Having won her first Super Series title the previous week in China, PV Sindhu advanced to the semifinals of the Hong Kong Open Super Series where she will face Hong Kongs Cheung Ngan Yi, who beat Saina Nehwal in the quarterfinals. 2016 has already proved to be a career defining year for Sindhu as she became the first Indian woman to win a silver at the Olympics, where she lost to Spains Carolina Marin in the final.By reaching the semifinals in Hong Kong and on the back of her win in China last week, Sindhu has confirmed a spot in the year ending Super Series finals in Dubai, featuring an elite field of eight playersAs Sindhu gets ready for her second successive super series semifinal, here are five things to watch out for in the the battle between the two.?Head to headSindhu has won both her previous encounters against Cheung. Their first meeting came at the Malaysian Grand Prix Gold in 2013, where Sindhu won 11-21, 21-18, 21-10. Sindhu also defeated Cheung at the Badminton Asia Championships in 2014, winning 21-15, 15-21, 21-18.Recent recordHowever, Cheung is a much improved player since then. She was ranked 73rd in the world at the beginning of 2015. Sindhu was ranked 11 at that stage. While Sindhu is currently ranked 9th in the world, Cheung has risen to world number 26.Form this tournamentSindhu has only dropped one game in her three matches in the tournament. On the other hand, Cheung has played two gruelling three game matches in the last two rounds.?On-court strategyThe key for Sindhu will be to control the pace of the match as Saina did in the second game of the quarterfinal. While Cheung is an excellent mover, she struggled to match Sainas power game in the quarterfinal. Sindhu will need to control the rallies from the back of the court as Cheung showed that she was adept at the net and mixed up slices with smashes down the line against Saina.Big match experienceSindhu has a clear edge in this department as Cheung will be appearing in only her second Super Series semifinal. Other than winning the silver in Rio, Sindhu has won bronze at the World Championships in 2013 and 2014. She also won the China Open Super Series last week and finished second at the Denmark Open Super Series last year.Schedule and broadcast infoWhen: 5:30 PM (Approx)Where: Star Sports 4 & Star Sports 4 HD Authentic Soccer Jerseys .

ATHENS, Ga. -- For all those who might think hes trying to turn Georgia into Alabama East, Kirby Smart would like to point out that hes not calling up Nick Saban every day for advice.Coach Saban has to get ready for his game, Smart said. Im getting ready for North Carolina.No. 18 Georgia will begin a new era Saturday when it opens the season right down the road in Atlanta, taking on the 22nd-ranked Tar Heels in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game.For the first time in 15 years, the Bulldogs are breaking in a new coach.After dumping Mark Richt, Georgia turned to Sabans longtime defensive coordinator, hoping Smart can replicate the sort of success his mentor has produced in Tuscaloosa.Smart has brought along many of things he learned at Alabama, from holding his weekly news conference on Monday instead of Tuesday to making freshmen and assistant coaches off-limits to the media.And, like Saban, the new Bulldogs coach is reticent about revealing a whole lot of information, such as who the starting quarterback will be in just a few days. Freshman Jacob Eason would appear to have the inside track, but Smart insisted that senior Greyson Lambert, last years starter, was still in the mix.No starter has been named, Smart told reporters, in a brusque tone that wouldve made Saban proud. Well let you guys know.Good luck trying to figure out the rest of the lineup, as well.On the depth chart released Monday, 16 other positions still listed two potential starters. The most common word on the list was or.When your mom and dad read the paper, they like to know their sons are on the roster, Smart said. Weve got a lot of great competition at a lot of positions. A lot of guys deserve `ors.In addition to quarterback, there will be plenty of attention directed toward the tailback position. Nick Chubb was one of the nations top runners until he went down last season with a gruesome knee injury.Now, just 10 months later, hes healed and fully cleared to play. Smart said there wont be any need to limit his carries, like one might do with a pitcher coming back from an arm injury.ddddddddddddHes scrimmaged and done a lot of things, the coach said. Hes had a lot of practices where hes carried it more than five to seven times, and we feel good about Nick. He feels great. Hes ready to go. So he wont technically be on a pitch count by any means.North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said it doesnt really matter who the Bulldogs decide to play.I dont think theres been a year that Georgia hasnt been in the top 10 in the recruiting rankings, he said. I mean, theyve got players. Theres going to be a tailback back there that can go. Theres going to be an offensive line that can go. Theres going to be a quarterback, whoever it is, he can go. Same thing on defense.Smart downplayed any attempt to turn the focus of the opener on himself, even though its clear the Bulldog faithful are counting on nothing less than an SEC East version of the powerhouse that Saban has built while winning four national titles in the last eight years at Alabama.Sure, Richt captured a pair of Southeastern Conference titles and had the second-most wins of any coach in school history, but Georgia has long been viewed as a bit of an underachieving program given the amount of talent that has gone on to play in the NFL.The 40-year-old Smart is out to change that. While hes never been a head coach, there is no lack of bravado heading into his debut.The amount of pressure that Ive put on myself as a defensive coordinator for the last 10, 11 years, I really believe theres a lot more decisions that go into that position than the head coach, he said. Not week to week, absolutely not. How we practice, who plays quarterback, all thats a whole different story. But when it comes to game day, I think the confidence in what weve done up to this point allows me to be comfortable with where we are.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .
