BWF World Championships : Carolina Marin makes history with third world titleCreated On: Aug 06, 2018
PV Sindhu settled for silver after losing to Spain's Carolina Marin 21-19, 21-10 in the BWF World Championships final.
Carolina Marin now adds the 2018 crown to her titles in 2014 and 2015, and the Olympic gold at Rio 2016.
I was not able to get my strokes in. Either they were going out or into the net. And, by the time I could recover, she raced away to a huge lead, said Sindhu about what went wrong in the second set.
Marin is a very aggressive player and has her own style of game and it is always a challenge to take her on in any tournament, she added. I thought I was pretty close to winning the gold but ended up a loser. It is disappointing having come thus far but there are lots of positives for me from this championship as I had beaten some of the best players before making it to the final. This should augur well for me ahead of the Asian Games, she explained.
