PV Sindhu, the former World No.2 and reigning World Champion, said that she won’t be returning to the Pullela Gopichand Academy and continue to train at the Gachibowli Stadium.
The World Champion prefers to train in the Gachibowli stadium as it gives her the feel of playing in the large stadiums and has a match-like feel.
“See, when we have a facility of international standard why not use that. If you want to compete against the best players you have to ensure that everything is perfect in training and build up to those events.
“Wherever we go out to play any major event we do so in bigger stadiums. There are a lot of facilities in Gachibowli where I’m training now.
“It is a good international stadium and I’m making sure I get used to those big stadiums before going to Tokyo,” Sindhu explained, adding that the ‘AC draft’ will be akin to what she will experience in Tokyo.
“Park’s personal attention has helped a lot. He is working on my techniques and skills. We are improving every day. I’m very thankful he’s motivating me all the time.
“As a coach, he knows what is going on in my head. He has helped me a lot in improving mentally and physically. Experience-wise also I’ve improved a lot,” said the 25-year-old PV Sindhu.
“There are a lot of good players in the circuit, from Tai Tzu-Ying to Ratchanok Intanon. It’s unfortunate that Carolina won’t be a part of the Games. But, I feel everybody will give their 100 percent.”
