Coach Park Tae-sang has some spare time and can take care of the injury he sustained during the Games, where Sindhu bested Michelle Li in the finals to win the gold in singles and India won silver in the team competition. PV Sindhu, a five-time medalist at the World Championships, will no longer be competing at the upcoming world-stage competition.
With continual travel from tournament to tournament, Sindhu and Park have had a busy schedule. Just this year, Sindhu has won championships at the Syed Modi International, the Swiss Open, the Singapore Open, and most recently, the CWG crown. Due to a stress fracture, Sindhu will likely be sidelined for the next two months. Her greatest chance of returning is in October, when Park Tae-sang, who has relatives in Korea, will also be back.
Sindhu's game has changed significantly when she switched coaches from Pullela Gopichand to Coach Park. They both have one of the best coach-athlete relationships in Indian sports right now.
