    Saina Nehwal starts favourite, chance for other Indians to impress at India Open Super Series

    http://www.dnaindia.com/sport/182560...n-super-series

    Excerpts:

    London Olympics bronze medallist Saina Nehwal will no doubt be the cynosure of all eyes but the India Open Super Series starting here tomorrow, will hold more significance for the country's other shuttlers, who would look to prove their mettle at the highest level.

    While Saina will be the centre of attraction in the women's singles category, world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei would be no less sought-after in the men's section.


    World No. 2 Saina and the Malaysian star, who won the inaugural India Open Superseries title in 2011, will spearhead the challenge in the women's and men's categories, respectively at the Siri Fort Sports Complex from April 23-28.


    In the absence of top Chinese shuttlers, Saina has been seeded number one and handed a relatively easy draw. She will open her campaign against unseeded Belaetrix Manuputi of Indonesia in the women's singles event.


    Saina had beaten the Indonesian comfortably in the All England Badminton pre-quarterfinals last month.


    In fact, the Hyderabadi is not likely to be challenged much in the first two rounds but may face some threat from compatriot P V Sindhu, who is seeded eighth in the competition.

    High on confidence having defeated former World No.1 Shixian Wang of China at the Badminton Asia Championships in Taipei last week, Sindhu might pose a challenge to Saina

    "(If we meet) It would be an interesting match. Hardly we girls play each other. Being a top player, I will be under some pressure," said Saina on the eve of the competition.

    Saina's first real test, however, is likely to be against world no. 8, Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand in the semi-finals. Intanon, seeded third in the competition, had recently got the better of the Indian in the semi-finals of the All England Championships.

    Fit-again Saina Nehwal raring to go at India Open

    http://m.ibnlive.com/news/sports/fit.../387061-5.html

    EXCERPTS:

    World number two women's shuttler Saina Nehwal is the top seed at the Yonex Sunrise India Open and in the absence of Chinese players, she is eager to put her best foot forward trying to emulate her 2010 success at the BWF Super Series tournament to be held in Delhi from April 23 to 28.
    Talking at the pre-tournament press conference, Saina sounded upbeat ahead of the tournament with an easy draw in hand. The London Olympics bronze medallist said, "Every tournament is tough. This one is a Super Series event and all the top players will be playing in it, but I am looking forward to put my best foot forward."

    Saina, who had been playing with a taped knee for some time stated that at the Indian Open she will get rid of the tapes and will be playing without the knee tapes. She also added. "We play a lot of tournaments so injuries happen; we just have to be careful and hope to avoid major injuries".

    The star shuttler will start off her campaign against unseeded Belaetrix Manuputi of Indonesia in the women's singles event with a possible quarter-final clash with India's PV Sindhu who is seeded eight. Speaking about her potential quarter-final match with Sindhu, Saina said she will be a bit nervous playing her India teammate as she is the higher ranked player and the pressure to perform will be on her.

    "I am looking forward to playing with Sindhu. Hardly Indian girls play together in Super Series tournament, so it will be interesting. I will be a bit nervous because I am the higher ranked player".

    Regarding the Badminton line-call review system which would be used at the Indian open, Saina felt the system is not going to be easy.

    "Badminton is a fast game and the review system is not going to be easy. We would need to see if it works out or not. Some decisions go in favour of us some don't, and I hope the review system helps us".

    *** Line Call Review system is going to be used !!!!! Good to the badminton ...

    PLAY THINGS: Saina loses, but badminton wins

    http://www.livemint.com/Opinion/j2lV...nton-wins.html

    EXCERPTS:

    It has been a good weekend for badminton in India, if not so much for Indian badminton players. There were no Indians in the fray on Sunday, April 28, the day of the finals at the India Open Super Series in New Delhi’s swank Siri Fort Badminton complex, but that didn’t stop spectators from pouring in. A full house watched the elastic Lee Chong Wei from Malaysia and Thai wunderkind Inthanon Ratchanok win the men’s and women’s finals respectively, and both matches witnessed raucous cheering. This has not always been the case at the India Open, which was raised to Super Series status in 2011, but saw thin crowds in both 2011 and 2012.

    In 2011 and 2012, the crowds came to watch Saina Nehwal, and trickled out when she lost in the early rounds in both editions. This time, despite Saina’s exit in the second round, there was no drop in spectator interest, a sign that must make the organisers very happy. When Lee Chong Wei entered the stadium to thunderous applause on Sunday, it did seem like badminton had come of age in the country—people were here for the game, not just for nationalistic reasons.

