    But I think SN is well prepared for the eventuality. They must have trained together under Gopi sir or have they?
    Though i praise sindhu for her continuous improvement, if there is a chance for both of them to meet, i support only Saina.

    A win against SN would be a morale booster... This would be the kinda game I would love to watch where anyone wins it doesnt matters to me, both are my favourites...
    I guess they train together so know each other as well. Would love to see them both playing their points against each other, see where they stand!

    I wish they can form a WD partnership, but IBL doesnt sports it neither they would be in the same side.

    Yep. It would be interesting. Even P.V.Sindhu's father was more exciting to watch her daughter playing Saina in IBL. Hence, it seems like everybody is expecting the outcome. Though i support Saina, Sindhu has slight edge over her senior compatriot. You know one thing. I wanna praise BAI for sending sindhu to the sudirman cup 2013 to gain more experience. Her experience against Wang Yihan is a vital one for her career improvement. Let's see how she will do against yihan in world championships 2013. Yihan being in the chinese team, they are training like anything. I have some of the pictures in some of chinese newspapers where they have been training very very hard. It will be a difficult thing to beat them in their home ground. If any of the players around the world tries to and beat them, then we have to salute them.

    Perhaps more body smash to Sindhu will do the trick!

    Now confident of taking on Yihan Wang: Sindhu

    Yep. That's why she proved it by beating Li Xuerui fresh from Olympics(gold) in China itself in front of her home crowd and also beating former world no.1/ Asian games gold medallist Wang shixian in the first ever meeting between them. .

    Whether she wins against yihan or not, i like her self -confidence for a teenaged girl.

    And Lu Lan was the first player to beat an even "fresher" LXR from the Olympics, how impressive. Yet Lu Lan wasn't good enough to be invited back to the CHN National Team. Not only that, till today, no one in China or elsewhere bother to remind us about that famous victory.

    She did it..She kept her words.. In front of chinese crowd, with the way the chinese players are trained (mountain climbing is one among these), Sindhu won yihan in straight games in front of her home crowd. Now, she won all the top chinese players..

    Amazing win. Indian camp must be elated. Beating each of the Chinese players is one thing. Winning the tournaments is another.

    WORLDS R16 Defending champ beaten by rising


    http://www.badzine.net/news/worlds-r...ng-star/26534/

    EXCERPTS:

    Wang Yihan was ousted by 18-year-old Indian Pusarla Venkata Sindhu in two, incredible games on Thursday at the Wang Lao Ji BWF World Badminton Championships in Guangzhou. By Renee Yang, Badzine Correspondent live in Guangzhou. Photos: Badmintonphoto (live)
    Despite the overwhelming support from the Chinese crowd here in Guangzhou, defending champion and No. 2 seed Wang Yihan was beaten in the third round by rising star P. V. Sindhu in straight games! The two players had met once previously, during this years Sudirman Cup when Wang beat the Indian in 3 games. This time, the Indian girl had obviously prepared very well for this match.

    In the first game, she kept forcing Wang to move from her backhand baseline to the net with deep lifts and clears and accurate drops. Once Wang was out of position, Sindhu immediately attacked Wangs forehand area with full strikes. Wang could not find any solution to Sindhus tactics. She once tried changing pace and attacking Sindhus backhand baseline and leveled the scores, but soon Sindhu could caught up with her pace and fought back. Wang had to pay more attention on placement and net play, which also cost her many errors. She soon lost the first game
    18-21.





    In the second game, Wang still could not find any solution to Sindhus attack, and even worse, she faced stamina problems in the middle of the game. When Sindhu played one drop shot very close to the net, Wang failed to reach the shuttle and lost her balance, she was exhausted and lay down on the mat for a while. Sindhu led all the way in the game and held three match points at 20-17.

    The spectators, meanwhile, were all shouting Jiayou to the Chinese star, even from the stands at the opposite end of the gymnasium and hoped she would be able to persevere. Wang struggled to fight back and levelled the score, then even got game point at 21-20, but soon she made mistakes and wasted her last attempt. Sindhu finally took the game 23-21.

    The Indian youngster hugged her coach excitedly when she got the last point. This the second time Ive played her, said Sindhu after her victory. The first time I lost and now the second time, I have beaten her in straight sets. At 22-21, it was a very big rally and both of us were really tired, but I won so Im very, very happy. The main factors were the long rallies and I think my drops were really good today. My coach Pullela Gopichand was an All England champion and Saina, Kashyap and I are all training under him and I am very thankful to him. Its because of him that we are all here today.




    Of course, China still has the top players but I think that Saina and me, we are already able to beat the Chinese players. I think that Kashyap and Ajay Jayaram will also be doing better in the coming months. Im really very happy. Last year, I won against Li Xuerui and then I won against Wang Shixian and now I have beaten Wang Yihan.

    I dont think its just the tall players who are strong, although there are a lot of good tall players, too. I think everyone is equal and whichever player can give 100% on the court is the winner.

    This is my first time in the World Championships and I am already in the quarters. First, I would win against Wang Shixian and then, well see.

    During her post-match interview, Wang praised her opponent: I played with her in this years Sudirman Cup events and she forced me to a rubber game. She performed very well today while I did not perform badly I had a chance to win but I just could not come through at crucial points and let chances slip away.

    Generally she had speed, height and reach so she was able to cover the whole court quickly. Sometimes I thought I had already forced her to a defensive situation, but she was always able to hit the shuttle back.





    The Indian womens single players are quite young and on the rise. They are in a position to challenge us, just like several years back when I was young, I also challenged the experienced players from other countries. These youngsters from Indian, Thailand and Japan gained experience from national events by playing with experienced players and have progressed day by day. So I think its normal for me to lose to her.

    Yes, I had some stamina problems today. Yesterdays opponent was not a top player. I took the match easily so I didnt really activate the whole potential and mood of my body, but today the pace of the match was fast, so I felt a lack of stamina to some extent.

    Wang did not seem so disappointed about the result and kept smiling all the way, saying, I have found that every time I have played in [the World Championship], the second match has always been tough for me. There must be a winner and loser in a match. Its quite normal.

    Meanwhile, the 18-year-old Indian hopeful has created her own history by beating three top Chinese players within one year and it leaves one wondering: what we can expect from her afterwards? Is she indeed the dark horse for the title?

    well done sindhu... now that india has 2 good singles players, both of them can share the expectation of the nation... not so much pressure, one of the reason China excel is because they have so many good players that each players do not have to endure too much pressure.

    Thanks for the links, scorpion1

    The really interesting and revealing part of the Badzine report, is WYH's comments about her form, and about her opponent. A very, very mature and gracious interview from a very, very nice girl.

    A lot of players can learn from it, IMO.
