Pusarla V. Sindhu Sets Sights on Return to Top Form

News | BWF World Tour

Pusarla V. Sindhu, the former women’s singles champion, was defeated by world No.1 Akane Yamaguchi at the Singapore Open 2023. Despite her emotional exit, Pusarla remains determined to regain her best form and make a strong comeback.

Reflecting on the Match

In a post-match interview, Pusarla expressed her gratitude for being back on the court after recovering from an injury. She acknowledged that the match could have gone either way, but she remains optimistic about her progress.

“Sometimes it’s really hard to lose close matches, but I’m going to come back stronger,” Pusarla said. “It’s important for me to learn from my mistakes and get back to my best form, especially in this Olympic qualification year.”

Road to Recovery

Pusarla’s journey back to top form has not been easy. After sustaining a hairline fracture in her left ankle during last year’s Commonwealth Games, she had to take a four-month break, the longest break she has had since 2015.

However, she has shown promising signs of improvement since her return. Despite a few early defeats, she finished as the runner-up at the Spain Masters in April and reached the semifinals of the Malaysia Masters just two weeks ago.

Looking Ahead

Pusarla acknowledges that she is close to reaching her top form again. With the right rhythm and continued dedication to her training, she believes she can make a strong comeback.
