Badminton: PV Sindhu wins maiden China Open title in a thrilling final

Sindhu, who became the toast of the country after becoming the first Indian women to win a silver at Rio Games, continued her rampaging run as she lifted the prestigious title after beating Sun 21-11 17-21 21-11 in the summit clash that lasted an hour and nine minutes.

PV Sindhu wins maiden China Super Series title: This is how nation congratulates her

World No. 11 Sindhu had come into the match with a 2-3 head-to-head record but then statistics counted little when she took the court at the Haixia Olympic Sports Center.

The Indian looked sharp and athletic as she engaged in a fast-paced game to bamboozle her opponent.

Saina Nehwal had clinched the China Open in 2014 before finishing runners-up last year.

Sindhu had reached her maiden Super Series final at the Denmark Open last year but the title eluded her then as she lost in straight games to 2012 Olympic champion China's Li Xuerei.

Here's how nation hailed the young shuttler:
