After the change of ends, Sindhu started from where she left in the first game and opened up a 5-2 lead and it seemed nearly certain that she would not have to wait much to wrap up the match.
The home favourite will take on Carolina Marin in a repeat of the Olympic gold medal match.
"Today, I couldn't play my natural game". She began dominating the first game initially and won six consecutive points to lead 6-1. "It was my day as I made fewer mistakes than my rival".
"So, I was prepared from the first point itself". Most recently, she recorded two victories over Sung in India's Premier Badminton League, albeit with that league's system of 11-point games.
Sindhu started cheerfully in the front of home crowd as she sealed the first game by 21-19 in a hard-fought 22-minute-stretched game.

Police chief Khalid said the North Korean embassy had at first confirmed the identity, but changed its stance the next day. Malaysian officials said they had the right to conduct an autopsy with the death happening on its land.
"But it will be a new game, new conditions, new style". I got some injury after that, had to leave some tournaments.
While Marin had defeated Sindhu 19-21, 21-12, 21-15 in the final of the Rio Olympics, what worked in Sindhu's favour is the fact that her performance after the Olympics has been much better than Marin. Her defence was also top notch as she made returns easily and frustrated Marin. Sindhu kep her never intact and her confidence high as she smashed and maneuvered her way to a historic 21-16 scoreline, to wrap up the match in straights games.
Crediting chief national coach Pullela Gopichand for her win, Sindhu said, "Initially in other matches he sat in the crowd and used to cheer for me". Marin then bagged some points for herself as the scorecard read 9-7.
Sindhu came prepared for a long match. But Sindhu fought her way back and took five straight points to make it 10-6. But Sindhu employed some superb backhand shots and smashes to win the next three points and the game. And at the midway break, the Indian held an 11-4 lead. While, SIndhu, considering her recent form, will start the clash as favourite, Marin, with her never-say-die attitude, can be unsafe.
In the decider, Sindhu looked determined from the start. The Korean failed to deal with the power and placement of Sindhu's returns as her errors kept creping in.
