    Pusarla Venkata Sindhu to get Rs. 15 lakh from Badminton Association of India

    http://sports.ndtv.com/othersports/b...ation-of-india

    EXCERPTS:

    Badminton Association of India (BAI) president Akhilesh Das Gupta Sunday announced a cash reward of Rs.15 lakh for P.V. Sindhu for her bronze medal-winning performance at the World Championships in Guangzhou, China.

    "Sindhu's effort in China deserves all the accolades and we would be rewarding her with a cash prize of Rs.15 lakh as an appreciation for her efforts," Das Gupta said in a statement.

When sindhu faces chinese players, she is more confident and energetic. But when she faced Ratchanok, i missed her energy and confidence in her movements and shots. She is a quick learner. She will come back soon with a strategy to work out Ratchanok. Meanwhile In IBL, we can find many talents coming out . Many under-19 players are playing and they will gain experience and training to face top class players.
    So the conclusion is Sindhu cannot defend RI smashes, right? Exactly what I was saying she has to work on. Strategy is only a guide, it does not always end up as you envisioned it. Sindhu should focus on defense skills as it is a glaring weakness now. Whatever strategy she cooks up will not help to avoid this situation completely.

    I mean ratchanok shots are unpredictable that's why sindhu not able to move early like she did against the chinese

    Ok, RI is well known for her trickery. For the smashes Sindhu did not reach most of it even with her long reach.

    She should also play flatter against RI to limit the smashing opportunity.

    Anyway RI is going to be extra hard to beat. She seemed to have worked on her stamina problem as I saw no hint of it in the final.

    RI came on court with a definite strategy to tackle Sindhu who is famous for her aggression. She never gave sindhu any chance to attack. Inthanon is very deceptive. Sindhu's strategy completely flopped and when she lost confidence, she made many unforced errors which we never saw in the previous matches. RI's strategy was to keep pressure near the net(sindhu's patience lost here itself) and when she lifts it, RI didn't go for rally, instead she smashed directly down the line. Even if sindhu worked hard to return it, then again smash from RI. So, she did not give any chance for sindhu to work her plan. Sindhu's game is very good to tackle chinese players, but for RI, she should be more all rounder. RI has more experience than Sindhu. RI has met all the chinese players (Li xuerui, Wang yihan, wang shixian) for more than 5 times.At last , she found a way to beat Li Xuerui (the same strategy worked out for tackling li xuerui as well). Sindhu is in the senior circuit only for 1.5 to 2 years. Already, she was able to do what Saina could not.

    Note:
    I am worrying for Saina now. In her recent interview, when she was asked whether she was disappointed, she said that she has crossed that level ( she meant that more than that). Really feel for her . Hope she will come soon .

    Celebrate Sindhus World Championship bronze and then let her be

    http://www.firstpost.com/sports/cele...e-1024231.html

    PV Sindhu has just catapulted herself from the wilderness into the spotlight. Her brilliant giant-killing run at the World Championships already has people talking, tweeting, facebooking and generally going nuts on TV as well.

    And almost everyone wants the answer to one question: Is she better than Saina?

    To cut a long story short, for the answer to that question we need to go back to the India Super Series in April this year. The centre of attraction at the pre-tournament press conference was understandably the top seed Saina Nehwal. While everyone was crowding the London Olympic bronze medallist, chief national coach Pullela Gopichand was happy standing in one corner and chatting about his other prodigy PV Sindhu with a handful of journalists eager to know when we can see the lanky youngster show the results that will justify her potential.

    To their disappointment, Gopichand asked them to give Sindhu another two years as she was still growing and will need that much time to mature.

    Many felt that the former All England champion was just trying to play down the hype surrounding the Asian Junior champion and didnt really mean it.


    Sindhu celebrates a point at the World Cships. AFP

    But those who have known Gopichand over the years will know that the chief national coach doesnt really make statements without weighing the pros and cons of his words.

    What Gopichand actually meant was that Sindhu was just about 18 and was still growing physically and emotionally and will take some time to understand herself and her game better.
    There is no doubt about the talent that Sindhu possesses and since that chat, the Asian junior champion has won the Malaysian Grand Prix gold, reached the semifinals of a Super Series event and this week upset the applecart of defending world champion Yihan Wang and another Chinese star Shixian Wang to become first Indian womens singles player to win a medal in the BWF World Badminton Championship in her maiden appearance in the prestigious tournament.

