P V Sindhu secured her fifth BWF World Championships medal following a stunning comeback while B Sai Praneeth became the first Indian male shuttler in 36 years to grab a podium in the prestigious event here on Friday.
On a day of double delight for India, Olympic silver medallist Sindhu staged a come-from-behind victory over Chinese Taipei’s Tai Tzu Ying, before Praneeth ended an agonising wait with a straight-game win over Indonesia’s Jonatan Christie.
The best shuttlers in the world are competing for world supremacy from 19 to 25 August in Basel, Switzerland. Around 400 of the world’s elite players have gathered this August in an attempt to clinch one of the five titles on offer in men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles.
