P V Sindhu created history by winning the Indian Open 2017. She has defeated her nemesis World No.1 player Carolina Marin of Denmark who has defeated Sindhu in Rio Olympics Finals. The win came over in just 47 minutes and this would emulate the 21 year old to climb to No.2 in World Ranking.
Only Saina Nehwal had a better ranking prior when she climbed to World No.1 in the rankings in early 2016. It is interesting to note that PV Sindhu had defeated Saina Nehwal in the Quarter Finals.
