Sindhu PV ready for the high season 2022 –

Badminton News: It’s been two busy months to wrap up 2021 for two-time Olympic champion PV Sindhu. The 26-year-old has covered thousands of kilometers in the past few months jumping from Odense to Paris in October and then to Bali in November before finishing the run in Huelva, Spain earlier this month.

But the New Year will be a busier one for PV Sindhu as it kicks off with the India Open in New Delhi on January 11th. In addition to the regular tournaments, two major events will take place this year, namely the Commonwealth Games from July and the Asian Games in September, which represent a solid badminton calendar.

“The last few months have been very busy, but also important in terms of rankings and seeding. So I bring my fitness trainer with me all the time to keep me fit between games, ”said the number 7 in the world, who was in town for a promotional event.

“We will have an ongoing tournament in 2022 as well. But to keep your shape you need to choose what to play with. I’ll do it after talking to my coach and team, ”added Sindhu, who took bronze in Tokyo 2020 and silver in the recent World Tour Finals.

The Indian badminton star is also looking forward to the Asian Games in 2022.

“It’s always been a difficult thing because all the top Asian players who have done well lately will be there. We have to give our maximum from the first half and it won’t be an easy game.”

A mistake by PV Sindhu later that year was her early retirement from the BWF World Championships in the quarter-finals against Tai Tzu Ying, her fifth loss in a row against the currently better-playing number 1 in the world.

“You have to develop a strategy for every player. Tai Tzu Ying was an experienced player, while someone like An Se-young or Akane Yamaguchi was different. The standard of the top 10 players is almost the same and a lot depends on who does better that day, “Sindhu said.
