    For all the challenges that Saina Nehwal has managed to brave on a badminton court, returning from a bout of mild chicken pox with a world championship only a week away is an altogether different proposition.

    As Nehwal returned to practice on Monday at coach P Gopichandís academy after having given the irritation a week to subside, she spoke of the mental fortitude that sets her apart. ďI know sportspersons who, in a similar situation, would have given up, lost hope. But Iím mentally very strong and was always prepared to go back on court and give my best. I never gave not playing a thought,Ē she said after training for an hour on Monday and sounding unperturbed about the lost time.

    ďIt felt good to come back, in fact I really enjoyed it out there. Itíll take two-three days to get my rhythm back, but Iím feeling alright now, and thereís no problem. Today I didnít feel exhausted,Ē she said.

    ** A few notable previous Arjuna Award winners in badminton were Chetan Anand, Gopichand Pullela, Aparna Popat, Anup Shridnar & Prakash Padukone

    Default Saina is a breath of fresh air in badminton: Taufik

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/s...ow/5356671.cms

    "Saina is like a breath of fresh air in women's singles which has been dominated by the Chinese and coach Gopichand has been a great guide for her. I feel with Gopichand around, Saina will get the best tips and guidance which will help her perform and prolong her life in the court," Taufik said.

    Default My wins have changed world's perception towards India: Saina

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/s...ow/5358086.cms

    "I never take my opponents as Chinese or Indonesian. But I feel with me winning more against them, the perception of the Chinese and the whole world towards India has changed," Saina said.

    "It has also given other countries the confidence that we can also beat the Chinese. So it is not only about India but it has also inspired other countries to beat the Chinese in their game," she added.

    Arjuna award is given to only sport-person of some repute, so I don't think it is something like "Datukship". The equivalent awards in India are Padma awards (Padma-Shree, Padma-Bhushan) and the highest award Bharat Ratna.
    And, no George, even after getting a award, she won't be called Arjuna Saina Nehwal, since as per Indian constitution, all prefixes apart from academic ( like Dr. or Engineer) and military (Cmdr., Maj. etc ) are illegal.
    So sadly she will remain Saina Nehwal
    Anyway, I think she deserves this award because she has created a wave among Indian kids for badminton and she is a great model for Indian teenage girls.
