Replying to a query on the Commonwealth Games, Sindhu said, "It's not going to be easy. I definitely should work hard for it and I hope I just give my best. Because it's not so easy.

We have to play each and every match and give a 100 percent."

The Commonwealth Games begin in Australia's Gold Coast from 4 April. Sindhu had won a bronze in the previous edition held in Glasgow, Scotland.

She said that her preparations were going on well and the plan was to take it "one tournament at a time".

"Preparation-wise everything is going on well. It is just one tournament at a time. Next is the All England Championships so I hope to do well," the 22-year-old said.

Sindhu, who had achieved a career-high global ranking of number 2, had last week said that her dream was to reach the top spot. "Now my dream is to become World No 1 and definitely it's in progress. I want to see myself there," she said.
