Barring her game against Tai Tzu-Ying in the semi-finals, Sindhu has actually looked good so far at the Tokyo Olympics. In fact, even during the game against Tzu-Ying, she did perform in patches. Her signature smash was not seen much during the semi-finals game, but in the quarterfinal game, Sindhu was exceptional. She displayed better netplay and also optimised the advantage of having a good height. So, we think that Sindhu will win the game in two sets.
