India's PV Sindhu defeated China's He Bingjiao to enter into the final

New Delhi, Sep 16: Korea Open Superseries: India's PV Sindhu defeated China's He Bingjiao to enter into the final.

Olympic silver medallist P V Sindhu had progressed to the semifinals of women's singles but it was curtains for Sameer Verma in men's singles event at the USD 600,000 Korea Open Super Series, on Friday.

Sindhu, who had won the silver at the World Championship last month, recovered from a mid-game slump to stave off the challenge from World No. 19 Minatsu Mitani of Japan 21-19 16- 21 21-10 in a match that lasted 63 minutes.

The fifth seeded Indian, who had a 1-1 head-to-head record against the Japanese, will next face either third seed Sung Ji Hyun or China's He Bingjiao, seeded sixth at the SK Handball Stadium here.
