PV Sindhu has become the new face of badminton after she made our country proud during the Rio Olympics. She then won a number of medals in the various championships and is now again heading to play the World Championship.
According to reports, PV Sindhu might have to upstage defending champion and familiar foe Nozomi Okuhara as the two finalists of the previous edition are drawn to meet in the quarterfinals of the World Championship, to be held from July 30 to August 5 in Nanjing, China.
Memories of PV Sindhu and Nozomi Okuhara battling in one of the greatest matches of all time during the summit clash in Glasgow last year is still fresh in the minds of people.
Okuhara, who was bothered by a knee injury in the latter half of last season, outplayed Sindhu last week in the finals of Thailand Open and the Indian will have her task cut out as she is expected to meet the world no. 8 again in the quarterfinals in Nanjing.
Two-time Commonwealth Games champion Saina Nehwal, who won a silver in 2015 edition and a bronze at Glasgow, will have to battle past 2013 champion Ratchanok Inthanon of Thailand and Olympic champion Carolina Marin, whom she is expected to meet in the third round and quarters respectively.
We wish PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal good luck for their matches and we are sure that they will make the country proud as they always do. Stay tuned to Laughing Colours for latest updates on PV Sindhu's match and everything about sports.
