"I am really happy. I think this is a month to remember forever. I got Arjuna Award right before the start of the World Championships and that was one of the motivations. I am really happy that I followed it by winning a bronze medal," Praneeth told ANI.

Praneeth said that they all can get some confidence from Sindhu's achievement.

Praneeth gave a lot of credit to his coach Pullela Gopichand, who also coached Sindhu.

"Gopi Sir was one of the main keys for all the success. I think the way he approaches coaching and the way he is towards badminton, it was the main key for all the success. I am happy that I am training under Gopi Sir," said Praneeth.
