It is not first and second round always. We have to move beyond that at tough competitions.

    ...of her statement of being (extra) fit, is shown here: "..saying it was important to improve fitness level to go beyond preliminary rounds in competitions."

    I watched Saina play at the recent Macau Open. I took a special interest in watching her just because of this thread. It was her quarterfinal match against the Korean Jun JaeYung. I think the performance was creditable but there is one aspect of her game which can be raised a few notches. I'm talking about her footwork.

    Consider foot positioning - her feet positioning is pretty much OK. I see sometimes when she is wrongfooted, the footwork becomes less clean. Sometimes when she does the little hop to pretension the legs, both feet land on the floor slightly out of synchrony. This slows down her first step when moving towards the shuttle. Not so noticeble when she's fresh but becomes more visible when she tires.

    Speed of legs - on an adjacent court, two chinese ladies were having a singles game. Compare their movement with Saina's and you'll see a big difference. Saina doesn't have the same acceleration and rhythm changes when moving towards the shuttle. She can slowly (it's all relative) accelerate but her movement seems wanting for change of speed.

    Tiredness - I saw after the first half of the 2nd game, Saina was having difficulty in reaching the shuttle and just reaching them a split second slower. This would get her into more difficulties because this becomes a cumulative effect. If her acceleration can be improved, I think the movement can be more efficient and she'll be less prone to fatigue in the game.

    Mind you, Jun Jaeyung is no pushover and Saina did well to nearly grab the first game.

    ..yannie, he (Dr Harvir Singh) might be referring to you for picking up Saina at the airport and taking her to the hotel..

    ..(i haven't seen Saina played before), but could her "less than clean footwork" be the result of her being fatigue (knowing she's playing in the QF Rd.)?!..
