General
SINGLES ONLY
When he moved up to seniors level he was not sure on which discipline to focus on. "In the juniors I used to play all three events [singles, doubles and mixed doubles]. I was doing quite well in all three. However, when I graduated to the seniors, I didn't know what to do. Then Gopi Bhaiya [his coach Pullela Gopichand] advised me to concentrate on singles. Initially, I was not sure whether it was the right choice, but now I thank my coach for that decision." (timesofindia.indiatimes.com, 21 Mar 2014)
