P V Sindhu, the wonder girl of India is now the hottest sensation in the World's second largest populated country which is striving for an Olympic medal after Sakshi Malik's magical performance. The 21-year-old will take on the biggie Carolina Marin in the Women's Badminton Singles final on August 19, 2016, at the Rio. The game starts at 6:55 p.m. IST.

When India's Olympic campaign began, Saina Nehwal was the trump card for the nation's badminton outings. But the world-class player got expelled in her second match, but Sindhu kept her heads up and steered herself to the finals of this big tournament. Silver is guaranteed for India, as the young teenager is playing the final, but more than 120 Crore people expect nothing less than gold.

Exceptional play in the semi's

Sindhu has showcased some brilliant piece of playing ability in the last match against World Number 6 Nozomi Okoruhava of Japan. The first set of the game was quite even, but in the second set, Sindhu showed her full fury and scored 11 points in a row.

The whole nation is now in a state of ecstasy, and they are all thanking Sindhu and her coach Gopichand for this impeccable performance.

Unlike other matches, she showed incredible aggressiveness in the last event, and this is raising the expectations of her fans and well wishers. In the semi's, the psychological advantage too was in favor of the Indian player, as she was seen screaming after winning every point, even in the midst of Japanese fans all around the stadium.
