PV Sindhu and Saina have gained a massive following all across the globe after their various exploits at different tournaments. They have brought Indian women’s badminton to the fore and are two of the biggest superstars in the nation. They again had a brilliant showing at the BWF World Badminton Championships for India with PV Sindhu winning the silver medal and Saina Nehwal winning the bronze. This feat has now led to them having a new fan. None other than the mother of the best women’s badminton player of this generation, Carolina Marin, Toni Martin.
Toni has become a fan of both the Indian players with who her daughter has engaged in numerous memorable battles over the years. She waited with the Indian fans in Hyderabad to get herself a selfie clicked with both the superstars of Indian badminton. Not only did she click a selfie with the players themselves but also with PV Sindhu’s mother P Vijayalakshmi and Saina Nehwal’s father Harvir Nehwal.
Here is the photo of Martin clicking a selfie with the players and their parents:
Marin had a poor BWF World Badminton Championship losing to the eventual winner Nozomi Okuhara in the quarterfinals. Okuhara would then go on to break a billion hearts, beating the two Indians in classic encounters. She first beat Saina Nehwal in the semis in three games and then would repeat the feat in an even more thrilling encounter against PV Sindhu in the final in Glasgow.
