P.V. Sindhu withdraws from BWF World Tour finals

Star Indian shuttler and world number five P.V. Sindhu has pulled out of the upcoming BWF World Tour finals in China.

In a letter to the Badminton Association of India on Sunday, Sindhu said she was not yet fully recovered from the left ankle injury sustained during the Commonwealth Games 2022, according to The Hindu.

Sindhu sustained a stress fracture on her left ankle during her gold medal-winning run in the Birmingham Commonwealth Games.

P.V. Sindhu is a former champion, as she won the very first edition of the BWF World Tour Finals in 2018.

With P.V. Sindhu withdrawing from the World Tour finals now, H.S. Prannoy remains the only representative from India who has a spot in the year-ending event assured. Kidambi Srikanth is still fighting for a spot.
