PV Sindhu has won✌ the first set in the gold-medal🏅 match in women's badminton singles against Carolina Marin 21-19. The World No.1☝ came out firing on all cylinders💥 against Sindhu and edged the rallies. She often drew Sindhu to the net and forced errors🙆 from the tall Indian girl. Sindhu mounted a serious challenge👏 in the latter part of the set and closed the equation to 19-19 before keeping her calm to notch the set👏.
Sindhu needs to ensure she starts the 2nd set on the front foot😯 and deny Marin an opening.
