Rio Olympics silver medallist PV Sindhu feels she would need to give her 100 regardless of the absence of the reigning Olympic Champion, Carolina Marin so as to win the ladies’ singles title for the All England Championship to be held from March 6 onwards.
Marin, ruling titleholder, will be out of activity for somewhere around a half year after she endured leg injury in the Indonesia Masters final against Saina Nehwal.
Nehwal’s previous mentor Vimal Kumar had commented that the Spaniard’s absence implied Sindhu and Nehwal were both in with a decent shot to win the All England title, yet Sindhu doesn’t think so.
Sindhu hopes for Marin’s speedy recovery
The Hyderabad girl, while talking at an occasion in Mumbai on Thursday, said, “She (Marin) had a knee medical procedure. Certainly a miserable minute, yet wounds are a piece of life. Unquestionably, she will return more stronger. I hope for a fast recovery (for Marin).”
Sindhu rushed to call attention to Marin’s misfortune and stated that it can be anybody’s gain and not just hers. She included that there is a lot of rivalry as of now and every player brings their very own style and test. Thus, one’s absence can’t be a major driving force for other people!
The star Indian shuttler further stated, “I can’t state it is a decent shot. Certainly, it won’t be simple. Since as I said the best 10 to 15 players are of a similar standard. On the off chance that one just goes off (not contending), you can’t imagine that it will be an easy draw or it will be a cakewalk. No! Every match is similarly intense and tough on the grounds because every player has an alternate style of play. Presently the Chinese are doing truly well – Chen Yufei, H E Bingjiao, and from Korea Sung Ji Hyun, and Ratchanok Intanon (from Thailand) are doing really well. So there are two or three players from each nation who are doing truly well.”
Sindhu’s arrangements for 2019
Post finishing 2018 on a high subsequent to winning the World Tour Finals, Sindhu is aiming to win some more Super Series titles.
“I am extremely happy as 2018 has finished on a decent note. Be that as it may, 2018 is finished, presently it is 2019. It is a fresh year, new year and new goals, and I trust that I will simply put forth a strong effort and just play my game and improve a lot more. Certainly, need to win some of the Super Series, keep myself fit and healthy and prepare well. Nothing specific. I am very sure however I shouldn’t be careless in that way, thinking that I can win against anyone,” she reacted to a question about her plans for 2019.
“I think on that specific day, whoever plays well and gives their best is the champ. I feel the best 1 to 10 players are of a similar standard on the world. Each point is critical. You can’t feel that this opponent is easy to play against, can simply play lightly toward the beginning and after that get up to speed,” Sindhu concluded.
