Pulella Gopichand is humble enough to admit that the Dronacharya Award would be a big boost as far as his coaching career is concerned. But more than that, he believes that this award will inspire him to produce more Saina Nehwals in future. For him, it’s also a big encouragement for badminton in the country. Pulella Gopichand

“I believe this award will be celebrated by the entire badminton fraternity in our country. And it will inspire not only the upcoming players, but also the seasoned professionals and experienced coaches,” Gopichand told The Indian Express. “As a former player and coach, I’m doing my bit. But it’s really up to the administrators to nurture talents. Better infrastructure and other facilities are needed for the growth of the game in the country,” he added.

New Delhi: Pullela Gopichand expects Saina Nehwal to make the last four stage of the World Badminton Championships to be held in Hyderabad next month, even though he said he would like to refrain from any predictions in what he expects to be a 'very tough tournament.'

"I would say that the semifinals would be a good target for Saina, though one should think about one match at a time when one approaches such a big tournament," said Gopichand, who has nurtured Saina with his vast experience.

"I feel there is a good chance the home crowd will spur her on to do better. She has had a good break of three or four weeks, which is the right way to approach a tournament of this magnitude," said the former all-England champion at the draw ceremony for the August 10 to 16 event.

Chong Wei, whose previous best achievement at the world meet was a bronze in Anaheim in 2005, triumphed over Lin Dan in their last Super Series meeting in the Swiss Open final in April.

NEW DELHI, July 19 (Bernama) -- Organisers of the Yonex-Sunrise World Badminton championship are meeting round-the-clock to ensure no security slip-ups which could jeopardise the safety of players during the week-long tournament in Hyderabad next month.

The Badminton World Federation (BWF) officials and Indian organisers held several rounds of meetings on Saturday and today (Sunday) to continuously review the security arrangements for the major tournament.

Amidst the twin bombings in the luxurious hotels in Jakarta last Friday where nine people were killed and nearly 50 injured, BWF and Indian authorities are not taking security matters lightly.
