India had a mixed day at the World Badminton Championships, with 2016 Olympic silver medallist PV Sindhu entering the final, while Saina Nehwal lost in the women's singles semi-finals in Glasgow on Saturday.

Fourth seed Sindhu crushed Chinese ninth seed Chen Yufei of China 21-13, 21-10 in 48 minutes in a superlative display.

Sindhu, a two-time World Championships bronze medallist, dominated her younger opponent from the beginning, not allowing the reigning world junior champion to settle in.

Playing aggressively, Sindhu rattled 19-year-old Yufei with her barrage of attacking strokes.

Sindhu will now take on Japanese seventh seed Nozomi Okuhara in the final on Sunday. Okuhara defeated 2012 Olympic bronze medallist Saina Nehwa in the first semi-final earlier on Saturday.
 
Sindhu, 22, and Okuhara, 22, have won three games apiece from six outings between them and in the Japanese, the Hyderabadi faces an opponent that likes to play fast-paced shuttle.
