She also reiterated the influence of Pullela Gopichand on her career, and how the celebrated coach made sacrifices for his pupil.
"Gopi Sir also worked really hard for me and sacrificed a lot of things. So it paid off well. It has been a wonderful journey. Those three months were tough but if you want something, you have to sacrifice something in life. I have got a medal for the country. So I think I am really proud of it," she added.
Competing in her first tournament after the Olympics, she suffered a narrow defeat to Sayaka Sato of Japan in women’s singles at Denmark Super Series premier on Thursday.
