CWG: Saina sets date with Sindhu in women's singles final

Saina Nehwal hits a return against Canada’s Rachel Honderich during their badminton women’s singles quarter-final match at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast on 13 April 2018

India will pick up both the gold and silver from women's singles in badminton as top seed PV Sindhu and former World No. 1 Saina Nehwal set up the first-ever all-India final at a Major Games.

Lee's lackadaisical approach improved considerably thereafter and after leading 11-9 at the interval, he displayed some of the many stylish shots in his armoury to draw level and stay afloat in the high-intensity match, which was as much about elegance as sheer power. Sindhu managed to hold on to the lead for a long time. With it, Sindhu bagged the prized Gold as India's medal tally now reads 62 (26 Gold, 17 Silver, and 19 Bronze).

Sindhu, who hadn't lost a single game in her run to the final, looked utterly exhausted made more errors than usual. The second game saw complete domination from Sindhu, breezing away with an 18-8 lead and closing the contest in just 14 minutes. Srikanth then dictated play from the net to lead 11-9 at the changeover. "It's a very emotional moment because I've been waiting for one good, big victory after that disappointing (second-round) loss at Rio where I had to retire because of my injury and had to go through surgery".

Saina opened up a 5-0 lead early in the first game before Kirsty managed to open her account to trail 8-11 midway.

Saina bounced back soon and seized control again.

Saina had forced the lead right at the start of the first game and continued to increase the advantage at a steady pace.

Coachella is set to kick off this Friday in Indio, California , and will run across two weekends before wrapping up on April 22nd. Harris and Abdulhadi reached out to Goldenvoice to ask for a waiver, but the rep refused to give them one.


Saina was dominating from the beginning taking a lead of 11-6 over Sindhu.

Ashwini, however, failed to grab a bronze medal in the mixed doubles partnering Satwik, even as H S Prannoy suffered defeat in the men's singles bronze-medal playoff.

A slight moment of drama came in the second game when it seemed Lee had struck the shuttle twice to claim a point but was not penalised for it and the match went on despite Srikanth's protest.

Meanwhile, it's showering gold for India on the penultimate day of the 21st Commonwealth Games (CWG) in Gold Coast.

This was Batra's fourth medal of the Games. He had formerly won four golds in men's singles and Mixed Team respectively in 2006 and 2010, along with one silver in the Mixed Team event at this year's Commonwealth Games.
