PV Sindhu has made history by becoming the first Indian to win the BWF World Tour Finals tournament, defeating her longtime nemesis, Nozomi Okuhara.
"I am the winner. No one can say I don’t win in finals, I have won the gold and this win is really special to me."Watch the Rio 2⃣0⃣1⃣6⃣🥈medalist @Pvsindhu1 speak on her #BWFWorldTourFinals win#IndiaontheRise #badminton pic.twitter.com/nXIkMMTETf— BAI Media (@BAI_Media) December 16, 2018
This was Sindhu's third time playing the season-ender.
Last year, she had to settle for a silver against her clash with Akane Yamaguchi.
She also had to suffer heartbreaks at this year's Asian Games and Commonwealth Games where she had to settle for a silver.
However, this time around, her never-say-die attitude coaxed her to beat the fifth-ranked Okuhara in a match that lasted a little over an hour.
This historic win was her career's 14th title.
Desi Twitter was enveloped in a celebratory mood as congratulatory messages for Sindhu came pouring in.
