Saina wins Singapore Open Super Series crown

Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal [ Images ] clinched her second Super Series title, winning the Singapore Open with a straight-game triumph over qualifier Tzu Ying Tai in the final on Sunday.

The top seed Indian ace needed just 33 minutes to beat Chinese Taipei's Tai 21-18, 21-15 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The world No 6, who was the lone Indian left in the fray after others crashed out by the semi-final stage, had bagged her maiden Super Series title last June at the Indonesian Open.

The in-form Saina came into the Singapore Open after winning the India [ Images ] Open Grand Prix [ Images ] Gold title last week.

In a game that was close to start with, Saina was locked 18-18 with her opponent at one stage. She had seven smash winners to show against her Tai's three in the opening game.

In the second game, Saina displayed a better net game and outwitted her Tai in rallies to emerge triumphant.

The jubilant 20-year-old said she was slightly jittery at the start but gained in confidence as the match progressed.

"It feels great. I was nervous at the start of the match but I maintained my strategy of playing more rallies," she said.

"I was down 14-18 in the first game but I just told myself that 'play your best and give your 100 per cent'. I think that really worked well for me," she added.

way to go saina. sania should learn from her.

i guess sania never really had any talent, she was just pushed by the media. sania's achievements dont justify the superstar treatment given to her.

I think Saina is in world top 10 and still she dont get even 20% glamor/acknowledgment what sania got when she was ranked among top 50

Biased Indian Media:x:x
