Ace shuttler PV Sindhu has decided to give the Thomas and Uber Cup badminton championships a miss. The tournament was slated to be held in Aarhus, Denmark from October 3 to 11, this year.
The current world champion, according to ANI has pulled out because of 'some personal reasons'.
According to The Hindu, "Sindhu has informed the Badminton Association of India about her decision to skip the event because of some personal reasons,"

Recently during an Instagram live, when Sindhu was asked about her inspiration, she said: "Dad inspired me to play sports". "When I am on the court I think about myself and my expectations and not what others' expectations are," Sindhu said in response to a question about stress management.
She is currently training at the SAI-Gopichand Academy under Korean coach Park Tae-Sang and national coach Pullela Gopichand, along with Kidambi Srikanth, B Sai Praneeth and N Sikki Reddy .
