“The Commonwealth Games singles gold is a bigger achievement even compared to the two Super Series titles I won earlier this year,” star shuttler Saina Nehwal said.

Saina, present at the Gopi Chand Academy here with her other teammates, doubles gold medallists Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponappa, men’s singles bronze medallist P. Kashyap, said the Delhi Games experience was very impressive she would never stop thinking about easily.

“It was the most exciting final and the most satisfying win in my career. The best part is the crowd support. I had never such support anywhere before,” Saina said.

Saina also did not fail to show gratitude “Let me also take the chance to thank Gopi Sir, Bhaskar Babu Sir (assistant coach) and the physio Kiran for their wonderful support,” she added.

A visibly elated Jwala said she was incalculably pleased with the doubles gold. “No one gave us a chance, except our own coaches and support staff. And, we demonstrated how sturdy we were mentally and game-wise in such a big event like this.”

“Personally, I have gone through a tough phase and to come out of that and pick a gold in Delhi Games is an unforgettable experience,” Jwala said.

Ashwini saying she enjoyed playing with Jwala said, “We had lot of fun, drama and put our heart and soul into the preparations for the Games and the end-result was a moment to cherish.”

Kashyap felt that this bronze in Delhi Games gave him the confidence to aim big in the coming days. “Beating former All England champion Mohammed Hashim was a tremendous experience and winning the bronze against Chetan (Anand) is one thing which I consider moving one step forward in my desire to win bigger events.”
