Saina Nehwal's short bio
Saina Nehwal was born on March 17, 1990 in Haryana and grew up in the City of Hyderabad in India. Her father is a scientist at the Directorate of Oilseeds Research, Hyderabad. Saina is an Indian badminton player currently ranked number 2 in the world by Badminton World Federation. Saina is the first Indian girl to reach the singles quarterfinals at the Olympics and the first Indian to win the World Junior Badminton Championships.
Entering the Philippines Open tournament as the 86th seed, Saina went on to stun several top seeded players including number seed Huaiwen Xu before defeating Julia Xian Pei Wong of Malaysia for the title. She became the first Indian woman to reach the quarter finals at the Olympic Games when she upset world number five and fourth seed Wang Chen of Hong Kong in a three-game thriller. Saina has been named The Most Promising Player in 2008. Saina is brand ambassador of Deccan Chargers, an Indian Premier League team owned by Deccan chronicle.
World No 2 in Badminton, Saina Nehwal can now charge up to 30 lakh per endorsement. Unlike her coach, Pullela Gopichand, who refused to endorse aerated drinks at the peak of his career, Saina says she's wide open to offers, especially since she's somewhat of a Cola girl herself. Today's generation wants to drink everything. Gopi sir took a very brave decision because he believes if celebrities do anything, the public follows. But, Saina doesn't see it that way that if she drinks, others will also start drinking it.
Saina is now the most-wanted sports celebrity in India. Plenty of Bollywood movie offers start to flow in already. Saina doesn't want to do any movies because that's totally another profession and she is from a sporting background. Saina is fine tuning both her game strategies and working on her fitness before she leads the Indian team at the World championship in Paris. A topnotch performance could see her returning to India as world number one - at which point, her brand value could touch a crore per ad. Hope this short biography of Saina Nehwal gives you enough information to dig around and become a fan of hers on Twitter.
Before pocketing two back-to-back international titles in Singapore and Indonesia, that did a world of good to her ranking, Saina won the prestigious India Open in Chennai. Saina is still playing the way she used to a year ago. It’s just that people have begun to take notice now. Her stamina has improved a great deal. One can gauge it from the way she played the two Super Series. Winning 15 singles matches over 21 days speaks volumes about her fitness.
