Sindhu also was honoured with India’s fourth-highest civilian award, Padma Shri. Saina Nehwal is ranked fifth in the world, followed by Sindhu who claimed the tenth rank in the top-10 list. Sindhu is the second Indian player to be ranked in the world’s top-10 listTechnically, Sindhu is calculative, contained and, rather than power, she relies more on tactics. Whereas Nehwal is faster and stronger; she constantly moves around the court in search for the right moment to attack her opponents. After beating the top-ranked players, Sindhu has the tendency of losing to lesser-ranked players.

While Sindhu is just looking forward to her first Olympics in Rio, Saina Nehwal has already won the bronze medal in 2012, becoming the first Indian shuttler to have won an Olympic medal. In 2012, when Saina brought glory to the nation by winning a bronze medal, Sindhu secured her place in the top-20 rankings of the world.Saina Nehwal and Sindhu are both India’s two best shuttlers. In 2013, we have seen a hike in Sindhu’s performance and a fall in Saina Nehwal’s performance. Sindhu is a very significant player but she needs time and experience to take the reign of badminton from Saina. After suffering navicular bone injury, Sindhu is working hard on improvising her footwork. She is playing well but is still under the shadow of Saina Nehwal.
