PV Sindhu and Ajay Jayaram’s impressive run in the China Masters Superseries badminton event ended after they lost their respective semi-finals here on Saturday.
Sindhu, who upset London Olympics gold medallist Li Xuerui in the quarter-finals on Friday, gave another Chinese, Jiang Yanjiao, a run for her money before losing 10-21, 21-14, 19-21 at the Olympics Sports Center Xincheng Gymnasium here.
The 17-year-old staged a remarkable recovery after being hammered in the opening game. It was a neck-and-neck fight in the decider.
