I had no idea of how grave my injury was at that time. "It is because of the faith and belief that my coach and parents have in me, I am back again", Saina informed. Reaching the semifinals automatically guarantees a player of winning a bronze and Saina became the second Indian after PV Sindhu to do so in the championships.
A good serve gave Saina another point as she moved to game point when her rival made an error in judgement at backline and the experienced Indian sealed it when the Scot found the net.
Newhal had surgery on her knee after a disappointing Olympic Games and now admits she was in agony for the most of past year. Saina even contemplated an early retirement. I came to these Championships with several goals. "I think I am improving in each round". "In the third, Saina started well and that helped her in winning the quarterfinal".
Overall, the two golden girls will be bringing home India's sixth and seventh medals from this prestigious world meet. Thailand's Ratchanok Intanon, two-time champion Carolina Marin, Japan's Nozomi Okuhara also entered the final eight. I felt really good.
And on Saturday, Saina started the semi-final by switching on the beast mode.
In the second game, Gilmour struggled with the length as few of her lifts went long but Saina was also erratic, allowing Gilmour to lead 6-4 at one stage.
The 2-time bronze medallists assures a medal at the Worlds for India! A surprise jump smash from Sindhu earned her another point and she wrested the 11-8 advantage with a lovely drop. After being a game down and trailing 5-16 in the second, Srikanth mounted an impressive comeback and narrowed the lead down to two points at 17-19.
Denmark's Viktor Axelsen, striving to emulate compatriot Peter Rasmussen, who was the last European man to win this event in 1997, mixed power and precision to down Taiwan's Chen Chou-tien 21-18, 20-22, 21-16 in 74 minutes. The third and final game was energy sapping to say the least as the players engaged in long rallies and it was the four-point streak from 17-15 that saw Sindhu ultimately sail through. Well she has proved her critics wrong again. The victor of 20 titles on the circuit turned back the clock in Glasgow with her precision and solid defense, which was a delight to badminton fans. In the season-opening Premier Badminton League, the Indian shuttler often spoke about her knee concerns and it seemed to have affected her a lot, mentally. (It is) surprising because we do not have enough time to recover and take the necessary steps because I just could not.
