Sindhu is bidding to become the first Indian woman to reach the final of the World Tour Super 1000 tournament. Akane saved one but world No.3 Sindhu closed the game in her favour with a smash to take the lead in the match.

Sindhu then lost two successive challenges after her and Okuhara's shots went wide as the Japanese earned the bragging rights.

Sindhu managed to win a couple of points to reach gamepoint at 20-18. Playing her maiden All England Open semi-final, Sindhu continued from where she had left as she opened the first game with a body smash to earn her first point and soon races to a 6-0 lead. "It feels really great to be in the semi-final". Can Sindhu win the second game to seal to enter final?

"Sindhu is a very tall player; so she is very strong in attacking". Sindhu had lost to Okuhara in the World Championships final earlier.

Until and unless the Indian can assert her supremacy through her aggression and make continued efforts to keep the points short, it is hard to see overcoming the Japanese barrier. Sindhu needs to up her game if she wants to end it here.

The 22-year-old revealed she had worked on the mental aspect of her game, which helped her quickly move on from mistakes.

And Yamaguchi has made it 17-17. The Indian leads 19-17 now.

"Sometimes you lose confidence or get nervous if you start losing points, but you have to let it go and strategize for the next point and be ready for the unexpected", Sindhu was quoted as saying by BWF's official website Friday.

She may have won the game but the momentum is with the Japanese. After the breather, Okuhara extended her lead to 14-11. Sindhu held a slender 11-9 lead at the interval after Jindapol hit wide on both side of the flank. She is dominating the first games.
