Sports lovers, again felt glad this time again when Saina Nehwal, who had not won any important trophy for the last 15 months bagged Indian Gan free trophy in Shuttle cock,,this January(2014) She has won better awards after winning previous Olympic medal.

In 2012...

The sports lovers, especially badminton lovers watched with open eyes the amazing achievement of Saina Nehwal beating her stronger opponent- Xuenui Li of China, world no 3 ranked youngster, on 17th June 2012 Sunday at Jakarta in Indonesia, in the Indonesian open championship finals.With that winning the birth of a world super star in Shuttle badminton, has risen.

Third Award in the year

The present award won by Saina on Sunday, June 17th, 2012, is the third in the year 2012.In the beginning of the year she had conquered Championship award in Swiss open.Just a week ago, she had bagged Thailand open championship award,(June-2012). Now she has again shown another excellence , by winning Indonesian open championship trophy. Such winning trio should be a proudful thing for anybody, and any nation.

Brief bio-data

Eventhough Saina Nehwal is proudly described -Hyderabad Badminton girl,by South Indians, especially Hyderabad people, She is actually north Indian.Her father Mr. Singh is from Haryana state,She was born in Haryana state on March 19,1990.But as Mr.Singh got posted to Hyderabad to work as scientist at the 'Oil Seeds Research institute' in Hyderabad,the family had to settle there only. Saina Got her schooling and sports training in Hyderabad. Hyderabad has given her everything Her family sincerely recognizes it. So, it is quite right to call her 'Hyderabad badminton girl'

1.She is the first Indian girl to reach Indonesian Badminton open finals consecutively four times.Only once she last it and won the trophy thrice- 2009, 2010, 1nd presently in 2012

2. She is the first Indian girl to reach Quarter finals level in Olympics.She got that credit in 2008 as a teen ager.But she could not cross that level.But now , she is confident of winning the gold in coming London Olympics , starting next month-July,2012

In best form

thus, the records show that this proudful Indian girl is now in full form and her nerves are tight.She is in full form to participate in London Olympics, where she is determined to bag the gold.It sounds quite possible. But ,we should accept that luck also plays its role.Presently, she has won against the girl who is younger to her in age and higher in ranking,( Xuenui Li is world rank no.3 while Saina is no.5,) adds to this hope.

Brand Ambassador

Perhaps after indian cricketers and Sania Mirza, Saina is the only star sports person from India who is getting many companies behind her to have her as Brand Ambassadors. Now she is main Brand Ambassador to Deccan Chargers,one of the IPL teams.Her brand value ha increased by 200 percent in the last one year.There is every chance that it increases by 1000 percent in the current year itself!

London Olympics

Now Saina has represented India in London Olympics, and participated in Shuttle badminton.

She played well in the first round and also in quarter finals.She entered Semi finals.But she had to fight against the Chinese competitor,who was really the best.She did some mistakes in the first round. But fortune was at her side. Her competitor got hurt and retired.Hence she got the bronze.But, she is the first Indian lady to reach that level.Her achievement encourages many women players in India.

Denmark Open tourney Champion

Just recently, in 3rd week of October,2012, Saina got another feather added to her crown. She won Denmark open Badmonton tourney championship, and proceeded to move to another world-class tourney in Europe!

But soon after that,Saina lost in Finals at the French open. Perhaps lack of rest might have caused her greater strain.however,her achievements are great.

Will she get PADMA BHUSHAN?

She was right when she expressed her disappointment when she was not recommended for prestigious Padma Bhushan Award, the third highest civilian award given to meritorious Indian achievers. From 2013, she has made good achievements.Shw was awarded Padmashree award 5 years ago. Now she wants her to be nominated for next higher ward, concidering her achievements. Sports ministry of Govt. of India has recommended her name,lately to Home ministry. We should see whether she gets it this year itself. Weather she gets it or not, Indians feel proud of her, as she has raised Inidia's prestige at International level.
