Hyderabad, Sep 17 (PTI) Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today congratulated ace shuttler P V Sindhu for winning the women’s singles title at the Korea Open Super Series.

“The CM wished that PV Sindhu would bring many laurels to the country and the state in future,” an official statement from Rao’s office said.

The Olympic silver medallist shuttler today exacted sweet revenge of her world championship heart-break as she defeated Nozomi Okuhara of Japan in a thrilling summit clash to clinch the women’s singles title at the Korea Open Super Series in Seoul.

Sindhu had lost to Okuhara in the world championship final in Glasgow last month in an epic battle which was described by experts as the best in many years. Today, she turned the tables on the Japanese to become the first Indian to win this Korea Super Series.
