The world No. 1 complained of back pain after his third-round match against India’s Rajiv Ouseph at the world championships in Paris last Wednesday.

The strain proved to be too much for Chong Wei and he went on to suffer an unexpected defeat by former world and Olympic champion Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia in the quarter-finals the following day.

Saina Nehwal slams Commonwealth Games organizers preparations she regretted that the country was not yet ready to host such a big sport tournament like Commonwealth Games.

India’s badminton star Saina Nehwal is one of the brand ambassadors of the Commonwealth Games (CWG) concerns about the completion of stadiums with less than a month to go for the event.

“Looking at the stadiums and looking at the progress, I don’t really think we are capable of holding such big tournaments because you know, I have seen many Games like the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne (in 2006) and Olympic Games in Beijing (in 2008). Compared to that its not upto the mark,” Saina told reporters on the sidelines of a function at Pullela Gopichand Badminton Academy.

The Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award winner Saina Nehwal thought that everything would be ready before the Games’ opening ceremony of Commonwealth Games on October 3.

Saina Nehwal comment on the lack of preparation in Commonwealth Games was as surpries to everyone as she is one of the six sportspersons chosen as the Games’ brand ambassadors.
