Sindhu sets her eyes on Super Series

Sindhu sets her eyes on Super Series

Expressing happiness over defending the Macau Open, ace shuttler P V Sindhu on Tuesday hoped to keep the momentum going and continue the successful run in the new year.

“I am happy for having won the Macau Open, at the end of the year. Overall, I have done well (this year). I hope I will get more victories in the coming year,” Sindhu told reporters on her return home.

Sindhu expressed delight for having done well in the World Championship and Asian Games this year.

As for not being able to clinch a Super Series title, she said it is not always the same every time.

“It is not the same game every time. It depends on that day. I wish I will get that (Super Series title) one day,” she said.

Sindhu underlined that she would need to put in hard work to take on tough players in the increasingly competitive international circuit, noting that several shuttlers from Japan and South Korea, besides China, are doing very well.

Sindhu said she would play in the Syed Modi Tournament and other important events next year, which will also be the Olympics qualifying year. To a question, she said shuttlers, including Saina Nehwal, had different styles of playing against top-ranked shuttlers from China and other countries.

Meanwhile, Chief National Coach P Gopichand was also happy that Sindhu was able to round off the year with a win.

Noting that different countries are trying hard to do well in international competition, he said Indians cannot afford to relax and warned against complacency.
