India’s badminton star PV Sindhu will clash with current world no.1 Tai Tzu ying of Chinese Taipei in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics’ badminton women’s singles semi-final at the Musashino Forest Sport Plaza on Saturday, July 31.

While reigning world champion and sixth seed Sindhu defeated Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi 21-13 22-20 in a hard-fought quarter-final, second seed Tai Tzu ying overcame Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand 14-21, 21-18, 21-18 in another quarter-final clash.

With her stunning quarter-final victory, the Rio Olympic silver medallist kept alive India’s hopes of a first-ever Olympic gold in badminton.

“The first game was mostly under my control. I was gaining the lead but I didn’t take it easy because in her previous matches she came back. But I maintained the lead and finished it off," Sindhu said after her quarter-final win.

“In the second game I was leading but then she came back. But I still fought back, I never lost hope and I continued with the same tempo. I am very much happy with the way I controlled the shuttle, not many errors," the 26-year-old added.

However, Sindhu will head into her semi-final match against her Chinese Taipei rival as an underdog. The Indian shuttler has struggled against her semi-final opponent in the past and has a 5-13 head-to-head record against Tai Tzu.
