‘I Retire’: PV Sindhu’s Post On Social Media Creates ‘Scokwaves’

London: Ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu took her fans by surprise on Monday as she posted on social media which started with two unexpected words – ‘I Retire’

V Sindhu nearly gave her fans, admirers and well-wishers a ‘mini heart-attack’ with her latest Twitter Post saying ‘Denmark Open was the final straw, I retire’. In a lengthy post on her official Twitter handle, Sindhu said, “I have been thinking about coming clean with my feelings for a while now. I admit I have been struggling to deal with it. It just feels so wrong, you know. That’s why I’, writing today to tell you that I’m done. It’s undertandable if you’re shocked or confused but by the time you finish reading this you would have learnt about my point of view, and hopefully, will support it too.”

PV Sindhu explained that she wants to retire from the ‘current sense of unrest, negativity and constant fear’.

This is a very unexpected piece of news as she was expected to compete in the Tokyo Olympics next year. Fan reactions have already started pouring in.

Sindhu’s post comes less than a month after reports that she had left the national camp organised to prepare for the Tokyo Olympics next year and was training in London, to look after her health and nutrition. At the time, she denied rumours of a rift between the national coach and former badminton player Pullela Gopichand and her family.

Sindhu was only 17 years old when she broke into the top 20 Badminton World Federation world ranking in September 2012. She is the first Indian woman to win an Olympic silver medal.
