What’s the Reason behind Ace Indian Shuttler P.V Sindhu’s loss at All England Open Badminton Championship 2021?
After beating Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi and securing a position at All England open semifinals, P.V Sindhu lost to Thailand’s Pornpawee Chochuwong in the semifinals by 21-17, 21-9.
After losing her chance to win the All England Open championship, P.V Sindhu said, “I think it was her day; everything she was hitting was on the line; I just couldn’t do anything about it. Overall, I should’ve controlled my unforced errors; maybe things could’ve been different,”
“Everybody aims to be in the final, it’s over, for now, so I have to learn from my mistakes and take the positives. I don’t have a tournament for another month, so I have time to prepare and come back stronger,” Sindhu added.
P.V. Sindhu has been giving heroic performances at the World Badminton Championships since 2013, but she gave quite a mediocre-level performance at the All England Open semifinals. Though, there were hopes that Sindhu might take the winnings home as she played a terrific match against Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi to enter the semifinals.
The major reason behind Sindhu’s loss was that she barely got 14 hours to rest and prepare herself for the semifinals, as claimed by experts.
“If lactic acidosis sets in, there is a severe deprivation of oxygen to the brain, and carbon dioxide takes over. In such a situation, the thinking power and control over the game become haphazard,” said Dr. Satish Kudchadkar, a practitioner of sports medicine.
Due to lack of rest and preparation, Sindhu was unable to create the energy needed for a win. Even her movements around the courts were visibly slower.
Whatever the reason might be, P.V Sindhu did lose a golden chance of adding the win of All England Open Championship to her kitty.
