Saina Nehwal’s presence always brings hype and glitz to a badminton event, and she seems to enjoy it.
But, here in Lucknow for the Syed Modi International Grand Prix tournament, the World No. 7 is keeping herself focussed on the task at hand and working on a new plan to improve her game. Saina’s attention now is on improving her defence as it has let her down a number of times at the international level.
“Though I am good at the nets, I sometimes feel my defence is weak,’’ Saina told Hindustan Times after finishing her workout with fellow shuttler P. Kashyap on Tuesday.
“The 2010 Commonwealth Games now tops my agenda, although I have also set other goals like doing well in the Asian Games (at Guangzhou) and the (2012) Olympic Games. I know I have to work hard and also guard against injuries,” she added.
