PV Sindhu race into semis; Sameer, Satwik-Chirag lose in Korea Open quarters

South Korea missed their only opportunity to win on a home court as Chang Ye Na and Lee So Hee were thrashed 21-11, 21-15 by China's Yu Xiaohan and Huang Yaqiong in the women's doubles final. With this win, the Olympic silver medallist turns to avenge her finals loss to Okuhara in Worlds Badminton Championship 2017 that happened last month in Glasgow, UK. Sindhu clinched her third Superseries title with her win in the Korean Super Series.

U.S. exhausting patience for diplomatic solution to North Korea crisis: McMaster, Haley
The test marked the twenty-first missile fired by North Korea over 14 tests in 2017. A White House reporter asked Haley about Trump's speech next week at the U.N.

The Indian shuttler also displayed extreme fitness levels when she won the longest rally of the match - 56 shots - towards the end of the match. Concentrating on the same strategy, the Japanese led 11-9 at the changeover. She wrested the game from Sindhu and even pocketed the second game in 22 minutes. She did not struggle much and she reached the final of Korean open badminton championship.

Nations meet in Montreal to discuss progress on climate-change deal
Trump, who once called climate change a "hoax", announced in June that his country will leave the the Paris Agreement . The White House quickly denied that it was changing its stance.

Sindhu and Okura played a neck-to-neck first game before Japanese dominated the second game. Going into the second game, she marched ahead, taking a 7-3 lead with a more focused approach at the net, attempting steady returns to Sindhu's drop shots. The Japanese ran away with points to push the match into a decider. Sindhu is preparing for the final on Japan's Nozomi Okuhara which will take place on Sunday. Playing thereafter with great patience and concentration, and staying with her rival in the energy-sapping rallies, the Indian clung on to the lead for the rest of the match. That she is capable of doing this against any player now on the circuit, means India is looking at a potential world beater as has never been seen over a long time in Indian sport. However, two wide shots once again spoilt Bingjiao's run as Sindhu held the advantage for the third time at the interval.
