Arctic Open Super 500: PV Sindhu suffers 12-21, 21-11, 7-21 defeat to Wang Zhi Yi in semi-final

Indian badminton icon PV Sindhu  failed to make it to the finale of the Arctic Open 2023 on October 14, Saturday. The two-time Olympic medalist slumped to her Chinese opponent Wang Zhi Yi 12-21, 21-11 , 7-21 at the Vantaa Energia Areena in Finland. Sindhu, who is currently ranked 13 in the BWF rankings, had taken down Vietnam’s Thuy Linh Nguyen in a marathon quarterfinal match on Friday, October 13, to make it to her fourth semi-final of the year. 

Defeating her opponent in the semifinal would have kept her in contention for her first BWF title of 2023.  With Sindhu’s loss, India’s campaign at the ongoing event ended as she was the only Indian left in the Super 500 event after Kiran George, Kidambi Srikanth, Aakarshi Kashyap and Ashwini Ponnappa/Tanisha Crasto made their respective last-16 exits on earlier on Thursday.
