Saina Nehwal Career 

When Saina started playing Badminton at age of 8, it was mainly to socialize with kids as she was coming from Haryana to an unknown culture of Hyderabad.

Everyone knew that she was going to be the next superstar when she stunned world number 2 Xu Huaiwen in the Philippines open at age of 16.

She has achieved everything on the Badminton court but her best moment was not a gold medal or championship but it was her Bronze Medal at the 2012 London Olympics. She was going through injury and lost the Semi-Finals and when it looked like it would end for Saina, she stunned everyone and played through injury to claim the Bronze medal and became the first woman Indian to do so. 

Her second biggest moment came in 2015 when she claimed the Number one spot in World Rankings and became the second Indian to do so after great Prakash Padukone. It was more special for her as one year back, she was involved in a controversy after she left her childhood coach Gopichand and shifted to Bangalore to train at Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy.

Saina is still going strong but injury has been her biggest villain in the last few years after her triumph at the 2018 Commonwealth Games where she defeated PV Sindhu in the finals. She hopes to regain her best form and revive her career.
