New Delhi: Olympic and World silver medallist PV Sindhu is eyeing the world no. 1 position next season but said she will not lose her sleep over rankings as consistent performances will automatically earn her the numero uno spot. Sindhu had achieved a career best Rank 2 in 2017 and is currently placed third on the charts.
“I want to see myself as world no 1 in the upcoming season. I am at 3 now and it depends on tournaments, if you play well, you will automatically get the ranking. So I am not thinking much about the rankings. I just have to play well and I know I will automatically be there,” said Sindhu after her PBL win.
The 22-year-old clinched titles at Syed Modi GPG, India Open, Korea Open, besides finishing second at World championship, Hong Kong Open and Dubai Super Series Finals this season. Sindhu feels the duration of matches in women’s singles have increased after her epic World Championship final against Nozomi Okuhara.
According to the new BWF schedule, India Open Super Series will be held by the end of January next year. Sindhu agreed more tournaments adds to the pressure but she will not complain and give her best.
