Guangzhou (China): Indian shuttler P.V. Sindhu defeated former world champion Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand in straight games in their women's singles semi-final at the 2018 BWF World Tour Finals here on Saturday.
The 23-year-old Olympic silver medallist, who has not lost to World No.8 Intanon in the last two years, breezed into the final after quashing her Thai opponent 21-16, 25-23 in 54 minutes, reports Efe.
The world number six from Hyderabad - who entered the semi-finals after defeating Beiwen Zhang of the US 21-9, 21-15 on Friday - dominated the first game, winning it in 20 minutes after grabbing an initial 6-4 lead.
Intanon bounced back in the second game but Sindhu did not lose nerve and won it in a nail-biting finish to wrap up the match.
Sindhu will now play against Japan's Nozomi Okuhara in the final on Sunday.
