It's just that I committed a few unforced errors which proved to be the difference," said the World No. 6 after laying the foundation stone for PV Sindhu Badminton Academy - to be set up by Heartfulness Institute - at Lalaji Memorial Omega International School on Wednesday. In her bid to hit top form, Sindhu is emphasizing on two key aspects - patience and shoring up her defence. "I have been working on my defence. Also, (I feel) I have to be little more patient. After a (long) rally, I end up committing a simple error where I have to give (away) points," said Sindhu. In the last 11 months, Sindhu has taken to Heartfulness - a meditation and relaxation technique - in order to remain calm and maintain optimum levels of concentration during the course of a game. "It will not give you instant success. Meditation techniques help you remain calm and keep you going. During matches you can get impatient, become angry and lose points. That's where the role of Heartfulness comes into play," said Sindhu. She is looking to put her best foot forward at the All England Open to be held in Birmingham from March 11 to 15. Sindhu feels there is very little that separates the world's top-15 players. "The top-15 players in the world are of the same standard. It all boils down to who plays well on that given day. If Plan A doesn't work on a given day, you must have Plan B in order to stay in the game," she said. With the Olympics just over five months away, the rise in expectations hasn't weighed Sindhu down. "From 2016 to 2020 - a lot of things have changed in my game and life. I am not taking any pressure (of expectations) and only focusing on working hard to win (a medal). Lot of people have said I have achieved a lot but I still feel this is only the beginning and there is a lot of more I want to (achieve)," said Sindhu.
