Of course in each of Saina’s tournaments, the opponents are the masters of the sport. Malaysians, Chinese, Singaporeans are all the exact reason that badminton is never underestimated in Asia! And the Thais are no less. Their agility and flexibility on court can be as daunting just as any other South East Asian country. Saina Nehwal did win the finals however she had to swat a whole lot before she reached there. There were times that seemed to get the Indian the points due to the errors committed by Thailand’s Ratchanok Inthanon rather than her own tactics. But a win is a win nevertheless and that is exactly what she needs before she heads out for the Olympics next month.

The world number 5 beat Ratchanok Inthanon by 19-21 21-15 21-10 at the C U Complex in Bangkok making this her second win of the year. The start of the match seemed be a little rusty for the ace shuttler however as the game progressed, she found her pace and kept it well going till she knew she had it.

Inthanon obviously did not make things any easier. She had a fierce attack the whole game and made Nehwal sweat her last sweat for every point. At the starting there seemed to be quite the gap between the two players as the number 11’s swiftness was getting hard to halt. Saina had lost to Inthanon last year at the Sudirman Cup. But things were about to change.

Saina made her recovery and had every inch of the court to her shots. After a certain point of time, Inthanon started to falter a little bit and that is when Saina pounced to the occasion and took over the game to her name.

Comparatively, it can be said that Saina had her moves all set and was placing each of then at the correct time. Her shots speared through the court each time and it was just a little too difficult for the Thai to match up to it.

The Indians are certainly clinching nothing besides the final title as the grand Olympics awaits!
