Last month, P.V. Sindhu and Nozomi Okuhara met in the final of the Badminton World Championships in Glasgow, and Okuhara eventually won out in what many hailed as one of the greatest women’s badminton games in the history of the sport. It lasted 110 minutes, the longest of the entire tournament, and all three sets were decided by just two points.

The defining moment of the match came at the end of the second set, which Sindhu won after a grueling 73 shot rally. Neither competitor could celebrate, let alone stand, after the back-and-forth.
