Singapore, May 30: She was on a roll. She replicated her old magic, smart moves, quick reflexes and power in the first round of Singapore Open BWF Super 750 Badminton tournament.

But two-time Olympic medallist Indian star shuttler PV Sindhu's Singapore Open campaign ended in the second round after losing to familiar foe Carolina Marin of Spain, here on Thursday.

World No 12 Sindhu suffered a 21-13, 11-21, 20-22 hard-fought loss in the second round of the BWF Super 750 Badminton tournament.

Earlier, the Indian ace defeated world No. 21 Line Hojmark Kjaersfeldt of Denmark 21-12, 22-20 in the opening round to set up a meeting with former Olympic champion Marin.

The two shuttlers famously faced each other in the final of the Rio 2016 Olympics where the Spaniard emerged victorious

With a win on Thursday, Marin extended her head-to-head record over Sindhu to 12-5.

With Paris Olympics nearing Sindhu is evidently struggling for consistency. If she does not get back her old rhythm soon, she may have to struggle in the Olympics as well.  (With IANS support)
