Wild statistics between Okuhara and Sindhu!

While we are all waiting for the quarterfinals to be played at the World Championships in Nanjing this Friday, we had a look at some very interesting statistics between Nozomi Okuhara and Pusarla V. Sindhu.

Most people probably remember the insanely exhausting final the two girls played at the World Championships last year in Glasgow – a match that lasted 1 hr 50 min and totally drained the players for energy.

Are we to expect another dramatic match like this when the Japanese and the Indian play the last quarterfinal on court 2 today? Or will they show more mercy to each other and play less than an hour? Only time can tell…

Anyway, here are the wild statistics from the two players’ previous matches with the Japanese mentioned first:
