Pusarla Venkat Sindhu, the 20-year old ace Indian badminton player who made a hat-trick by clinching Macao Open Super Series championship on Saturday revealed how she could regain her mental strength during a five-month lay-off due to severe leg injury in the early of this year.

Sindhu, speaking over phone from Malang, Indonesia where she will be participating in the Indonesia Open Super Series championship, said, “I had a severe leg fracture in January this year. And I was completely out of the court for around five months. Even I needed wheelchair to move around in my home. During that painful time, Gopi sir (Gopichand) used to come to our home often. And he used to advise me to watch the video clippings of my match winning performances. I followed his words and saw my old matches that I had won or I used to watch those matches where despite having lost I produced excellent performance. And today, after winning Macao Open for the third consecutive time, I can realize that how that valuable advice from Gopi sir had helped me to regain my mental strength.”

 

Sindhu is also happy with her performance in the Denmark Open where she reached the finals after coming back from injury as well as she is also happy with her show in the Japan Open where she stunned current Olympics gold medalist Li Xuerui.

The ace shuttler is also grateful to Olympic Gold Quest, the organization that has been sponsoring Sindhu for last few months.
