Gilmour started with a bit of nerves making a service error as she began the proceedings but remained http://www.authenticcoloradorockies.com/Jake-Mcgee-Jersey neck-and-neck with Saina thereafter.
Saina with some good angled play opened up an 8-5 lead only for Gilmour to use her jump smash at the right moments to catch up with Saina and make it 8-8.
Gilmour upped her game and used angles to make Saina move around the court for each shot and staged a remarkable comeback taking six straight points after equalising to make it 14-8.
Saina, thereafter, changed the pace of her shots and got Gilmour to labour for points and Giancarlo Stanton Authentic Jersey crawled back to make it 12-14.
Gilmour hit right back at Saina and took control of the rallies to extend her lead to 16-12.
Just like she always does, Saina Nehwal fought back and used the drift and stayed patient through the rallies to take it to 16-17.
While at 19-19, Gilmour made an error in judgement to gift Saina the game point and Saina worked http://www.authenticmiamimarlins.com/Ichiro-Suzuki-Jersey her way around the court and took the game 21-19.
The second game remained extremely tight till Gilmour managed to target Saina's movement once more and went into the break with an 11-9 lead.Gilmour used her physical strength and agility well to force Saina closer to the net and raced ahead to 13-9.
Saina continued her progression though Gilmour kept targetting the corners and maintained her lead at 18-12.
Gilmour struggled to control the length of her shots as Saina inched closer to semi-finals with a 19-13 lead.
A beautiful return from Saina into the deep corner to Gilmour's serve gave her the match point. Gilmour saved two match points before Saina wrapped up the match and assured herself of a bronze medal.
Saina will next face Nozomi Okuhara, who beat Carolina Marin 21-18, 14-21, 21-15 on the court beside Saina.
India are now assured of two bronze medals after PV Sindhu earlier crushed Sun Yu of China 21-14, 21-9. Sindhu will be up against 19-year-old Chinese Chen Yufei, who won the Junior World Championships last year and beat Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand 14-21, 21-16, 21-12 to reach the semi-finals.
