India finished its campaign at the World Tour finals as both Shuttlers- PV Sindhu & Kidambi Srikanth played their final game today. PV Sindhu defeated Pornpawee Chochuwong of Thailand 21-18, 21-15 in her last Group B match of the BWF World Tour Finals in Bangkok on Friday. Kidambi Srikanth failed to open his account as he lost another close match against Ng Ka Long Angus of Hong Kong 21-12, 18-21, 19-21.
The victory, however, would give some respite for Sindhu as she struggled throughout the three-leg Asian tour in Bangkok.
Sindhu said that this victory will help her to believe in herself. “Well, I think it was a good finish. Actually, until yesterday I still had a chance. Unfortunately, the match with Tai went the other way, so I didn’t have a chance. Otherwise, it was a good game. For any athlete, losing two games is going to be hard to come back stronger too, but I think it’s very important from these wins to come back stronger and believe in yourself,” Sindhu told BWF website.
She added that she did not do anything different in this match. “I just played my game after yesterday’s upset. Today is a new day and a fresh start. These three tournaments haven’t gone as I had expected and there’s been a lot to learn. After a long gap, I was very excited to be back on court, I think it’s been a good thing. Now I’ll go back home, be happy, take some rest and come back stronger,” she added.
