PV Sindhu Shines in Madrid Spain Masters, Advances to Second Round

Madrid, March 28 (IANS) Star Indian shuttler PV Sindhu showcased her dominance on the court as she secured a straight-game victory over Canada’s Wen Yu Zhang in the first round of the Madrid Spain Masters. With a scoreline of 21-16, 21-12, Sindhu cruised to the next round with ease.

Sindhu’s aggressive gameplay was evident from the start, as she quickly took a 4-1 lead in the first game. Despite Zhang’s attempts to narrow the gap, Sindhu maintained control and closed out the game at 21-16. The second game saw Sindhu’s momentum continue, as she clinched victory at 21-12, setting up a face-off with Chinese Taipei’s Huang Yu-Hsun in the next round.

While Sindhu’s win brought joy to Indian fans, the tournament had a mix of results for the Indian contingent.
