'Foreign coach's changes helped improve my game'
Mumbai: World champion P V Sindhu on Sunday said that working on the changes suggested by India's foreign badminton coach Kim Ji Hyun helped her a lot.
Olympic silver medallist Sindhu defeated Japan's Nozomi Okuhara in the final of the BWF World Championship recently.
Asked how Kim Ji Hyun's advice has impacted her game, she said, "Well it definitely had a lot (of impact) because she has been here for a few months.
"She had few changes in her mind and I think that really helped me. We worked on that, of course under the guidance of Gopi (P Gopichand) sir and it went very well. I have really improved a lot on skills and a lot more still to improve."
Sindhu was speaking after being felicitated by the Sahara India Pariwar at a suburban hotel for her recent achievement.
Asked whether the loss of the 2017 final (to Okuhara) played in her mind when she entered the court this time, the 24-year-old Sindhu replied in the negative.
"No I don't think it was playing (in my mind) and also I was very positive. It was just a fresh game for me. We have played a couple of times later as well so it was one of the fresh matches." According to Sindhu, being more aggressive and being fast on her feat did the trick for her in the World Championship.
