PV Sindhu, the top player in Indian badminton, has delighted her fans with a series of electrifying performances throughout her career. The Indian star already has plenty of happy moments to look back on, whether it’s at the Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 Olympics, or the multiple Badminton World Championships – where PV Sindhu frequently brings out the best – or the other tour tournaments . Here’s a look at some of the games in which PV Sindhu has pushed herself to the limit while remaining steadfast in her pursuit of excellence. Saina Nehwal, who won the bronze medal in London 2012, was the center of Indian attention ahead of the Rio 2016 Olympics, which significantly reduced Sindhu’s expectations. Although Carolina Marin of Spain was on the other side of the pitch in the final and the Indians had progressed without losing a game, PV Sindhu wanted something out of the ordinary to wear the priceless gold medal around his neck.
PV Sindhu lost to Carolina Marin. After the final point of a 110-minute game, both shuttles struggled to stand. The badminton world made sure to stand up and salute two brave warriors, PV Sindhu and Nozomi Okuhara, for their participation in one of the greatest matches in the history of the sport. It was a match fit for the World Cup finals. While Okuhara was technically superior and often surprised her opponent with her racquet handling, PV Sindhu had her big jumps and lightning-fast returns that helped her earn much-needed points. Nozomi Okuhara won the match and PV Sindhu lost. One who excels in big game situations is PV Sindhu. And she has frequently demonstrated her unwavering determination through her performances at competitions such as the World Championships, World Tour Finals and the Olympics. However, there were times when the Indian ace struggled. And one such streak happened in 2018, when she spent 13 months not winning a championship while competing in seven finals. The winner was PV Sindhu.
And nothing summed it up better than her victory in the group stage of the competition over then-world number one Chinese Taipei Tai Tzu Ying, a player whom the Indian lost six games in a row. The highlight of PV Sindhu’s game was seen at the World Badminton Championships. Pusarla Venkata Sindhu is the most successful Indian woman to have competed in World Championships with gold, two silver and two bronze medals. And although PV Sindhu won her first medal, bronze at the competition in Copenhagen, Denmark, she had to wait another six years before taking home the gold in 2019. The Japanese opponent Okuhara, whom she last played two years ago for an hour and fifty minutes, once again got in her way. There was no such drama at the 2019 tournament, however, as PV Sindhu gave it her all despite losing the first point after a 22-shot rally. In one of the most lopsided finals in world history, she won the championship in 37 minutes.
