“Saina – new hope of indian sport”

       This is my first blog and what a coincidence I am writing about my second favorite sportperson. In india the most famous sport is cricket. From many year this sport rule over indian fans and it will rule for years but in such time many players like Leander pace, saina nehwal etc keep other sport alive and today saina achieve a milestone in her career. She become no 1 player in women badminton. What a great player.
            She born on 17 March 1990. She was passionate about her career in badminton. She started her international career In 2006, Saina became the under-19 national champion and created history by winning the prestigious Asian Satellite Badminton tournament (India Chapter) twice, becoming the first player to do so. In 2006, Saina appeared on the global scene when she became the second Indian woman to win a 4-star tournament, the Philippines Open.[9] Entering the tournament as the 86th seed, Saina went on to stun several top seeded players including the then world number four Xu Huaiwen before defeating Julia Wong Pei Xian of Malaysia for the title. The same year Saina was also the runner up at the 2006 BWF World Junior Championships, where she lost a hard fought match against top seed Chinese Wang Yihan. She did one better in the 2008 by becoming the first Indian to win the World Junior Badminton Championships by defeating ninth seeded Japanese Sayaka Sato 21–9, 21–18. She is the first Indian to win a medal in Badminton at the Olympics. She achieved this feat by winning the Bronze medal at the London Olympics 2012 on 4 August 2012. She is the first Indian to win the World Junior Badminton Championships and was also the first Indian to win a Super Series tournament, by clinching the Indonesia Open on 21 June 2009. She also won the 2014 China Open Super Series Premier in November, 2014. Saina is supported by the Olympic Gold Quest.On March 7, 2015, she reached the finals of the All England Open Badminton Championship where she lost to Carolina Marin in three sets.
              All above this achievement she has great struggle in her life. 1)Few months ago there is controversy due change in her coach. Media criticism her but she stand still.and second incident happens When she born her grandma refuse to see her because is girl child. This bitter truth of indian society. But her parent stand beside her #respect.
            So respect girls. They have potential to do something which will be not done by anyone else.
           I think that it for today. Once again congrats saina for achieving such rear feat. #great player#respect
