Indian ace shuttler PV Sindhu is in the spotlight recently as she barged into the finals of the Badminton World Championships. She showcased tremendous character on the track as she defeated Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi in the semis.
PV Sindhi won 21-16, 24-22 to seal the big deal as the match lasted for around 53 minutes. In 2013, she became the first Indian women’s singles player to win a medal in the mega tournament. The competition will now be getting tougher as Sindhu will lock horns with her fierce rival Carolina Marin.
Sindhi has a wide range of experience playing in the crunch situations of the game. She has previously won 2 bronze medals and a silver medal from her 3 appearances in the mega event. It will be quite interesting to see how PV Sindhu would go about her business in the final. She has a good chance to win a gold medal and we will have to wait and watch.
The Chief National coach Gopichand stressed the fact that Sindhu got much better and sorted out her woes this time around. “Sindhu played the down-the-line drops more than the cross-court drops which had ironically gotten her into trouble last year,” Gopichand explained.
