    She's a smart girl, indeed, not only inside the court. The way she speaks, answering questions, and express what she think, show it. Main threat for CHN WS in the future.

    'It has to be my best win'

    Moments after pulling off the biggest title victory of her career, Saina Nehwal said the triumph at the Indonesian Super Series was a "dream come true" but never expected it to come at such an early age.

    World No 8 Saina beat No 3 Chinese Lin Wang 12-21, 21-18, 21-9 in a 49-minute hard-fought summit showdown in Jakarta.

    "It is a dream come true for me, it couldn't have been better. I am elated, excited and shocked as well. I always wanted to win a Super series but I have never thought I will win it at such an early age," she said.

    "I was playing well all these months but losing close matches against top ranked players, so it was a little difficult to believe that I have actually won. It took time for realisation to sink in," she said from Jakarta.

    At the Pullela Gopichand Badminton Academy in Hyderabad, Saina put in umpteen hours as part of a strict daily training regimen and the 20-year-old player says she is happy that the hard work has finally paid off.

    "I have always believed in working hard and have given everything in training and during the matches, and so I feel extremely happy and proud of my achievement," she said.

    The Hyderabad-based girl, who won the Chinese Taipei Grand Prix Gold tournament in September, ranked the Indonesian Open title as her best ever performance till date.

    "It has to be my best win because I have defeated two Chinese players in this tournament. There was Lan Lu, whom I defeated in straight games and then here today against Wang I rallied well and beat her under 10 points in the third game," Saina said.

    Saina thanked her Indonesian coach Atik Jauhari for devising proper strategy for her so that she could win over Wang.


    "The Indonesian supporters have been very supportive and I am thankful to coach, who gave me a very good plan as how to go about my match. The plan fell perfectly in place as she was under pressure," she said.

    Saina is now eyeing the World Championship and a place in the top five.

    "I want to break into the top five now, but my first priority is the World Championship in Hyderabad in August. I want to work harder and perform better with each match," she said.

    Saina will next feature in the Malaysian Open Grand Prix Gold tournament, starting on June 23.

    Congrats, Saina!
    You will be the next Susi Susanti (non-chinese top WS player); winning WC and Olympic gold is within your reach, I believe.

    btw I found an intersting picture of Saina here with Mr Huangkwokhau in the background.

    Again, congrats to Saina

    India has only one competitive WS so far: Saina.
    While China...well, a legion.
    India needs 2 or 3 more good WSs to give enough threat to China WS force...

    BAI announces cash award for Saina

    New Delhi: Badminton Association of India (BAI) president V.K Verma has announced a cash award of Rs.2 lakh for Saina Nehwal for her title triumph in the Indonesia Super Series Sunday.

    "Saina Nehwal's title win in Indonesia is a moment to cherish for Indian badminton. We have announced a cash incentive of Rs.2 lakh for Saina," Verma said.

    "She has been the flag-bearer for Indian sport in the world. Like Prakash Padukone and then Pullela Gopichand, Saina has emerged as an icon for youngsters. Indian badminton will gain from her achievements at the international level," Verma said.

    Verma said a lot of young players have come up in the junior ranks and Indian badminton is looking up.

    "There are many junior players who have performed well at the international level recently and we are hopeful that in the coming years the sport will achieve more success at the international level."

    Verma also thanked the Sports Ministry for their support in providing training and sending the players abroad.

    Yes I believe so. She is fearless, has a very strong desire to win, she believes in hard work, and she's a smart and fast learner too. Susi Susanti also had all that traits.

    Saina is still so young, if she fails to grab WC title this year she will still have many years ahead ia. I believe she will achieve what Susi once achieved. I hope she proves me right. Lets just see how she progress.
