Thread: Saina Nehwal

Gentlemen, we need to have some cooler heads here. I don't think references to statements made by banned trollers indicates any progress. We have moved on from that and I hope you can too.
There is no point defending Saina's mobility or weakness in turning. I mentioned it many years ago in this very thread back in 2007 (I think) after watching her in the Macau Open. She has improved in this area in recent years.
As for China players, it is not objective to refer to them as one collective body- each player is an individual there to played against and with different strengths and weaknesses. A more objective comparison is to say SN vs WSX, SN vs WYH etc.
Head to head records? A better indicator of form is recent trends. Saina is certainly doing better.

I am new to this forum . I have been watching so many criticism against saina from some particular persons. Once i have seen it, i replied to them. Badminton is a wonderful game. I am here because of the success of Saina nehwal. I appreciate her for dragging me from cricket to badminton. I appreciate all the top ranked players who are very much interested to play for their country. How come these trollers be allowed to criticize top ranked players for simple reason?.
I like wang yihan's attacking play.
I like wang xin's tactical play.
I like wang shixian's rallies.
I like saina's do or die spirit.
Whoever you take, they have special qualities. We should not disgrace them. This is my point.
But when people like Miqlin7 spoils badminton, we should not simply sit and watch. Thats what my policy. I just referred those youtube links where Miqlin7 has got so many criticisms for his remarks.. I dont wanna continue this subject hereafter as it is the thread of Saina. So, lets forget about that troller and continue about saina.

Power of Saina after her Olympics medal..Interesting news. Just wanted to share
Have a look at this news. You may wonder how come a cricket bounded country was slowly starting to share equal importance with badminton.
Kudos to saina nehwal.

Quite understandably, SN is the toast of India and she has been richly rewarded.
But it will take some more time for her to equate Nadal in tennis I think. In any case the two racquet games are different, so are the competitions and the players.
While players are expected to have ups and downs, the recent French Open exposed SN's weakness not so much mentally, but more so physically as she was too slow to measure up to her young Japanese competitor.
Minatsu Mitani, I think, has not won any tournaments of significance. But in her final match against SN, she gave back what SN normally gave to others. MM's commitment and 'do-or-die" attitude surprised even SN herself and resulted in her unexpected defeat in straight games of 21-19, 21-11.
Like LXR, SN has to pull up her socks to avoid further defeats in the presence of so many up-and-coming talented young players.

No Doubt, saina has made a great achievement.
Mitani is 21 and saina is 22. Mitani captured her 1st title . Saina has already captured 15 titles(including Superseries, superseries premiur, GPG etc).
So, Still she has 8 years of play. she already discussed in setting up an academy in Bangalore.
Lets see how it goes..:-)

Yes, at so young an age SN already has big dreams to give back to the badminton community.
For this I salute her and I hope her initiative will encourage corporate sponsors to support her.
