Women’s Singles: Saina Nehwal

India's most promising women shuttler Saina Nehwal will put India's challenge at the Beijing Olympics. The wonder-girl from Hyderabad has made her mark at the international arena in a very short span of time.

Saina became the first Indian woman to win, a four-star badminton event, 2006 Philippines Open. She is currently being trained under the watchful eyes of former All-England champion Pullela Gopichand.

Saina burst into the international scene by claiming the Junior Czech Open in the year 2003. She is the only Indian women badminton player thus far who had won the Asian Satellite Badminton Tournament (India Chapter) twice besides being the finalist of World Junior Championship in the year 2006.
