And the quality of all the finals showed why our top shuttlers should always play the Nationals. So many schoolkids turned up to watch and cheer our stars. It can only inspire more and more kids to take up the racquet.

This is Saina's third title at the Senior Nationals. Saina's movement stood out today that made all the difference. The former World No. 1 also admitted later that she was very happy with it and it totally helped her to pick Sindhu's tough shots.

This should indeed bode well ahead of the two big Superseries events coming up as Saina aims to book her berth in the Dubai World Superseries Finals.
