Saina Nehwal regains World No. 2 ranking

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: India's champion shuttler Saina Nehwal regained the World No. 2 ranking again on Thursday with 68811.2637 points.

It may be recalled that the 20-year-old Saina was ranked World No. 4 before the recent Hong Kong Open which she eventually won to make it her third Super Series title this year.

Wang Xin of China is ranked World No. 1 (71192.407 points), while Wang Shixian, also of China, is ranked No. 3 (67176.400 points) as per the latest BWF rankings released today.

“It is always a nice feeling to finish the year as No. 2 in the world. I am now one step closer to realising one of my dreams — to be World No. 1,” Saina told The Hindu on Thursday evening.

Recovering well

“I am recovering well from the swollen right ankle right now and hope to be in perfect frame of mind and body for the Malaysian Super Series and Korean Super Series,” Saina said. Hopefully, if I regain the form which I had shown earlier this year and win the big events, then I can be the No. 1.

“However, let me clarify that I am not obsessed with these rankings. It is only a matter of personal satisfaction.”
