In BWF World Championship held from 21 to 27 August 2017 at Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Sindhu won silver after losing to Japan's Nozomi Okuhara in the finals with sores 19-21, 22-20, 20-22.

In the opening game, Sindhu took a 6-2 lead and continued her march ahead.

It was a dominating performance by Tzu-Ying who displayed why she is the top-ranked player in the women's game now.

The Thai constructed another post with an angled shot to draw Sindhu near the court and then produced a victor on her backhand. Deceptive net returns and backhand smashes, coupled with unforced errors from Sindhu, allowed the Taiwanese to lead 18-14.

Tai enjoys a healthy 7-3 advantage in career head-to-head records.

However, Tai dominated the proceedings after the interval, racing to 17-12. Can Sindhu break the jinx?
