No semi-final glory for India's Sindhu
World No 29 Ajay Jayaram also ousted in penultimate round
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.
