Pusarla Venkata Sindhu Biography
P V Ramana and P Vijaya Sindhu raised their child in Hyderabad, India. Rajana, who works for Indian Railways, is from Nirmal, Telangana while Vijaya comes from Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh. Her parents were both national-level volleyball players. Ramana, her father, won the Arjuna Award in 2000 for his outstanding contribution to the sport of volleyball during the Asian Games in Seoul in 1986.
Hyderabad, Telangana, is where Sindhu lives. Her educational background includes Auxilium High School, Hyderabad, and St. Ann’s College for Women, Hyderabad. Despite having parents who played volleyball professionally, she chose badminton as a sport due to Pullela Gopichand’s success at the 2001 All England Open Badminton Championship. When she was eight years old, she began to play badminton. At the Indian Railway Institute of Signal Engineering and Telecommunications in Secunderabad, she first learned the basics of badminton under Mehboob Ali’s guidance. In a few years, she left for Pullela Gopichand’s Badminton Academy.
After joining Gopichand’s badminton academy, Sindhu won several titles. Gopichand agreed with this correspondent when he said, “the most striking feature of Sindhu’s game is her attitude and the never-say-die spirit.” She won both the doubles title and the singles title at the Ambuja Cement All India rankings in the under-10 year category at the 5th Servo All India ranking. A leader in the under-13 category, she won the singles title at the Sub-juniors in Pondicherry and the doubles titles at the Krishna Khaitan All India Tournament, the Sub-Junior Nationals, and the All India Ranking in Pune. At the 51st National State Games in India, she won the gold medal for the under-14 team as well. After parting ways with Gopichand, she chose South Korean coach Park Tae-sang.
