We saw a tremendous fighting spirit from PV Sindhu right from the word go. It’s not so easy to come to the finals just like that. But Sindhu made it look so easy by the way she approached herself. She beat Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara in the quarter-finals and Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi in the semis to reach the BWF final but missed out on delivering the final scratch against Carolina Marin as she had to settle for the silver medal.
After the match, she vent out the frustration after surrendering in the final again. It was in 2015, she locked horns with Carolina Marin and the Spaniard got the better of Sindhu that time. “It is very frustrating to lose again. Last time also I had played in the finals. It is quite sad and I have to come back stronger and get back to the sessions and prepare for the next tournament,” said a Sindhu after the match.
Sindhu further spoke about the highs and lows of life. It’s important to turn up and respond straight away with wins. “Sometimes it is not your day, ups and downs will always be there and you have to always be stronger,” the Indian star further added.
The World No. 3, however, feels that she is happy that she came to the finals. According to her philosophy, winning and losing is part of life. “A bit sad because I was expecting a good one but overall a good match and I am happy I came to the finals and winning and losing are parts of life and I have to take it as it is,” the World No. 3 remarked.
Sindhu scripted history as she became the only Indian to have bagged 4 medals. She had won 2 bronze medals at the 2013 Guangzhou and 2014 Copenhagen editions. She had won silver in 2015 and in 2018 BWF Championship final.
