From one champion to another Prakash Padukone pays PV Sindhu the ultimate respect

From one champion to another Prakash Padukone pays PV Sindhu the ultimate respect

Sindhu also became the only second Indian to reach the final of a World Championship after Saina achieved that feat in the last edition at Jakarta.

With this, India's hopes of clinching their maiden medal in the men's category at the World Championships also ended.

With her last point, Japan's Okuhara won the third game by22-20 and the Championship Gold by 21-19, 20-22 and 22-20. There were smashes that were buried in the net, kills that flew wide of empty courts or net play that didn't carry enough momentum to pop over to the other side. The two players have met seven times so far in global badminton with Saina having an upper hand in six of those battles.

The Indian used her height to good effect, retrieving the shuttles quickly and started using her cross-court returns to trouble the Japanese.

Saina kept pace with her younger and sharper opponent but she got exhausted towards the end.

IST: We are just moments away from the start of the match. Never one to take a shortcut, Saina spent hours at the gym, challenging herself.

Finally, Cypress Capital Group acquired a new stake in shares of Ulta Beauty during the second quarter worth $218,000. The specialty retailer reported $1.83 EPS for the quarter, beating the consensus estimate of $1.78 by $0.05.

Nehwal created history in 2015 by becoming the first Indian to reach the final of World Badminton Championships. It is a testimony to her never-say-die attitude.

The strategy before the semis was to take advantage of the fact that Okuhara would be exhausted after her long quarter-final against Carolina Marin that lasted 93 minutes.

At 2-2 in the first game, Saina and Okuhara played a tough 32-shot rally where both players targeted the corners. A brilliant inside-out smash gave Okuhara her first point in seven attempts but a long drive in the next rally means that the six point advantage is intact. The breakthrough finally came this week, as he brushed aside Olympic, world and Asia champion Chen Long in the semifinals, and dismissed Lin without dropping a game to either Chinese star. Besides, she still is not back to her pre-surgery fitness. You made the country proud. If a particular nut or bolt has been overused, realign the machine to put less stress on the worn out part.

Okuhara's fast-paced game did not yield much result early on as Saina fortified her defence and continued to dominate the rallies to lead 17-10. What Saina needs to do is to introduce an unorthodox element into her game.

The Japanese grabbed the match point again when Sindhu found the net and she used it this time with a flawless return on Sindhu's backhand to seal the title.
