In a mouth-watering all India final in Women's Singles in the 21st Commonwealth Games, Saina Nehwal defeated PV Sindhu in an emphatic style to clinch gold. The last time these two shuttlers met in the final of an event was at last year's National Badminton Championships where Saina won 21-17, 27-25 to clinch her third title.

The CWG 2018 badminton singles final will be played between PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal on Sunday, April 15, 2018. Sindhu, on her part, was motivated enough to cruise a comeback but Saina was simply too hot to handle, hardly allowing Sindhu an inch of space to breath.

In a spectacular turn of events, the women's singles final of the 2018 Commonwealth Games will be an all-India affair, which is a first in a major worldwide event.

Sindhu started with a slender 11-10 lead midway into her first game, before extending the score to 19-15.

However, three-time Olympic silver medallist Lee Chong Wei prevented an all-Indian men's singles clash by getting the better of HS Prannoy 21-16 9-21 21-14 in the other semi-final. The win meant that she won all her 12 matches in Gold Coast and stayed unbeaten throughout in the tournament. The 28-year-old defeated her fellow compatriot in straight games (21-18, 23-21) to take home her second Commonwealth Gold, having won one in the 2010 CWG in Delhi.

Another long rally followed by yet another long hit by Sindhu saw Saina reach game and match point at 21-20. She was able to convert her aggression into points, going into the mid-break of the first game with a handy 11-6 lead.
