Double Olympic medallist PV Sindhu lifted the Singapore Open badminton Super 500 trophy after outwitting China's Wang Zhi Yi in an intense women's singles final, on Sunday.
In the hard-fought title clash, Sindhu managed to stay strong in the key moments to come up trumps 21-9, 11-21, 21-15 against the 22-year-old Wang, the reigning Asian Championships gold medallist.
The title run will be a big boost for Sindhu, who will be leading the Indian charge at the Commonwealth Games, starting July 28 in Birmingham.
This was her third title of the season -- having won two Super 300 crowns in Syed Modi International and Swiss Open -- and an addition to her brimming cabinet which has a gold, two silver and two bronze medals from the World Championships besides two Olympic medals.
