There is also an elder sister of PV Sindhu, who is a doctor. The advantage of this was that PV Sindhu was never stopped for the game and PV Sindhu decided to separate from volleyball and make a career in badminton.
PV Sindhu had decided at the age of just 8 that she would make badminton her career. Since childhood, she was highly inspired by Pullela Gopichand, who won the All England Championship and used to belong from Hyderabad. It was a matter of luck that he later became the coach of PV Sindhu and in the year 2004, he also started taking training from his mentor Pullela Gopichand. There was a distance of 56 km in PV Sindhu’s home and sports academy, but still she used to wake up early in the morning and go to learn. He has had a lot of passion for the game from the beginning. That’s why she has told in an interview that when she was 21 years old, she left the mobile for 8 months at the behest of her coach because her coach had said that her mobile was becoming a distraction for her game.
