    Saina backs BAI’s debatable decision

    New Delhi: Promising shuttler Saina Nehwal has supported Badminton Association of India’s decision to restrict players’ participation in international tournaments to attend training camps, saying it was important to improve fitness level to go beyond preliminary rounds in competitions. “I think we need time for training to stay fit. It is not first and second round always. We have to move beyond that at tough competitions. We have to be extra fit to compete with other fast Asian players,” Saina said. “The movement on the court plays an important part and to improve on this aspect of the game we need time for training,” she said before leaving for Malaysia where she will participate in the Badminton Asia Championship today.

    I think the point..

    ...of her statement of being (extra) fit, is shown here: "..saying it was important to improve fitness level to go beyond preliminary rounds in competitions.";)

    I watched Saina play at the recent Macau Open. I took a special interest in watching her just because of this thread. It was her quarterfinal match against the Korean Jun JaeYung. I think the performance was creditable but there is one aspect of her game which can be raised a few notches. I'm talking about her footwork.

    Consider foot positioning - her feet positioning is pretty much OK. I see sometimes when she is wrongfooted, the footwork becomes less clean. Sometimes when she does the little hop to pretension the legs, both feet land on the floor slightly out of synchrony. This slows down her first step when moving towards the shuttle. Not so noticeble when she's fresh but becomes more visible when she tires.

    Speed of legs - on an adjacent court, two chinese ladies were having a singles game. Compare their movement with Saina's and you'll see a big difference. Saina doesn't have the same acceleration and rhythm changes when moving towards the shuttle. She can slowly (it's all relative) accelerate but her movement seems wanting for change of speed.

    Tiredness - I saw after the first half of the 2nd game, Saina was having difficulty in reaching the shuttle and just reaching them a split second slower. This would get her into more difficulties because this becomes a cumulative effect. If her acceleration can be improved, I think the movement can be more efficient and she'll be less prone to fatigue in the game.

    Mind you, Jun Jaeyung is no pushover and Saina did well to nearly grab the first game.

    Hmm..

    ..(i haven't seen Saina played before), but could her "less than clean footwork" be the result of her being fatigue (knowing she's playing in the QF Rd.)?!.. :confused:

    Saina has had direct entry into the main draw at the Dutch and also in the current Danish Open. If memory serves me right she was also a direct entry into the main draw at Macau.

    Gopichand has been working with her and accompanied her to Macau. His tutleage is proving beneficial as can be seen from her performances.

    She is definitely in the running to be a serious title contender at the Vietnam Open in early Nov

    Saina at the Danish Open tomorrow - after two consecutive QF apperances in Macau and the Dutch Open a tough battle awaits Saina in RD1 facing 3rd seed Chinese Zhu Lin. This match will test Saina's all round play and mental strenghth and a prelude to see where her game is against more reputed and tougher opposition.
