After having lost almost all hopes to win a medal in the Olympics this time, India is now looking forward to the few athletes left to perform in the event yet. In the event of a tad more than 2 weeks, India is yet to open their medal count even on the 13th day and all that they get from the event so far is nothing but dismay. The people of India are looking out for the few athletes left. One of the most dependable among the athletes is P.V. Sindhu and she will be fighting against the Japanese counterpart on 18th August at 7:30 PM IST.
