PV Sindhu suffered an early exit

Earlier, PV Sindhu suffered an early exit in the Indonesia Open 2024 after losing to Hsu Wen-chi from Chinese Taipei in the opening round. This unexpected loss marked Sindhu's first-ever defeat to Wen-chi

It was a disappointing outcome for Sindhu, who had previously exited the Indonesia Open in the Second Round last year. This proves to be a significant setback to her preparations for Paris Olympics 2024, where she aims to secure her third Olympic medal.
