Lok Sabha felicitates badminton star Saina Nehwal

New Delhi, Dec 13 (PTI) Lok Sabha today felicitated ace Badminton player Saina Nehwal for winning the Hong Kong Super Series tournament, a move that was facilitated after Opposition members gave a brief break to their agitation for JPC probe into 2G spectrum allocation.

Speaking on behalf of members, Speaker Meira Kumar said Saina had emphatically established herself as one of the best players through her "stupendous performance".

Saina defeated Asian Games winner Shixian Wang of China to win the tournament.

Noting that Saina had won the fourth major international title during this year, Kumar said, "honourable members, I am sure all of you will join me in conveying our heartiest congratulations" to her for the victory yesterday.

"Her achievements are a matter of national pride and source of inspiration for many a budding sportspersons of our country," the Speaker said amid thumping of desks by the members.

'Hong Kong title will make up for Asiad disappointment'

After clinching her career's fourth Super Series title with a thumping victory in the Hong Kong Open, ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal [ Images ] said the triumph has made up for the disappointment of last month's Asian Games debacle.

"It was fantastic especially since I didn't do well in the Asian Games. I didn't train much before this tournament and didn't expect to win. May be because I practiced a lot before the Asian Games so I decided to relax but I am very happy to win it here," said Saina, who had lost in the quarter-finals of the Asian Games in China last month.

Saina beat China's Shixian Wang 15-21, 21-16, 21-17 to lift her third Super Series title of the year and said she was confident of pulling off a win even though she lost the first game.

"I was nervous in the first game but I was confident at the same time. After I won the second game I gained more confidence. I was on the slower side and I expected her to hit negative shots and she did.

"In the third game the strategy was to have a lead before I moved to the slower side and I was leading 11-9. I was moving well today and was confident of pulling off the match," she said.

Saina NehwalSaina is the only Indian female shuttler to break the Chinese stranglehold in badminton and the Hyderabadi said she went into the match with a never-say-die attitude.

"It is always difficult to beat Chinese players because they are physically strong and have good strokes but it is not impossible. I went with this attitude," she said.

Saina had earlier won back-to-back titles – Indian Open Grand Prix [ Images ], Singapore Open Super Series and defended the Indonesian Super Series -- before clinching the gold medal in the Commonwealth Games [ Images ] in October.

Saina, who dropped to fourth in the world rankings, is likely to inch closer to the number one spot with this resounding victory.

"I always wanted to win more tournaments and also become the number one but I didn't expect to be number one by this year one and it would be another big dream come true. It will give me a lot of confidence," she said.

The world number four Indian said she would take a break and would be back to training for next season which would be a year of 2012 London [ Images ] Olympic [ Images ] qualification.

"Just want to relax a bit and then it would be back to training and gear up for the Olympic qualification year next season," she said.
