After China crown, Sindhu eyes Hong Kong high

After clinching her maiden Super Series Premier title at China Open, Olympic silver medallist PV Sindhu will now look to come up with another good show at the Hong Kong Open, starting on Tuesday, to qualify for next month’s Dubai World Super Series Finals.

A two-time bronze medallist at the World Championship, Sindhu had a fantastic season this year as she became the first Indian woman to win a silver at Olympics and then lifted her maiden Super Series title at Fuzhou, China on Sunday.

The winner of a Super Series Premier event wins 11000 ranking points and considering that Sindhu had lost in the second round at China Open and opening round at Hong Kong Open last year, she has a great chance of sneaking into the top eight Dubai Destination ranking if she can play well here.

Interestingly, if Sindhu (27,490 points) can come up with a good show then she might dislodge Saina Nehwal (35,420 points) who is currently at the eighth place at the Dubai Destination ranking and qualify for the prestigious event.
