India's PV Sindhu won the Korea Open Superseries after defeating Japan's Nozomi Okuhara 22-20, 11-21, 21-18 in a hard-fought match that lasted an hour and 23 minutes.

Prior to Sindhu, it was Ajay Jayaram who became the first Indian to reach the final of Korea Open in 2015, however, he had to return with a silver medal. With this win, the Olympic silver medallist turns to avenge her finals loss to Okuhara in Worlds Badminton Championship 2017 that happened last month in Glasgow, UK. With this win, Sindhu clinched her third Superseries title. Sindhu committed some unforced errors here and allowed Mita ni to lead 16-13.

She won the first set easily playing 22-20 difference.

West Ham vs Huddersfield Preview in Monday Night Football
As I alluded to in the previous paragraph, West Ham are a long way from successfully integrating the new players into their squad. West Ham veteran James Collins feels victory over Huddersfield Town will relieve the pressure on the players' shoulders.

Sindhu started the game brightly, holding a 5-2 lead early in the first game. The Indian shuttler then defeated Thailand's Nitchaon Jindapol in a closely-contested 22-20, 21-17 second round match. Okuhara then displayed improved net play to win two points to take the match to a decider. Trailing 4-8 in the second, Sindhu wiped off the deficit with a sixpoint burst and surged into lead at 13-11.

When Sindhu was leading 18-16, they played a 56-shot rally with Sindhu eventually winning the point, which was the turning point of the match.

Okahura came back with a couple of points, but Sindhu races into the lead again, keeping Okahura at the base line. While the World Championships final, a 110-minute epic battle, stands out among all with an extraordinary 73-shot rally being the highlight, Sunday's encounter too was equally engrossing. Also the third game was close just like the World Championships, this time I took it off.
