The marquee Indian Badminton League clash between Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu in Delhi on Thursday turned out to be an anti-climax. London Olympics bronze medallist Saina whipped teenage sensation and World Badminton Championships bronze medallist PV Sindhu 21-19, 21-8 in a totally one-sided contest. (All the pics from Day 2)
There was tremendous media hype around this match, and Saina seemed to be the 'outsider'. 'Favourite' Sindhu, however, disappointed.
In a post match chat Saina admitted there was pressure on her but most of it came from the media. She said tongue-in-cheek, "I think the media made me lose the match, even before it started!"
