With the way, Men’s team is playing apart from the game against Australia it seems that they are heading in right direction.
Taking about Badminton PV Sindhu she outclassed Denmark M Blichfeldt by 21-15 and 21-13 and will be next facing Yamaguchi in the quarterfinals round if she wins that she will be entering in semifinal round as Sindhu is touted as someone to win the Gold medal in Tokyo 2020 as Carolina Marin who was defending champion in Rio 2016 pulled out from this mega event due to injury.
PV Sindhu has been superb in the longest rallies in all three matches she has played so far in Olympics 2020 and all the matches has been one-sided competition where she hasn’t let any of her opponent to completely dominate her in any respective set which is a sign of Champion player.
