Saina Nehwal wins bronze medal

London: After the defeat in semi-final clash against world No. 1 Wang Yihan on Friday, India’s ace shuttler Saina Nehwal all set to face world No. 2 China’s Wang Xin in the bronze medal play off at London Olympics on Saturday.

Saina is the first Indian shuttler to play in an Olympic semi-final, lost 21-13 21-13 to Yihan on Friday.

Earlier, the 22-year-old committed too many unforced errors to lag 6-11 at the interval in the first game. Although Saina tried to come back with the help of some brilliant net play, the Chinese employed some immaculate placements and powerful smashes to lead 1-0.

In the second game, Saina tried to match her superior rival and did trouble her to enjoy a one-point lead at the break. But the Chinese world champion soon started forcing Saina to commit errors and moved ahead.

Yihan anticipated the shots and was better prepared and, with Saina hitting wide and long, the Chinese had no problem in cementing her place in the finals.

  1. Is television coverage better in India than it is here in the United States? NBC is giving us such a convoluted mish mash of coverage that I can’t keep up with anything.

  2. I’d several questions concerning this concern in the first place so you own smashed all of these books through having to present any work of genius of your post.

  3. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
