Lee's lackadaisical approach improved considerably thereafter and after leading 11-9 at the interval, he displayed some of the many stylish shots in his armoury to draw level and stay afloat in the high-intensity match, which was as much about elegance as sheer power.

Saina bounced back soon and seized control again.

Sindhu found her bearings after Saina had taken a 20-14 lead and closed it 18-20 but Saina brought her own brute force to fore with a smash targeting Sindhu's body which was simply unreturnable. But Saina was back in lead with a cross-court smash that Sindhu just could not reach.

Saina had given a miss to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, where current World Number 3 P V Sindhu had won the bronze medal. With the feat, Saina becomes the only shuttler to have won two singles gold at CWG.

35-year-old Lee now has six medals at the Commonwealth Games. With this bronze, India's medal tally increases to 60.
