That was a great game of badminton and an absolutely memorable way of celebrating Republic Day for Indian fans!

Let us hope this inspires Saina to try and get the title!
...
As for Sindhu, she did try in the second game and looked in control for quite some time as she played fast and aggressive points. But she just allowed Saina to come back and play a brilliant tactical game of offense and defense that ultimately broke down Sindhu. And whatever little chances Sindhu had, she squandered them all due to errors.
...
WHAT A BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE THAT WAS FROM SAINA NEHWAL!!!!! That performance surely validates the fact that she IS WELL AND TRULY BACK!!!!!


Moving better, thinking better and most importantly, she is employing all the right tactics to blunt an attacking player's aggressive game!

This will surely stand her in good stead as the season progresses!
