Saina Nehwal wins world junior championship
Ace shuttler Saina Nehwal on Sunday became the first Indian to clinch the World Junior badminton
Championship with a straight-game win over Japanese rival Sayaka Sato in the final.
Top seed Saina got the better of her ninth seeded Japanese rival Sayaka Sato 21-9, 21-18 in a lopsided match that lasted just 25 minutes.

"It is a great feeling to win it this time. The last time in 2006, I had lost in the finals but I am happy that I clinched the title this time," Saina, who reached the quarter-finals of the Beijing Olympics, said after the match.

"I never thought that I would play so well. The first game was easier but in the second game she was playing good smashed but I was successful in catching her on the nets. I played my back hands well and so overall I am satisfied with my performance. It was an okay sort of a match.

"However, I reckon my semi-finals match against Chinese Shixian Wang as the toughest in the tournament," she added.

With the Commonwealth Youth gold and the World Junior badminton title in her kitty, the world number 11 has now set her eyes on China and Hong Kong Open later this month.

"I am next playing China Open and Hong Kong open this month and I am confident of doing well there as well," the national champion said.

National coach Pullela Gopichand said Saina played like a champion all through the tournament.

"She played like a champion. It is good to see her wining convincingly through out the tournament. She has really done well, hats off to her," Gopichand said.

!!! KEEP GOING KID ..... KEEP THE INDIAN TRI-COLOR FLYING HIGH !!!
