Double Olympic medallist P V Sindhu is hoping to make a comeback at the season-ending World Tour Finals in December after being forced to take a long break from the international circuit due to an ankle injury. One of the fittest sportspersons in the circuit, Sindhu had suffered a stress fracture on her left foot on way to her maiden Commonwealth Games gold medal in Birmingham in August.
“To take it (break) positively, I think this is the only time I would get a break because next year is going to be a hectic one with tournaments lined up one after another,” Sindhu, who is the ambassador of the Brave together campaign, told PTI.
“But on the negative side, I would say it’s unfortunate that I am taking a break. But it’s important because you have to take care of your body and make sure you’re completely fit and fine, you will have to maintain yourself to cope up with that level of play.
“It’s important to recover soon and address it in a way that you are, stronger than ever. It’s getting better and hopefully, I’ll be starting in December.”
Sindhu will miss the next two BWF World Tour Super 750 events — Denmark Open (Oct 18-23) and the French Open (Oct 25 to 30) this month.
