Yet again, the rivalry between Spain's Carolina Marin and India's PV Sindhu gets renewed on Friday, April 14; this time at the Singapore Open 2017. Such is the schedule of badminton with a BWF super series tournament happening almost every week.
Their latest battle is still very much fresh in our memories, when Pusarla Venkata Sindhu recorded an emphatic win over Marin at the India Open 2017 final earlier this month. Sindhu bagged a 21-19, 21-16 win over the Olympic champion then.
This time around, the yet-another rematch of the Rio Olympics 2016 women's badminton singles final, takes place in the quarterfinals of the Singapore Open tournament.
