Saina Nehwal, PV Sindhu set ideal example for budding players: Sachin Tendulkar

PV Sindhu vs Saina Nehwal at Commonwealth Games 2018 Badminton Final

Saina Nehwal couldn't feel her legs, after beating compatriot PV Sindhu for the Commonwealth Games badminton women's singles gold medal on Sunday.

"I only watched the end part of the second game". The 28-year-old shuttler Saina's win has catapulted her to the 12th spot as per the Badminton World Federation or BWF as per the Badminton World Federation or BWF ranking. "My match against Kirsty Gilmour went on for a long while and probably I aggravated the problem a bit".

A decade older than the Indian, Lee kept his best for the last, showing off the legendary reflexes that have earned him cult status in global badminton, in the deciding third game."I started well but I made too many mistakes in my defence". Saina, who was playing her 11th match in 11 days, had a superior head to head record against Sindhu. The world number 3 Sindhu roared back in the game and made it 18-20 but Saina's resilience helped her win the first set 21-18.

In the medal table, India is only behind Australia (198 medals) and England (166 medals).

). She has won a lot of points from the front court in the game.

Saina Nehwal dropped her racquet and screamed like a manic.


Nehwal and Sindhu have played each other three times at global tournaments. Thank you for reading the coverage on Commonwealth Games 2018.

Sindhu took two back to back points take a 6-4 lead before Saina reduced the gap with a deceptive smash that totally outfoxed her rival. He had declared to his country's press on Saturday that he would come to the gold medal match like a wounded tiger that would show his prey no mercy; and he kept his word.

Joshna Chinappa and Dipika Pallikal, the gold medal winners in the last edition of the Commonwealth Games had to settle for a silver medal this time around in the Women's Doubles category. A third game could have swung either way, probably more in favour of Sindhu, so she wanted to keep that possibility firmly shut.

Like Saina, Srikanth needed a hit-and-run approach against Lee. And once he cut down on his speedy, attacking mien, Srikanth was like a ship adrift in the maelstrom of Lee's controlled aggression. He will face Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei on Sunday.
