Jij het nieuws, wij een tikkie!

Worlds NO. 1 in women singles, Saina Nehwal, had a tough day in Denmark. An injury during the World Championships in Jakarta still had a big influence on her game. She lost to Minatsu Mitani from Japan 21-18/21-13.

"I am worried about the form that i am facing. Obviously I would be playing well if I was fit, but i am not in a good shape right now. I am at 60 per cent. That is why my movements was not good today. It started after the world championships. I had a problem with my right hip, and after that I took ten to days of break, so I have only played to and half weeks. But you cannot get back to full fitness," Saina Nehwal said after the match. On sunday she is leaving for France and the French Open.

It is second time in a row, she loses to the japanese.

"Unfortunately I had to face the japanese in this tournament again, and she is a good player who picks up everything, so it is tough to play against her, and that is what happened. I was not able to move that well. The movements were heavy. So, definitely I need to improve my fitness to get back stronger," Nehwal said.
