London 2012 badminton: Next up for Saina Nehwal – World No 1 Wang YihanZeenews Sports Bureau

London: Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal moved a step closer to realising the Olympic dream of winning the first medal in badminton for the country after reaching the semifinals of the women’s singles at the London Olympics 2012 on Thursday.

World No.5 Saina took only 39 minutes to pack off the 33-year-old veteran Dane Tine Baun at the Wembley Arena.

The bigger challenge for Saina in pursuit of gold starts here as she would now face reigning World Champion and top seed Wang Yihan for a place in the final. The Chinese has a one-sided 5-0 win loss record against the Indian, but Saina`s superb form in the competition, where she is yet to lose a game, makes one positive about her chances.

However, in the event of a loss Saina would have the chance to feature in the bronze medal play-off and bring the country its first Olympic medal from the sport.

Playing the world number one already a feather in your cap Saina. You are great and may God give you the strength to ``down`` the world number 1. You make all Indians proud and hold their heads up. Keep it up and good luck.
