PV Sindhu heads back to SAI Gopichand Academy

HYDERABAD: Nine months after deciding to train one after the other, PV Sindhu is back to coaching on the identical academy as Saina Nehwal.

In June 2018, Sindhu had requested leader trainer Pullela Gopichand to train her at a distinct venue. Gopi obliged and began coaching Sindhu on the Pullela Gopichand Badminton Academy whilst Saina and different senior shuttlers like Kidambi Srikanth practised on the SAI Gopichand Academy, which is a kilometre away.

If that move - to train on my own - was spurred by means of her setbacks remaining yr, this yr's All England opposite, the place she succumbed within the first spherical, seems to have pushed Sindhu to go back to the SAI Gopichand Academy.

Confirming the advance, Sindhu advised NewsTread on Friday that she has determined to move back within the interest of her career.

"Yes, I started training at SAI Academy. With the new coaches we have, I'm sure it'll help my game," said Sindhu, who does her health coaching on the Suchitra Badminton Academy.

New Korean trainer Park Tae Sang joined the Indian camp just lately. Women's singles trainer Kim Ji Hyun, also from Korea, will arrive in a few days. Doubles trainer Flandy Limpele from Indonesia has also joined the academy.

'Confident of doing neatly'

Though dissatisfied with the first spherical loss towards Ji Hyun Sung on the All England, Sindhu was confident of a powerful comeback. "Obviously the loss was disappointing. I played well in that game but made some mistakes. But I have come out of that and will focus on the next few important tournaments this year. I am confident of doing well this year," Sindhu said.
