New Delhi: P Gayatri has badminton in her genes. Daughter of chief national coach and former All-England badminton champion Pullela Gopichand and former India champ PVV Lakshmi, Gayatri is a 'chip off the old block' in every sense.
Just 12 years of age, the shy and demure Gayatri is already leading the way in the Under-13 girls category. She won the U-13 national doubles title last year and is the No. 1 seed in her age-group in both singles and doubles at the PNB Metlife All India sub junior ranking badminton tournament currently on at the Thyagraj Stadium in the Capital.
