Feels amazing to win medal: Sindhu

New Delhi, Aug 13 : Indian shuttler P.V. Sindhu said here Tuesday that it was tough to win a medal on debut at the World Badminton Championships.

The 18-year-old created history by becoming the first Indian to win a women's singles medal at the World Championships last week in Guangzhou, China.

"It was my first World Championships and it was really very tough. But winning the bronze medal feels amazing. I beat two top Chinese players which was not easy but I want to thank my coach and the support staff without whom it would not have been possible," Sindhu said.

Talking about her semifinal loss to Thailand's Ratchanok Intanon, Sindhu said: "I made a few errors in the match but that happens. Ratchanok is playing very well and deserved to win. I tried my best but it wasn't enough. I would like to wish Ratchanok for her victory."

World No.3 Ratchanok went on to become Thailand's first ever World Champion in any category Sunday when she defeated reigning Olympic champion and World No.1 Li Xuerui of China.
