Copenhagen: India's P.V. Sindhu had to be content with the bronze as Spaniard Carolina Marin proved the better shuttler on the day, winning the women's singles semi-final quite easily in straight games at the World Badminton Championships here Saturday.

The 11th-seeded Sindhu had created history Friday when she made the last four to become the first Indian to notch two medals at the sport's most prestigious event, having also clinched the bronze last year in Guangzhou.

Expecting to go one better this time around, the ninth-seeded Spaniard halted that dream by taking the contest 21-17, 21-15 in 47 minutes at the 9,200-seater Ballerup Super Arena.
