P.V. Sindhu completed her education at Auxilium High School and at Saint Ann’s College for Women, Hyderabad. Though Sindhu’s family was in Volleyball she decided to opt for badminton. She was inspired by the success of Pullela Gopichand who was the champion of All England Open Badminton Champion in 2001. She started playing badminton at the age of eight and never stopped since. She was first trained by her railway institute coach Mehboob Ali and then she soon joined Pullela Gopichand’s Badminton Academy.
Let’s dive deep into P.V.
