Gearing up for her maiden Uber Cup amid the COVID-19 pandemic, India shuttler Malvika Bansod says she is not worried about the threat posed by the virus and is looking ahead to returning to the court after a long break.
The prestigious Thomas and Uber Cup Finals will be the first global badminton event to be organised since the coronavirus outbreak in March. They will be held in Aarhus, Denmark from October 3-11.
“There have been so many months without action, so I am actually really excited about the tour. I am not too bothered (about the COVID threat),” she told PTI.
“It is the first time that I have been called for Uber Cup, so I am very happy. I have been able to train for the last couple of months. I had sessions with junior India coach Sanjay Mishra sir after the lockdown was lifted. So I am in good shape,” the Nagpur shuttler added.
