PV Sindhu aims for gold at World Championship this time
“It is one of the biggest tournaments and nobody is going to give it away easily. It is just about giving my best. Everybody is aiming for Tokyo 2020 and there are many good players and its not going to be easy.
The next big event for Sindhu will be the All England Championship, a tournament last won by her mentor and chief national coach Pullela Gopichand in 2001.
It would be a great chance for Sindhu to end India’s 18-year jinx at the tournament, considering three-time World Champion Carolina Marin is not playing due to the knee injury sustained during the Indonesia Masters final last month.
“Even though Carolina is not playing, it is not going to be easy. There are very good players from China, Japan, Thailand. The top-15 ranked players are on the same level,” Sindhu said.
“Sometimes you might play brilliantly, give more than 100 per cent, but might make few unforced errors. Sometimes your mind might not work, the strategy might not work,” she added.
