Pusarla Venkata Sindhu Profile

The double Olympic medallist has found the going tough ever since returning from a five-month long lay-off following an ankle injury en-route to the Commonwealth Games gold last August. However, she will aim to put her best foot forward in the Asian Games.

Sindhu claimed her first Indian Open title in 2017 after defeating Carolina Marin in straight games. She later won a gold medal in the BWF World Championship in 2019 by defeating Japan's Nozomi Okuhara in a one-sided final which lasted for just 36 minutes. She rose to new stardom as she remains the only Indian to win the BWF World Championship title.

Sindhu rose to limelight after she broke into the top 20 of the Badminton World Federation rankings in 2012.
