Memoirs at 22!
October 25, 2012
...Saina Nehwal, with several ‘firsts’ to her credit in a badminton career spanning 13 years, has documented her life thus far in the book Playing To Win .
...Much like Saina’s demeanour, simplicity stands out in the narration and presentation of the tale told over 118 pages.
The journey takes the reader from how she could not go beyond the “brown belt” in karate to collecting the Olympic bronze.
...Interestingly, these are smartly interspersed with “boxes” reflecting on Saina’s favourite players, the other sportspersons she admires, what is in her suitcase, the diet she follows, and much more.
...Reflecting her opinion on certain sections of the media, Saina narrates, “So how come you won? Did she (the other player) have a bad day?” And I would say, “No, I won because I played well,” and be greeted by derisive laughter. It was insensitive, but we sportspersons have been told that as public personalities, we have to get used to this. But how does one get used to rudeness?”
No doubt, Saina has ample reasons to say, “I have pretty much stopped reading the papers now and bothering about what people are saying.”

I have read the article.. '
It says that if saina wins the french open 2012, then she might get 3000 more points. What does it mean.. Only 3000 points? Why not 9200 points as like other superseries events.. If anybody there to clarify my doubt...

5.2 World Ranking - 11 or more World Ranking tournaments in the last 52 weeks
If a player or pair has competed in the same event at 11 or more World Ranking tournaments, only the
10 highest points scored in the tournaments during the previous 52 week period count towards their
>>> 10 highest scores will be considered that means the lowest will be remove from the total and the newly acquired points will be added to the total provided its higher than the lowest of the 10 scores

Oh Really, I wonder how come such irrelevant rules prevails.. Anyhow , thanks for your information. Hey Rahul, i have one more doubt. I have read in another article which mentioned that if saina crosses one more hurdle(they meant the quarterfinal match against ratnachok in french open 2012), she will reach worldno.2 rank . This is totally contradict to the previous article which i mentioned before. If she needs to cross 85,000 mark which li xuerui is having now, she needs 5000 more points from her current ranking. But if only 3000 points are given, how come she achieves that feat. Sorry to disturb you. But no other go..Hee hee. I am new to this badminton world. i am wondering whether i could understand the rules correctly. Expecting your reply.

I guess, since LXR is not participating at the French Open, a week from now she will lose the 7800 points she won there last year...

Scores that will be removed:
Saina: 6050 (Last year's French open score was not considered for Saina's Ranking and this is the lowest score she has among the weightage points)
LXR: 7800 (Since this score was achieved more than 52 weeks ago hence will not be considered for ranking and will be removed from the ranking)
Scores that will be added:
Saina: 9200 (if she wins French open SS)
LXR: 6579.8 (Highest score among the Weightage points)
Scores after French Open SS (If Saina Wins let alone reaching SF):
Saina : 80361.74 -6050+9200 = 83511.70.
LXR : 85926.7 -7800+6579.8 = 84706.5
I sincerely hope I am wrong but this is what I know about how the ranking points are calculated.

The rankings are calculated based on performance and results over the past 52 weeks. That's all.
So if on the first week (i.e., almost a year ago) you gained 5000 points for your performance, then a week from now, those 5000 points will not figure in your rankings calculation.
The French Open is held always on the 42nd week of the year. That is now. When the 43rd week of the year becomes the present, the French Open points for everyone will get wiped off their rankings calculation.
Therefore, to stay in the game of rankings, you need to make sure you play as much as possible. If you skip a couple of big tournaments that you have won earlier, it will affect your rankings quite a lot.
Unless of course you are LD or LCW and are always winner or runner-up - then you can afford to sleep a little more!
If you want to understand ranking and how it works better, here is some reading for you:
