India is a sports-loving country. With an increase in the use of the internet, awareness of people in sports like Badminton has increased after Cricket. All thanks to sports stars like PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal, because of their achievements, people noticed the sport and even started playing them locally as kids played cricket regularly.
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.
With two bronze medals in 2013 and 2014 and a silver last year, Sindhu has an impressive record at the World Championship.
Sindhu lost 21-19, 21-10 in the final and had to settle for a silver medal for the second straight time in World Championships, while Marin won the Gold medal.
"It is very frustrating to lose again. Last time also I had played in the finals. It is quite sad and I have to come back stronger and get back to the sessions and prepare for the next tournament," said a dejected Sindhu.
Since 2016, it is Sindhu's eighth loss in major finals, including defeats at Rio Olympics, Hong Kong Open (2017, 2018), Super Series Final (2017), India Open (2018) and Thailand Open (2018).
"Sometimes it is not your day, ups and downs will always be there and you have to always be stronger," the Indian star further added.
"A bit sad because I was expecting a good one but overall a good match and I am happy I came to the finals and winning and losing are parts of life and I have to take it as it is," the World No. 3 remarked.
"Carolina has that speed and she is very aggressive. She played very fast and quick paced during the tournament. I was prepared for her pace game," Sindhu said about the Rio Olympic gold medallist.
"I think overall, she played much better. If I could have won the first game it could have been different. In the second game, I made too many errors, my smashes were going out. I can just say it was not my day," Sindhu concluded.
We are proud of PV Sindhu for winning the Silver medal. Stay tuned to Laughing Colours for the latest sports news and updates.
