"Sindhu plays really well and, considering she is only 17, she has lot of titles to win in the future," said the winner. "I really can't say much."
Being the favourite, Sindhu was short of words at her loss.
"She played well and did not give me too many opportunities to attack. I also made many errors which really took the game away from me. The match had too many rallies and Fanetri was defending well too.
"I got a bit nervous too at the end when she levelled at 17-all in the third game. I am thankful for the support and I am really sorry that I lost today," added Sindhu.
Yup. Linda is the most consistent INA WS now. Last time I saw her play and lost to Mitani, she really need to work on her footwork, while she is a rally player, that is a must. I assume she is improving by looking at her achievements last 6 months. I noticed that if Linda has to lose, she never lost it tamely.
Compared to her team mates, that is way better. She deserved to be top 10-15.
Age factor.... Gonna be 23 soon. Barring any injury, still has a long way ahead. (Hopefully) not "mentok" yet. So, check.
Quality coach... Liang Chiuhsia & Sarwendah. Okay, check.
Quality sparring (something which the CBA & KBA are abundant).... Nope.
