New Delhi: India’s badmint-on star P.V. Sindhu, who made headlines after her win over Olympic gold medallist Li Xu-erui, draws inspiration from Saina Nehwal’s on-court performances and wants to be as successful as the world No. 3.
“She is a good player, she is very hard working. She has won so many tournaments, Super Series titles. Yes, her performance inspires me,” Sindhu said.
Currently ranked 19th, the 17-year-old skipped her sister’s wedding to play in the season-ending Syed Modi Grand Prix tournament, but faltered at the final hurdle.
Disappointed with her effort, Sindhu said she would look to start the new season on a high with some positive results in the Korea Open, beginning on Tuesday in Seoul.
“I will look to win the championship. The practice is going on well. I will give my best there to start the year on a bright note,” she said.
“Syed Modi was my maiden Grand Prix gold event final. I played well against Lindaweni Fanetrim, but I made a lot of errors. (PTI)
