Indian women’s badminton star PV Sindhu won the Silver medal in the singles category at the Rio Olympics 2016.
This time too, Sindhu has qualified for the Tokyo Olympics and is seen as a medal contender, especially after Spain’s Carolina Marin withdrew from the Olympics with an injury.
However, former India doubles player Jwala Gutta feels that Sindhu will be under pressure in the Tokyo Olympics this year, and hence it will not be easy for her to repeat the success of the last Olympics.
“I hope that she gets a medal. There is going to be more pressure than last time on Sindhu. In Rio, the circumstances were completely different for Sindhu, now the situation has completely changed, the focus is more on her and it depends on her how she takes this pressure. I hope she takes it positively. Rio wasn’t easy but Tokyo definitely won’t be easy. Everybody knows her game, everybody watched her,” said former doubles player Jwala Gutta.
