In a message, the Minister said, the victory has helped Sindhu further to consolidate her position among top ranking women Badminton players of the world.

He said that victory of Sindhu at the tournament has once again underlined India's strong presence in the China Open as she is the third non-Chinese player to win the title in 30 years after another ace badminton star from India Saina Nehwal did it at an earlier occasion.

He had earlier tweeted congratulating Sindhu on her victory.

Sindhu was prompt in acknowledging the sports minister's greeting and replied him.

Sindhu had beaten Sun Yu of China in a thrilling three-game match in the finals on Sunday to win the China Open Super Series Premier title. She had reached the finals of Denmark Super Series last year.
