Ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu, who recently settled for a second consecutive silver medal in the Badminton World Championships after losing to Carolina Marin of Spain in the final match, has said that she would make a strong comeback and her focus is on taking out the positives from the tournament.

The 23-year-old further asserted that though she gave her 100 per cent in the tournament, she would definitely work on her weak areas.

"Anybody would want to see their selves getting a gold medal but I did my best. At the end of the day, one should win and one should lose. She (Marin) also did well. But I think I should not take it in a bad way. I will have to take the positive things, but definitely work on my mistakes and come back stronger," Sindhu said.

Reflecting on her preparation for the upcoming Asian Games, Sindhu said that they have got very less time to prepare but whatever time is left, they would train hard for the tournament.

"We have Asian Games but there is not much time. But as much time as we have, I think I have to get back to training and work hard for that one and a half week and go and play in Asian Games," she said.

"I hope we do well. Last time we got bronze (team event). I wish it to be a much better one this time. Also in the individual event, I hope to do well," she added.

On a related note, Asian Games are slated to be held from August 18 to September 2 in the Indonesian cities of Jakarta and Palembang.
