Sadio Mane positive despite Liverpool's draw against Sevilla
The Reds have a world class attack with the likes of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to call upon. But I don't think I had any influence on the decision of the ref.

Sindhu suddenly hit a bad patch as two wide shots and one of her returns were buried in the net, giving the Chinese a 20-16 advantage.

"In the third set, even though I was ahead, she came back". Though the Japanese put up a great contest and fight, Sindhu always maintained a good amount lead throughout the final game which helped her immensely.

Okuhara attempted to tire Sindhu again with the longest rally of the match lasting 56 shots. Sindhu has a 3-5 win-loss record against the world No.7.

Star Indian badminton player PV Sindhu on Friday continued her winning spree, reserving a spot in the Korean Open semi-finals by beating her Japanese rival Minatsu Mitani in the quarter-finals of the women's singles in Seoul.

It now remains to be seen if Sindhu can replicate this level of determination and resolve on Okuhara's home territory, as the badminton circus moves to Tokyo for the Japan Open Superseries championships starting on Tuesday. In Korea, she proved she was chipping away at whatever flaws that held her back from becoming India's rare but bonafide world beater.
