Hyderabad: Indias star shuttler PV Sindhu is focusing on upcoming championships and aims to give her best to achieve her ultimate goal — becoming World No. 1.

After winning the Indian Open Superseries early this month, she was almost there, with a career-best ranking of World No. 2.

The 2016 Olympic silver medallist, however, slipped to fifth place last week following a first-round exit from the Malaysian Open. She also lost in the quarter-final of the Singapore Open Superseries.

"Winning or losing is part of life. Sometimes you will win, sometimes you will lose," she said.

"If you play well and give your best, it automatically gets your ranking up," said Sindhu.She is now focusing on Asia Badminton Championships to be played in China between April 25 and 30. "After that we have the Sudirman Cup in May," said Sindhu, who hopes to do well in the two events.
