The final match between PV Sindhu and Carolina Marin at the India Open is tentatively scheduled for 06:00 pm IST.

This was Sindhu's second Super Series title after the China Open past year where she defeated Sun Yu of China in the final.

It is a rivalry that began in 2010, and to date, PV Sindhu vs Carolina Marin is one of the biggest crowd-pullers in women's badminton.

On her part, Carolina said, "I played those last few points very badly".

Third seed Axelsen crushed Chou 21-13 21-10 in just 36 minutes to claim his maiden India Open title at the Siri Fort Sports Complex.

"It is a great victory, I can not express my happiness in words", said Sindhu later.

The closest Sung came close to erase the deficit was when one cross-court smash caught Sindhu off-guard giving the scoreline a 17-16 in favour of the Indian.

This was not the first meeting between Sindhu and Marin since their classic Olympic clash in August, 2016, in which the Spaniard emerged victorious. In the past also, I have played against her and it was never easy to play her.

On the day, Sindhu was far better than Marin controlling the proceedings easily.

While Tanaka/Yonemoto are playing in their first Superseries final, they have at least won a Grand Prix Gold title already. She might know my game and I might know hers, we both will have this feeling that we won against each other. Six points in a row in the first game saw Sindhu take a 6-1 lead.

Axelsen adopted an aggressive approach all throughout the match and barring lapse in concentration at the start of the opening game, the Dane produced a blemish-less display on the court.

The men's doubles crown was annexed by fourth seeded Indonesian pair of Marcus Fernaldi Gideon and Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo, who beat sixth seeds compatriots Ricky Karandasuwardi and Angga Pratama 21-11 21-15 in a contest that lasted exactly half-an-hour. Aware of the importance of winning the next point, Sindhu attacked the net and tapped down the net-dribble on Marin's body.

In mixed doubles, second seeded Chinese Lu Kai and Huang Yaqiong will take on Zheng Siwei and Chen Qingchen in the Final.
