    On Saturday, P V Sindhu notched up a comfortable straight-game win in women's singles to enter the final. Sindhu, held an all-win 4-0 record against Busanan Ongbumrungpan of Thailand before coming into the match and the Indian kept her record intact by registering her fifth win. The second-seeded Indian prevailed over Busanan, seeded eighth, 21-14 21-15 in a 42- minute match at the Tap Seac Multisport Pavilion. Busanan moved into an early 5-2 lead but she couldn't keep the pressure on Sindhu and the Indian turned the tables, reaching 13-9 and didn't allow the Thai girl to claw back to pocket the first game. In the second game, Sindhu zoomed to 5-1 initially. Busanan drew parity at 8-8 and 12-12 but once again she was not consistent enough to bother Sindhu. The duo played aggressive rallies and Busan played some extraordinary shots but it was mostly followed by a miscued hits which allowed Sindhu to keep her lead. Leading 19-15, Sindhu changed the pace of the rallies as Busanan hit the shuttle out and then found the net to hand over the match and the final place to the Indian.
