The intense fight continued thereafter and at one stage both the shuttlers were locked at 16-16 when Marin won a brilliant rally with a cross court drop shot. "But I belief in myself and was confident that I could turn it around", Sindhu said after the match.

Cheered on by a sizable crowd at the Siri Fort Sports Complex, Sindhu dished out a superb performance to outwit the second seeded Hyun 21-18 14-21 21- in a battle of nerves, in which fortunes fluctuated.

The victory was Sindhu's second at the Superseries level but her first at home.

Sindhu upped the ante in the second game with a strong and solid court game, to race to a 4-0 lead.

Sindhu who had lost to the Spanish badminton queen in the title clash at Rio Olympics extracted sweet revenge to win the India Open Superseries title in front her home fans.

This is where the Spaniard is considered to be a risky opponent as she can change the tempo of the match at will. Second-seeded Chinese pair of Kai Lu and Yaqiong Huang won the Mixed Doubles title at the super series.

The maiden title win helped the Indian shuttler narrow down her head-to-head record against the Olympian Spaniard to 4-5.

Not taking anything away from Marin, though, Sindhu said, "Marin also played well". But then she hit two returns outside the area and handed Sindhu a match point which she converted as Marin hit the return long. "It did not turn out to be a good match for me but I am happy that I have reached the finals", Marin said after the match. While, SIndhu, considering her recent form, will start the clash as favourite, Marin, with her never-say-die attitude, can be unsafe.
