Last year, Sindhu won the Syed Modi International, Swiss Open, and Singapore Open titles, making it her best-ever BWF World Tour season in terms of the number of tournaments won. She also won the women's singles gold at the Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham, her first Commonwealth Games title. But a stress fracture in her left foot in August forced her out of the remainder of the season. Sindhu is currently ranked number nine in the world rankings for women's singles players. She is all set to participate in the Asia Mixed Team Championships.

However, Sindhu returned to the game in January at the Malaysia Open but was eliminated in the first round after losing to arch-rival Carolina Marin. In the same month, she suffered another early round exit at the India Open. Following this, she opted to skip the Indonesia and Thailand Masters to give herself some more recovery time.

But now, the 2019 world champion is feeling fully fit and ready to go. "I am completely alright now. Physically and mentally, I am completely fine. Injuries happen but it is important to keep your body healthy and come back stronger every time. I am confident, positive, and learning from my mistakes." PV Sindhu told the BWF website.

Sindhu also said she is looking forward to recapturing the form she was in last year when an injury derailed her momentum. However, Sindhu knows that the process may take some time. She thanked her parents for supporting her through these tough times.

"My parents were athletes too. The support and motivation they give me keep me going during low moments." Sindhu concluded.
