Beiwen Zhang of Singapore has defeated World Champion PV Sindhu in a nail-biting final of the India Open Badminton Tournament held in New Delhi , India on 4th Feb 2018. Considering her self-preparation for the tournament and having lost 3 times earlier to Sindhu, no one would have thought that Zhang would win this title. Zhang's victory came equally as an inspiration and a surprise!
Belonging to China, Beiwen Zhang moved to Singapore for a better sports career. Here, she had some disputes with a coach before finally playing for America. However, US National Federation has not been so easy for Zhang. On this, Zhang said, "They first wanted me to reach the top 20 to get funding, then it was the top 10, then it was to win a tournament." This particular success of Zhang has been charted by herself without any face to face assistance of coach except discussing strategy over emails on few occasions. Coach plays a very important role in any player's win in any of the sports. But it does not seem to be so for Zhang. Sports Fraternity has hailed Zhang as an underdog that made it very big in her career. She defeated Sindhu by 21-18 11-21 20-22 in one of the closest matches of the tournament. This victory is the biggest victory of her career and before this, she had impressed in a tournament in China that was played in the year 2016. She couldn't respond to the questions of the interviewers because she had to catch a flight to Singapore which means that she herself didn't expect to reach the finals of the tournament, forget about winning it.
Zhang was not expecting to reach the finals. However, when the opportunity came in, she hit it calmly and in her own style. Such situations can arise any time in one's life but only those win, who have prepared hard for it.
