P.V. Sindhu is one of the best female badminton players ever and already a sports legend in India. She is also currently among the highest-paid female athletes worldwide – due to price money and of course her immense popularity in her home country.
The tall, slim lady with long, black hair is a sexy and hot appearance on court.There are rumours of her dating a British mens doubles player, but I will leave that topic open…
All about Pusarla Venkata Sindhu – Female Superstar from India
Full name: Pusarla Venkata Sindhu
Birth date: July 5th, 1995
Playing hand: Right-hander
PV Sindhu has had an incredibly successful career already and is not yet finished.
At the most important event in badminton she managed to achieve two medals already. A Silver medal in Rio 2016, when she lost the final to Carolina Marin. And a Bronze medal in Tokyo 2020, where she lost the semi final to Tai Tzu Ying. At her age it seems possible that she will still be able to go for another medal in Paris 2024. Maybe she can complete her medal set and add the Golden One. That would be spectacular.
BWF World Championships
In the second hightes tournament category she has been even mire successful. After two bronze and two silver medals (her finals loss against Nozomi Okuhara 2017 in Glasgow was one of the greatest womens singles matches of all times) Sindhu finally made it to the top of the podium in Basel 2019, when she beat Okuhara convincingly in the final.
BWF World Tour
A victory at the 2018 BWF World Tour Finals and three more Superseries Titles and several runner-ups round up her set of achievements.
Trademarks / Playing Style
Despite being quite tall with 1,79m, she moves very well around the court and I would actually not describe her attacking game as her best ability.
Of course she can score points with her hard and steep smashes. But to me its her great court coverage and defense, that make her stand out. With that long reach its tough to get the shuttle on the floor.
Additionally she is known for her incredible fighting spirit. She never gives up on any point, regardless of the score. Overall she is just a fantastic player.
Yonex Voltric Z-Force II (Check Price on Amazon)
Sindhu is using the Voltric Z-Force 2. A slightly head-heavy racket that provides incredible power and punch (which reflects in her playing style). But its certainly not for beginners, only advanced players will be able to handle it.
She is known for wearing long one-piece dresses by Yonex – often in yellow color or sometimes in green as well.
