Saina should try to emulate LCW. There were doubts about LCW's mental strength and he is constantly the only Malaysian left in the tournament but he has gotten so used to it that his mental strength improved and he is able to win despite under heavy pressure from the media with no other Malaysians left. Saina is still young, mental strength will come with experience.

after beating Wang Lin in the quarters, she will now face Wang Xin in the finals. if she continues to beat top Chinese players (including WSX in Hongkong Open), then i guess she'll have the confidence to win over the Chinese in the future...

she did pretty good in this tournament, stretching wang xin to 3 games at 14-14, and then from there seems she was missing that extra gear.

HYDERABAD, May 13, 2011
India's ace woman shuttler and World No. 4 Saina Nehwal will not be trained by Pullela Gopi Chand anymore.
“Since, Gopi Chand is the national coach and has to take care of the other players and also the Academy training programme, we mutually agreed that Bhaskar Babu (SAI coach) will pay the desired individual attention to me,” Saina Nehwal toldThe Hindu.
“It hurts when people are already trying to project some sort of rivalry between me and Gopi Chand,” a visibly disturbed Saina said.
“Bhaskar Babu will be the travelling coach with me for all the events henceforth. It is important to remind you that he has been doing that for most of the events whenever the national coach was not available,” said Saina. “I don't see anything wrong with this sort of mutual agreement. What is important is that since I have been winning so many tournaments when Bhaskar Babu is around, it should not matter much,” she added.
“Let me make it clear that I continue to train at the Gopi Chand Academy and will be there for it is the best training centre for badminton in India,” Saina said.
Gopi Chand meanwhile said, “It is not as if we are parting ways as is being projected by many. It is always our intense desire that Saina wins the World championship one day. It may look odd to outsiders, but this agreement is mutually beneficial to both of us.”

What is most discernible during a visit to any sports complex during this summer, is the huge demand for booking slots to play badminton. And it was no different at Vijayanagar Colony GHMC Sports Complex the other morning when the official in-charge Raj Kumar was struggling to satisfy the enthusiastic shuttlers. “All this thanks to Saina Nehwal,” he insists.
As part of the efforts to accommodate aspiring players, GHMC took the services of national umpire and qualified NIS coach Ravi Anand Kumar to take up the task of coaching.
“Even if we have another four indoor stadia in the vicinity, we may not be able to meet this demand,” says another GHMC Circle in-charge Prithviraj.
