She has envey to those who take the honour on the stage that is why always keen to touch that level by diong at least 6 hr practice daily.

I wish that every body becomes like her in the game.
Thanks for the good words.

Indian Badminton celebrated Saina's emergence
Greetings & A Merry Christmas to Everyone,
Just received this article from The Hindu News Update Service.
If 2005 was tennis sensation Sania Mirza's year, 2006 belonged to Saina Nehwal.
Well Done Saina !!!

Indian Badminton celebrated Saina's emergence
New Delhi, Dec. 24 (PTI): Circa 2006 celebrated the birth of a new sporting star in Saina Nehwal, who burst onto the international badminton scene with feats which no Indian shuttler had achieved ever before.
Sixteen-year-old Saina won a major international title, stood at the runner up podium at World Junior Championship, helped Indian team to a bronze medal finish in Commonwealth Games and made some big names of the world bite the dust.
In her very first year in international circuit, the Hyderabad-based teenager was India's top women badminton player, climbing a staggering 87 rungs in the singles rankings to attain her career-best ranking of world number 27 three weeks back.
Starved of sporting icons, the media and the badminton fraternity hailed Saina as the brightest prospect to emerge from the country in years.
It took 21 years for an Indian to win the prestigious All England title when Pullela Gopichand won it in 2001, after Prakash Padukone's famous 1980 triumph.
Shuttle queen Aparna Popat has done the country proud in many international meets and Saina emerged as an inheritor of that legacy.
There were other proud moments for the sport as well with the country earning a quarterfinal appearance in Thomas Cup and a bronze medal in the mixed team event of the Commonwealth Games.
India also swept the honours in South Asian Games in Colombo, winning five gold, four silver medals and one bronze medal.
If 2005 was tennis sensation Sania Mirza's year, 2006 belonged to Saina, who showed a burning desire to excel and who dreams of winning an Olympic medal.
Always regarded as a promise in the domestic arena, the Gopichand protege even took her admirers by surprise by the way she blossomed in the international scene.
Saina created history by becoming the first Indian woman to win a four-star badminton grand prix when she won the Philippines Open title in Manila in May. She went on to record sterling wins in other events as the badminton faternity world over took notice of the young girl from India.
She finished the year on a high when she defended her Indian Satellite Open title in Mumbai.
But above all Saina challenged the superiority of the nimble-footed Chinese, Malaysian and Koreans and showed that will and guts could transcend any barrier.
That she would make it a memorable year was evident when she scored big wins in the Uber Cup qualifiers in Jaipur in February.
India upset Thailand 3-2 with young Saina showing nerves of steel to overcome the challenge of Sarojita Chansrisukot in the decider of the thrilling tie.
Although India's hopes of making it to the final round were dashed by Singapore, Saina played another stunner against Xing Aiying before losing narrowly.
In the Melbourne Games, a bold move by coach Vimal Kumar saw India bag the bronze medal. After initial hiccups, Kumar chose to play Saina in the singles in place of the seasoned Popat and the teenager did not let her coach down.

Saina's getting her quota of recognition, I am waiting to see more enthusiasm among the Indian parents to encourage their girls into sports.
I hope Saina continues to play with a positive spirit, work hard and aspire to become World No.1, a role model for the girls in India.

Thanks for the encouragements. We wish you a happy Xmas and New year 2007.

New year 2007
First Of All A Very Very Happy & Prosperous New Year 2007 To Every1.
Well, From Past few days Saina is rocking on all Indian newspapers.
so many articles about her acheivemants in first yr in Senior Circuit (2006)
vow!! wid pics all around
After Sir Prakash Padukone & Sir Gopichand's acheivement in International Circuit it is She who awakened Badminton again in India
Year 2006 was rocking for Indian badmiton
Wish All da best Saina For 2007
May u acheive great heights
Perhaps it’s more than coincidence that a mere shuffle of letters connects India’s tennis queen and the country’s badminton princess. But if the career graph of the former is anything to go by, Saina should brace herself for a bumpy ride. After exploding on the scene in 2006, the Haryana girl, who turns 17 in March, will be eyeing the national title (she has been runner-up in last two years) and the Junior World championship gold (finalist last year) among other international events
Saina Nehwal: The year celebrated the birth of a new sporting star in Saina, who burst onto the international badminton scene with feats which no Indian woman shuttler had achieved before.
Sixteen-year-old Saina won a major international title (the Philippines Open), stood runner-up podium at the World Junior Championship, helped the Indian team to a bronze-medal finish in the Melbourne Commonwealth Games and made some big names of the world bite the dust.
In her very first year on the international circuit, the Hyderabad-based teenager was India’s top women badminton player, climbing a staggering 87 rungs in the singles rankings to attain her career-best ranking of world number 27.
The Gopichand protege challenged the superiority of the nimble-footed Chinese, Malaysian and Koreans and showed that will and guts could transcend any barrier.
Her scalps included Malaysia’s Sutheaswari Mudukasan and Pei Xian Julia Wong, Japan’s Imai Sachiyo, world No. 4 Xu Huaiwen of Germany, and South Korea’s Bae Youn Joo.
