#PVSindhu so let's not go down the "She Crashed out of the tournament" route. Someone played better than her on the day but it's 2 #BWFWorldChampionships finals in a row. She'll get there."

Marin was also praised for her performance and the twiteratti congratulated her on her historic win.
Congrats @CarolinaMarin. Marin didnt come to a single final this year except Euros. But once again proved how well prepared she comes for the only tournaments that really matter - Olympics and WCHs. Becomes the first WS player to win 3 world titles. Still proud of you @Pvsindhu1— Viren Rasquinha (@virenrasquinha) August 5, 2018
Marin was like a runaway train today. So fast, so aggressive. Dosen’t give her opponent a moment to breathe or think or change things - reminds me of the Australian hockey team in their prime. #BWFWorldChampionships2018— Viren Rasquinha (@virenrasquinha) August 5, 2018
