As nothing comes easy and she knows that in order to win Gold she needs to start her preparation from now onwards and if she can win gold or for that matter even a medal in the upcoming Paris Olympics she will possibly go down in Indian sporting history as the athlete who three successive individual medals for India at Olympics which is considered as one of the biggest sporting events in the world.

“Well, I cannot think of a vacation right now as it is time to get into the preparations for a couple of major events scheduled in the next few months. I repeat learning is a continuous process, and I wish to be a near-complete player, working on a couple of areas too,” Sindhu told Sportstar.

“There is nothing like focussing on any specific area of my game. First, I should get a feel of how my body responds for the first couple of days and then plan out my on-court training schedule accordingly,” she said. “In terms of intensity of preparations, the efforts will always be there,” she added.

“I wouldn’t say World No.1 ranking is one of the immediate goals. But, if everything falls in place by doing well in some of the majors, it shouldn’t be out of reach,” she said.

“I am really pleased with my defence and fitness levels in the Tokyo Games. So, the emphasis will be on improving always,” she said.

She added that training is something she loves every bit of it and if she is not training she loves to spend time with her family.
