Saina Nehwal Exclusive: ‘I wasn’t up to the mark’
Saina Nehwal is a lot more philosophical now. In earlier times, a loss would see her brood for long after the match and she would be inconsolable. These days, she seems to get back to her normal self quickly. The Olympic medal – a long-sought dream – has helped her contextualise the other performances, and she knows she can’t be at her best through the year.
What happened?Too many tournaments. I was a little tired. It happens, it’s a long circuit. Wang Lin has been playing well for a year. She was World Champion before. It’s always tough to play the Chinese. All of them are good, and it’s tough to play them again and again. The last I played her was in 2011, at the Malaysia Open GP Gold. I wasn’t up to the mark today.
While playing in Asia, how do you find the Chinese crowd reacting to you?The crowd hardly makes a difference. I’ve been playing for so many years now, I’m used to it. I know if I’m not fit, I can’t handle the Chinese players. If I’m fit I can handle any of them. Before the tournament, I knew I wasn’t 100 per cent fit. It’s not easy at this level. With the (knee) injury too… it’s not easy to perform well. The (right) knee is not fully all right. (But) I have to defend a lot of points. My next break is in January, after the Malaysia Open. Then I will think of doing something for the knee.
What does she mean,Is the injury is as big as one has to get a surgery or what..?

At her level, it is very hard to wait for the knee to completely heal. She is probably trying her best to avoid the surgical approach.
I believe Wang Yihan is also currently facing the same problem.

100% cant be her excuse forever, she needs to get a better one -- seems like he is happy with her knee problems..
dont keep reminding people as if she's the only one that is not fit -- If you dont feel like hearing players' physical problems, then just close your ears. This is my duty to wish her to come back from injury and i am certainly doing right. If you hate it, just please keep it you . Dont need to mention your angry here. Lol

It was just her interview after every match, the 'not 100% fit' she brought up after every losses. It sounded a little, very very little bit like a sore loser, very very very little alright?
Once again, I mean no harm to discredit SN is any way. I'm sorry if it angered anyone one of her fans here

"It sounded a little, very very little bit like a sore loser, very very very little alright?" Not at all.. I pity those who are still believing she is a loser. She is the one who has broken the china wall in the top. she is just 22.
Even top players are not allowed to say that they are not fit..???? what a world is this...!!!

Nehwal also says that when she's fully fit she can handle any of the Chinese players. I guess that means she wasn't fit at the Olympics or at any of the other major tournaments. LOL!

I pity you.. For some of the so called saina haters, i wanna mention something.. I bravely announce that she is the one who created history in india by winning the first medal for badminton.
She has done single handedly for india. Excellent work saina.... She dont believe in bunches. lol
"History making is a prestigious and marvelous than just making victory one among the others which their ancestors have done it already" lol
We are history makers..

Either it's loss of form for whatever reason (and so presently unable to handle them), or the opponents have worked out a strategy to make the wins. In any case, Saina (or any other player) have to develop their own strategy. Nothing wrong with that if you want to stay at the top.

Yeah.. She handled handsome bunch of people already in recent times... Yihan, Li xuerui, shixian, li han, CXJ, Liu xin etc.. .. She does not get chance to play jiang yanjiao this year.. What do you mean by all these victories.. ???
We can proudly say that she is handling a bunch... not a particular person...
