Sai Praneeth Bhamidipati of India took the bronze medal.

Women’s Singles

After being a mainstay in the World Championships since 2013, Pusarla V. Sindhu‘s talent lead her to the top position as she earned her first World Championship gold medal in Women’s Singles. She now has one gold medal, two silver medals, and two bronze medals in the category.
