“I am playing against her after a long time, I think 2019. We did not play at all. I am sure she would have been training hard. Today’s match was good and difficult in the long run,” Sendo said.
“In the first game I was making a lot of mistakes and hitting them because I was on the side that had a stronger drift. The second game was in my favour. Lots of long rallies. It was important to get that second game.
“In the third match, it was very decisive. My coach was very supportive, and he was making sure I controlled the shuttle well. Every point was very important. Overall, it was anyone’s match but I am happy to be on the winning side.”
The Indian enjoys an overwhelming 4-1 lead against world number 11, Bornbawi Chuchwong of Thailand.
