21, 21-18 in the women's singles final of the Korea Open SuperSeries here on Sunday. When things looked like slipping put of Sindhu's hands, Sindhu stepped up her game and took the attack to Okuhara. Sindhu bounced back to win the third and title. Okuhara tried her best but Sindhu continued to pick points to keep the Japanese at bay.

The two players had previously played a grueling three-game summit clash at the World Championships last month, which lasted an hour and 50 minutes, and the 22-year-old Japanese had come out on top. "Also, her ability to comeback even after losing out on the second game is just a reflection of how hard she is training". Sindhu clinched her third Superseries title with her win in the Korean Super Series.

But that didn't matter as Sindhu saw off the World No. 7 21-10, 17-21, 21-16 in a match that lasted an hour and six minutes.

The world number 4 played ruthlessly against the 8th seeded Okuhara as she dominated her in every form.

Earlier, Indian shuttlers P.V. Sindhu had climbed up to the semi-finals along with Sameer Verma, while Indian player Parupalli Kashyap was knocked out of the Korea Open in the second round. She opened up an 11-6 handsome lead. However, Okuhara scripted a lovely comeback to level at 7-7 as her long shots forced Sindhu to hit wide of the court.

Sindhu suddenly hit a bad patch as two wide shots and one of her returns were buried in the net, giving the Chinese a 20-16 advantage. "Congratulations", Banerjee wrote on her Twitter handle.

Sheer exhaustion forced the Indian on her back as she gasped desperately in an effort to get some air into her oxygen-starved lungs.

It was a crafty ploy to further discourage her opponent, whose body language, it must be stressed, was not up to the mark.
