Interesting to see rise of PV Sindhu, Ratchanok Inthanon, says Juliane Schenk

A bronze-medallist at the previous edition in 2011, Schenk missed the World Championship in China due to a feud with German Badminton Association but she said it was a good decision considering the circumstances.

New Delhi: She could not be a part of the World Championships but veteran German woman shuttler Juliane Schenk feels proud that the process of breaching the Chinese wall, started by her and Saina Nehwal, is being taken forward by the likes of rising Indian star P V Sindhu and Thailand's Ratchanok Inthanon.

" is good to see in this world edition, so many players from different countries do well. I am not surprised to see Ratchanok claiming the gold. It is just interesting," said Schenk when asked for her opinion on Sindhu, who won a bronze, and Inthanon's exploits at the World Championship.

"It makes me feel proud because me and Saina Nehwal started the process of pushing the Chinese," added the German, who was runners up at the Indonesia Open, India Open and German Open this year.