    But what ails Nehwal at the India Open? Does the intense home support work to her disadvantage? Does she feel more under pressure? Saina brushes that theory off, but the spectacular mental collapse at the tournament, when she lost from being three match points up against a much lower ranked opponent, is inexplicable given her usual composure and fighting abilities. I watched the match sitting next to Nehwal’s mother Usha, who usually travels with her for domestic tournaments. It was a nerve wracking experience, though it started on a funny note: As soon as Nehwal walked on to the court, Usha, who was sitting quietly till then, screamed “Look here!” Her voice cut through all the cheering in the stadium, and Nehwal glanced up with a half-embarrased smile to acknowledge.

    As the match started, Usha sat up very straight, with this grim sliver of a smile stuck to her face, lips tightly compressed, that was downright disconcerting. From the very first point, a stream of advice started pouring out of Usha—she looked like she didn’t really mean to say them out loud, but couldn’t help herself—she was in a trance. She definitely didn’t mean for Nehwal to hear any of it, except for a few times between points when she bellowed out at her to tell her she was playing well, and to keep cool. The rest of the time, it was a wall of continuous commentary just loud enough for the first rows of seats in front of her and next to her to hear. At first, the people in the rows in front looked back at her with obvious displeasure. “Who is this woman with so many opinions, and why is she inflicting them on us?” But ten minutes into the match, everyone realised that this was Nehwal’s mother, and the rude stares stopped. Not that Nehwal’s mother noticed any of this. She stared straight ahead at the court, giving out her instructions:

    Watch the net.” “Use the sides, you are stuck in the middle.” “Be cool.” “You are playing fine, just keep doing this.” “Don’t smash.” “Start moving, why are your feet stuck?” “Stay calm.” “That’s it, keep playing like this.”

    Nehwal says that it’s her mother who has made her the player she is today. “Right from the time I started playing badminton, she has been the one I went for advice,” Nehwal says. “She is the one who gave me the killer instinct, she made me fearless.” Usha herself was a state-level badminton player. But on this day, her support did not work. From three match-points up to losing the match, it happened so fast that it left the spectators stunned. At the end of the match, Usha turned towards me and gave me that same grim smile, and left without a word. Later, Saina admitted that she was flustered by a line call that did not go her away when she was at match-point.

    “I lost my head when the call went against me,” she said. “And after that things happened so quickly that I lost control. I don’t know what needs to be done. Only in India I don’t seem to be able to fight back from situations like this.”

    Don't Worry Saina.. Keep going... All the best for your future tournaments..

    Based on my calculations there is a good chance that Saina NEHWAL will be the world No 1 after the Sudirman cup in a couple of weeks time.

    India is drawn with China and Indonesia in Group A. All SN needed to do is beat the top INA girl and the World No 1 spot is pretty safe for her. Most likely China will field WANG Yihan against SN in the group match. Even if she lost to WYH she is still the hot on favour to claim the No 1 spot.

    Because after the group matches only 3 girls left with enough points for LI Xuerui (the current No 1) to beat and gain enough points to maintain her top position, namely Juliane SCHENK, Ratchanok INTANON and SUNG Ji Hyun.

    From the draw China will probably play one of the three teams and most likely with WYH. So, my money is for Saina NEHWAL to reach No1 in 3 weeks time.

    If it happens it will be a happiest moment. But i don't think it will happen so. Because India is fielded with Indonesia and china (both are expected to proceed further to the next stage). China will not field Wang Yihan with all the teams as if you are expecting. Still Li Xuerui is a hot favourite to win many top WS players though her form is slightly dropped this year. China will be the favourite to win the title and hence the accumulated points, which i consider is enough for LI Xuerui to gain points and to maintain her position.
    ALSO, Saina Nehwal has to defend her points in the upcoming many tournaments (titles which she won last year)which is going to be very difficult with her current form. Let's hope for the best. But No.1 position is still be in the hands of Li xuerui even after Sudhirman cup...

    no, the whole point is SN only needs to win her group match against INA which is very likely.
    but LXR needs to beat one of the 3 girls I mentioned earlier at the later stages to remain at No 1, which is less likely unless WYH play really badly or got injured.

    I know that you are good in statistics in badminton (also calculating points). I abide to your comments. Let's see what happens.. According to me, Li xuerui is stronger among the 3 players you have mentioned than Wang yihan.

    Let's hope for the best.. But i feel that India will field P.V.Sindhu against indonesian players and they will field P.V .Sindhu against Li Xuerui if china selects Li to play against India and Saina nehwal , if china selects Wang yihan to play.

    the team will not know the players of the opposite team before they submit their players.
    If India don't play SN against INA that will rob her the chance to be No 1.

    Hold on Li Xuerui is anyways gonna lose 4000 points next week. And the points from SC are only going to be added the week after that. I thought this automatically means SN would become No.1 next Thu, no matter what the matches/results are from SC Cup???
    I already had a pitcher for this last week. Now dont say I was wrong, then
