“I have come here (London) with the consent of my parents and absolutely they were no family rifts in this regard.

“Why will I have problems/issues with my parents who have sacrificed their lives for my sake. Mine is a very close knitted family and they will always support me. I am in touch with my family members everyday.

“Also I do not have any issues with my coach Mr Gopichand or the training facilities at the academy,” she added.

The world champion had pulled out of the Denmark Open and is yet to compete in any tournament since the COVID-19 pandemic started.
