Former world champion Sindhu started the match well, but sixth seed Goh Jin Wei was trailing by just two points. Goh Jin Wei then used his skillful drop shots to upset PV Sindhu and took the first lead in the match at 16-15.
The Indian ace tried to come back using his height to create an angle, but Goh Jin Wei created a flurry of punches in the opening game. Sindhu stepped up his game to defeat Goh Jin Wei and took an 11-8 lead at the second break.
This will be Sindhu’s third consecutive semi-final at the Commonwealth Games. He won bronze and silver medals in the 2014 and 2018 seasons. The 27-year-old will now face fourth seed Yeo Jia Min of Singapore for a place in the final.
World Championships silver medalist Kidambi Srikanth and India’s top-ranked men’s badminton player Lakshya Sen will play in the men’s singles badminton event later in the day.
