Saina Nehwal wins World Junior Badminton Championship

A few days after Vishwanathan Anand won the World Chess Championship, young Indian Shuttler Saina Nehwal has won the World Junior Badminton Championship Title today. (Oct 2, 2008) This championship tournament was held at Pune, India. Saina Nehwal is a young shuttler from Hyderabad. Saina Nehwal beat her Japanese opponent Sayaka Sato 21-9, 21-18 in straight sets.

The match lasted for only 25 minutes. Saina Nehwal won the Commonwealth Junior Games gold recently. She has progressed upto the Quarterfinals of Beijing Olympics. It is notable that Saina Nehwal lost in the finals of this championship tournament in 2006.

Saina Nehawal said, “It is a great felling to win this time..”, after clinching the title. She will be playing China Open and Hong Kong Open later this month. She is hoping to do well there also. She is also the National Champion and Chinese Taipei Open. Her coach Gopichand said that She really played like a Champion. Saina Nehwal is currently ranked No:11 in world ranking. I like to see one of the ‘1′ to go away…

Jai Hind!!…
