Olympic silver medallist PV Sindhu won her first match after the Rio Games at the Denmark Open on Wednesday. Sindhu defeated China's He Bingjiao 21-14, 21-15. She will now face Sayaka Sato of Japan in the second round of the Super Series tournament.
Sindhu, who won two bronze medals at the World Championships, defeated three top players en route to her silver medal win at the Olympics. However, her best performance at any Super Series tournament has been a runners-up finish at the Denmark Open last year.
"[My run in the] Olympics has given me a lot of confidence. And with the same confidence I hope I would go further. Responsibilities will always be high from now on. It's just that I shouldn't take much of pressure and play my game. I just want to go to the court and give my 100%," Sindhu had said, before her departure.
