PV Sindhu reached the historic milestone with win over Scotland’s Kirsty Gilmour.

India’s PV Sindhu has become only the sixth female badminton player to record more than 450 singles wins on the BWF circuit.

The Indian shuttler recently defeated Scotland’s Kirsty Gilmour (21-17, 21-16) in the first round of the Malaysia Masters 2024 in 46 minutes on May 21, Tuesday. Sindhu missed the Uber Cup and the Thailand Open and managed to record a comfortable victory in her comeback match.

With the triumph, PV Sindhu joined the elite list of female shuttlers who have recorded more than 450 singles wins.

Sindhu has played a total of 647 matches in her singles career, winning 450 and losing 197. However, Sindhu is not the only Indian to reach the milestone. Former BWF World No. #1 and Olympic bronze medalist Saina Nehwal has also crossed the mark. Nehwal has 451 singles victories in her BWF career.

PV Sindhu will also be India’s sole representative in the women’s singles category at the Paris Olympics 2024. The 28-year-old is also a two-time Olympic medalist, and she’s again keen to bring home another accolade.

However, PV Sindhu’s recent form has been a point of concern. She last won a title at the 2022 Singapore Open, and since then, she has been out of form. Due to injuries and changes in coaching staff, the Indian shuttler has faced multiple setbacks.

Meanwhile, Sindhu advanced to the second round of the ongoing Malaysia Masters 2024 with straight games win over Kirsty Gilmour and will next face Korea’s Sim Yu Jin. Meanwhile, Ashmita Chaliha also recorded a resounding victory over Taiwan’s Lin Sih Yun, 21-17, 21-16, in the first round. She will face the USA’s Beiwen Zhang in the next round.
