PV Sindhu's Post Takes Social Media By Storm:- India's ace shuttler PV Sindhu left the entire nation and her fans in deep shock with a social media post which came with the words 'I RETIRE'. The word retirement which was posted on her timeline left many puzzled. She penned a lengthy post about the Denmark Open and the retirement topic of PV Sindhu is the most discussed post across the social media circles. "I've 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'm, writing today to tell you that I'm done. It's understandable if you're shocked or confused but by the time you finish reading this you would have learned about my point of view, and hopefully, will support it too", wrote PV Sindhu.
"This pandemic has been an eye-opener for me. I could train hard to fight the toughest of opponents, tooth and nail, right till the final shot of the game. I have done it before, I can do it again. But how do I defeat this invisible virus that has the entire world in a fix? It has been months at home and we still question ourselves every time we step out. Internalizing all this and reading about so many heart-breaking stories online has got me to question a lot about myself and this world we live in. Not being able to represent India in the Denmark Open was the last straw. Today, I choose to retire from this current sense of unrest. I retire from this negativity, the constant fear, the uncertainty, I choose to retire from a complete lack of control over the known," posted PV Sindhu.

She further added "Most importantly, I choose to retire from substandard hygiene standards and our lackadaisical attitude towards the virus. We must not digress; we need to be better prepared. We must defeat this virus together. The choices we make today will define our future and the future of the next generation. We cannot afford to let them down. I may have given you guys a mini-heart attack; unprecedented times require unprecedented measures. I guess I needed to get you guys to sit up and take notice. That being said, we must be hopeful about the light shining at the end of the tunnel. Yes, Denmark Open didn't happen but that won't stop me from training. When life comes at you, one must come back twice as hard. So will I for the Asia Open. I refuse to give up without putting up a solid fight. I refuse to give up without conquering this fear. And will carry on doing so till we have a safer world", Sindhu concluded.
