Sindhu's father hopeful of a good final match today

Hyderabad: A day after shuttler P V Sindhu stormed into the finals of the women's singles event at Rio Olympic Games, her father P V Ramana is hopeful of a good summit clash against Carolina Marin today and feels there's a 50-50 chance of her daughter winning the match.

The World No. 10 from Hyderabad will take on two-time World Champion and top seed, left-handed Carolina Marin of Spain in the summit clash this evening.

"It will be 50-50 chances (to win gold medal in finals today), because both of them are in good form. And it is left-right combination," Sindhu's father Ramana told PTI.

"And Carolina Marin must be having so many right handers to play. But these right handers will not be having so many left handers to play," he said.

"However, the way she (Sindhu) played yesterday, if she continues it will be a very good match," he said.

Sindhu scripted history last night by becoming the first Indian shuttler to reach the finals of the women's singles competition in the Olympics as she stunned Japan's Nozomi Okuhara in straight games to assure India of at least a silver medal.
