Two-time World Championship bronze medallist P V Sindhu lifted her first
title of the season by successfully defending the USD 120,000 Macau Grand Prix
Gold trophy after seeing off Kim Hyo Min of Korea in the women's singles finals
in Macau on Sunday, 30 November.
World No. 11 Sindhu prevailed over 91st-ranked, Kim 21-12 21-17 in the summit
clash that lasted 45 minutes at the Tap Seac Multisport Pavilion.
The bronze-medallist at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, Sindhu faced tough
competition from Kim, who had come into the finals after beating seventh seed
Chinese Yu Sun but the experienced Indian held her nerves to stave off the
challenge from the Korean. Kim started off on an aggressive note and found the
gaps easily to lead 3-0.
Sindhu had lost the Syed Modi Grand Prix Gold final to fellow Indian Saina
Nehwal in January this year.