    But the period has also corresponded with quite a few injury worries and she had to miss the entire Asian circuit in May and June due to it.
    In fact in the last one year, Sindhu has been laid low by knee injury a couple of times as her lanky frame puts quite a bit of pressure on her knees and the support staff at the Gopichand Badminton Academy is working very hard to help her bulk up a bit without losing any of her agility.

    This is precisely why Gopichand has been very careful with the number of tournaments Sindhu plays in a year. Last year following some knee trouble at the senior nationals in October, the chief coach pulled her out of the world junior championship despite the Indian being a runaway favourite to win the title. Most players will play with a niggle or two but Gopichand has been quick to draw the line with Sindhu he realises that this is a crucial phase in Sindhus growth as a badminton player and injuries cannot be allowed to derail the process.

    But in China, the youngster proved that when she is completely fit and has trained hard she has the ability to match the best in the world in speed and agility and she is only going to get better thanks to the efforts she is putting during training every day.
    Yes, she was outplayed in the semifinal by another youngster Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand but she did well in reaching the last four. The real challenge for her will be dealing with the expectations the entire nation would expect her to win every tournament she participates in.

    It is precisely why Gopichand was not willing to talk about a possible gold even after Sindhu had beaten the two Chinese stars to reach the World Championship semifinal and even tried to protect her from all the hype surrounding her victories by cutting down her communication from the outside world.

    To her benefit, Sindhu comes from a family which has seen the ups and downs of professional sport with both her parents being international volleyball players (her dad was even the captain). Also Gopichand is well aware of the growing pressure on the youngster and would have also started devising a strategy to use it to make her mentally stronger.

    But this is not an overnight process and just like the coach and the player we will also have to be patient as Sindhus results may oscillate between exceptional and not so impressive and should be looked at just as a development process for the youngster. Indeed, at this point it should not be Saina or Sindhu. Rather, it should be Saina and Sindhu. Together, they are doing India proud and together, they can push each other to get even better.

    One thing is sure. Sindhu has the potential to become the best in the world. And if we follow the timeline Gopichand has set for the 18-year-old, then this is just a beginning.
    Today, let us just celebrate the achievement of Sindhu and wish her all the best for the future.

    congratz for the WC bronze medal

    Sindhu famous for aggression? I certainly don't agree. RI is famous for that. You seem to think strategy is everything to winning the game. Strategy needs to be balanced with good attack, defense & mental skills and making least amount of mistakes. See how far Du PengYu's defense skills is taking him.

    As for Saina, she needs to shed weight to move faster. She need to decide what is important to her "Chocolates/Ice cream or Badminton"

    I predict by mid next year she will be giving Saina a big fight as the top WS player from India.
    All the best to her. She has progressed from losing in 3 sets to winning them.
    Now we need consistency of form.

    RI's game is more jerky. I doubt she'd last long without injuries.

    Do not forget that the WC bronze is given to the two defeated semifinalists. Sindhu thus did not have to fight for it against her Korean opponent.

    SN has to fight for the bronze medal in the last Olympics although she had an easy time as her SF Chinese opponent WX as good as 'gifted' to her as a result of injury.

    Saina was ready to fight in the court while Wang xin did not have fighting spirit so she left the court and went away. Atleast she could have atleast fought till last minute like Sayaka Sato and some others. She left the court. So , loss is announced . This is universal law. So, talking something like "gifted" etc is childish .. Atleast i want the same from singapore players as well to prospect their country's name.

    Either you are totally ignorant or you refused to accept the facts. Not surprising though as previous remarks from you had shown.

    http://sports.ndtv.com/cricket/video...s-241652-video

    "Saina Nehwal took the Olympic women's singles badminton bronze in rather disappointing circumstances as her Chinese opponent Xin Wang withdrew with injury. The Chinese was leading Saina 21-18, 1-0 before a knee injury forced her retirement."

    SN even lost the first game and trailing in the second when WX was forced to retire because of injury.

    Do you think WX would have given up so easily after taking G1? So SN's win is not conclusive. Chances are if WX is not injured SN would have lost.

    Well what else do you have to say? Childish?

    Hower SN's defeat of WC bronze medalist Sindhu in the ongoing IBL is conclusive, which showed Sindhu as being inconsisent despite SN's recent drop in form.
