Great job by beating the hottest or arguably the best woman player right now to win the HK Open. Even though I like WSX, but I also like to see a non-Chinese player able to challenge the Chinese WS players to make it more fun to watch.

There are few tennis players (Leander Paes/Mahesh Bhupathi) and chess player (Vishwanathan Anand) who definitely earn more money. Perhaps she was talking of year 2010. Badminton is still some way to go in India.

Whatever she earned, Saina has progressed far this year compared to just about a year ago during the Super Series Finals 2009. All she needs now is a bit more on the soft touch deception to be complete. It always seemed that Saina worked the points too hard by applying power and speed all the time, and while it worked in HK, it could also backfire like in Guangzhou and almost did in CWG.

Saina is getting many sponsors this year, 2010
No, SN is getting many sponsors this year, 2010. Only a few cricketers managed to get more than her. I have read articles from India about this. I haven't saved any of those articles, otherwise I would have given you all the links.
I am sure SN will get the World No. 1 ranking one day; Then perhaps she can outdo Indian cricketers.

Saina Nehwal Wins Hong Kong Open, Says Want To Be Champion Always
"When I saw the trophy, I liked its colour. I really wanted to win it."
India’s Golden Girl Saina Nehwal has done it one more time for India by beating Shixian Wang of China in the Hong Kong Open Series. Although she suffered a setback in the beginning, by losing 15-21, she came back majestically to beat the Chinese 21-16, 21-17 in 71 minutes.
The world no 4 Saina though with the win proved to be one of the best badminton players ,might have to settle with no 3 spot . This is due to the fact that Saina did not take part in five enthralling Super Series tournaments; mainly in France, Denmark, Japan and 2 in China. She was playing the Commonwealth and Asian Games at that time.
Saina says, “It means a lot to beat the Chinese in the final as I had lost to her in the World Championship. I was disappointed after losing in the quarter-finals of the Asian Games that I could beat those two players in one tournament means a lot to me.” Even though she can’t be the at the top of the table, she says, “I won three Super Series titles, one Grand Prix and the Commonwealth Games gold. It has been a big year. I’m happy with my performances.”
By winning this Series, she has shut the mouth of her critics. Even after the Chinese winning the first game, Saina never lost her grip over this match. She came back by winning this famous Open. She says, “It was a tough game. Shixian was in good form. I was nervous at the start. I had to play with the wind. But after the first game loss, I found my rhythm as I controlled the shuttle. the game changed a lot after I took a 11-5 lead in the second.” Saina further says, “I want to be the champion always. I love winning. When I saw the trophy, I liked its colour. I really wanted to win it.”
Hyderabadi Pullela Gopi Chand is her coach and says, ““She played some very good shots at crucial times of the game and kept her nerve. That was important. It was a wonderful final.”
