A three-game victory over Wang Zhi Yi of China earned PV Sindhu the coveted Singapore Open title.

In three games, PV Sindhu defeated Wang Zhi Yi by a score of 21-9, 11-21, 21-15, winning the Singapore Open.

In Saturday's semifinals, PV Sindhu beat Japan's Saena Kawakami to reach the women's singles final of the Singapore Open 2022.

In a 31-minute final four clash, Sindhu defeated world No 38 Kawakami 21-15, 21-7. Aya Ohori will meet Wang Zhi Yi in Sunday's final against the winner of the other semifinal.

A bronze medalist in Tokyo, the Swiss Open BWF Super 300 title is the Tokyo bronze medalist's third summit clash of 2022. However, the Singapore meet is a Super 500 race.

As Sindhu peppered her Japanese opponent with well-placed smashes and deft drop shots throughout the match, she raced to a 7-2 lead.

In the quarterfinals, Kawakami upset Thai ace Pornpawee Chochuwong after getting a walkover from top seed Tai Tzu Ying. 

As the tide seemed to be turning in the Japanese player's favor, the Indian stepped up and took five of the final six points to win.
