Once again, the match went into a decider and both these Champions are no strangers to playing a marathon game.

Sindhu was clearly the more fatigue-affected shuttler of the two as she was stretched by her quarter-final and semi-final opponents. The Indians boys, who are ranked 39 in the world, gave a tough fight to the world No.4 team. Sindhu literally had no chance as she managed just 11 points in the second game.
