KUALA LUMPUR: Indian player PV Sindhu entered the Malaysian Masters Badminton women's singles final. In a three-set battle that lasted 88 minutes, the player defeated Thailand's Busan Ongbamrungphan 13-21, 21-16, 21-12 to enter the final.

Sindhu's opponent in the final is Chinese star Wang Shiyi. The player who lost the first set of the match 13-21 made a strong comeback. Sindhu secured the final by winning the second and third sets in the one and a half hour long match.
