Birmingham:PV Sindhu vowed to come back stronger after losing an epic semifinal against world No. 2 Akane Yamaguchi at the All England Championship.
In a nail-biting last-four clash, fourth seed Sindhu went down fighting 21-19 19-21 18-21 to Yamaguchi after battling for an hour and 19 minutes.
“It was just not my day. I gave my 100 per cent,” Sindhu said after the gruelling contest. “There are always ups and downs and one should win and one should lose. There were long rallies and she played well.”
“Playing a three-game tie is not easy. Just 2-3 points made a huge difference in the end as it was anybody’s game. I have a lot of things to learn from this tournament. You keep losing and winning but it was a good tournament and I have to come back stronger.”

World No. 1 Tai Tzu Ying retained her women’s singles title after beating Yamaguchi 22-20 21-13 in the final on Sunday.
Seventh seed Shi Yuqi won the biggest title of his career as the 22-year-old Chinese beat compatriot Lin Dan to clinch the men’s singles crown.
