Too bad she lost. Saina was a fine young lady. Manage to talk to her few times during the PO. It was tough for her playing hard games. I'm not suprised she lost. She need to improved on her conditioning. Anyway she is still young.. i'm sure we will see more of her in the future wining titles.

It is tough to back up for another tournament only a few days after --- she is probably still basking in her glory in the Philippines Open.

I am very happy for Saina Nehwal. I watched her played well at the Commonwealth Games, Melbourne just weeks ago. I told Saina, herself, that she will one day be a World Singles Champion. But I didn't think she believed me. Saina is only 16.Cheers... chris@ccc

I was able to watch the finals of the Philippine Open in the Philsports Arena. My friends and I (and probably most of the audience) liked how Saina Nehwal played. I can say that most of us became instant fans of her. I hope she'll continue her ascent in the WS ranking.
Her style reminds me a little of Susi Susanti's style of playing.

Move over Sania, Saina is here
UNIQUE ACHIEVEMENT: Saina Nehwal is the first Indian to win a 4-star badminton tournament.
There is a new teenage sporting sensation in Indian sports. Move over Sania Mirza as now it is the turn of another Hyderabadi girl to make the headlines.
Saina Nehwal has became the first Indian woman to win a 4-star badminton tournament and her parents Usha and Harvir Singh Nehwal are on cloud nine.
After all their 16-year-old daughter has done what no Indian has done till now.
Saina's win in the Philippines Open saw her parents, both of whom are former badminton players, celebrating.
And now they proudly show off the medals and trophies that their daughter has won till date.
"Saina was was a very different kind of child. At the age of seven-eight months we were worried about her because she was very serious and would never smile. One day, I took her to the badminton court and when she saw a game, she started laughing," her father Harivir Singh says.
Saina's talent was noticed when she was just nine and former all England champion P Gopichand took her under his wing when she was 13.
"I think her achievement is phenomenal because no Indian woman has done it so far. Also to do so when she is just 16 is great. She has got many tournaments to play in future. It is remarkable not only for her but also for Indian badminton," Gopichand says.
Saina's game is simple as she relies on power to subdue her opponents.
It was on display at the 2006 Commonwealth Games when she was part of the team which won the team bronze.
And now her parents want her to go for the biggest prize of them all.
"Determination accha hai uska. Mehnati bhi hai. Woh accha Olympian banegi aur jeetegi (She is very determined and works hard. I want her to win a medal in the Olympics)," her mother Usha Nehwal adds.
At 16 Saina's best is yet to come. She celebrated her birthday just 10 days back and her parents could not have asked for a better gift from her.

However, I think it is still early days. To expect her to beat top Chinese players would be very hard. This could be her only win for a long while.
Just on that last game with Julia Wong of Malaysia in the Philippines Open, I think Julia could have won if she had attacked Saina more. To be fair, I think Julia should get some accolades too. Well done Julia for reaching the final.

"I am shocked and still don't know how this happened," said not Saina after the Philippines Open, but Xu Huaiwen, world number four, after she was defeated by Saina. "This kid will be on the top in a year," proclaimed the disappointed yet impressed Xu after the game.
This is what Xu said after her loss in the philippine open.

Saina Newhal Vs Wang LinOriginally Posted by hcyong
Yes, you are correct. But so far I can find two, namely, India's Saina Newhal and China's Wang Lin, gifted and talented. It will now depend on how hard they train for the coming World Junior Championships.
Perhaps, they will meet each other at the Finals.

I hope more sponsors will support her now that her talent is being recognized.
One of the things that endeared her to the audience was the fact that during the quarter and semi finals, she was wearing a shirt with her name in black pen ink written on strips of masking tape stuck on the back of her shirt. That's in contrast to the well funded japanese team with beautifully matching uniforms.
I hope she'll be invited to play in this year's MVP Cup.

The Nehwal Effect!Originally Posted by MikeJ
Mittal Champions Trust (India) is essentially providing carte blanche full support to participate in any international tourneys. Also, Yonex-Sunrise is stepping in. So, invitations would only help to better baddy!
And as Gopi, the recently appointed Head Coach at Badminton India, is reported to have said earlier "If we are able to produce a stream of players who can perform well at the international level, media attention will come and it will make a big difference to the sports." Surely seems the recipe for popularity! The Indian Open 07 will be revived by India and hosted as a 5* Grand Prix event! Read about these here: click and here.
Then there is Project 2010 with a definite eye for medals at the Commonewealth Games, and India is also gearing up for WC09. More on this in this report.
