New Delhi: After giving Chinese shuttlers a tough fight over the years, top-ranked shuttler Saina Nehwal's new challenge is to tame down nemesis Carolina nemesis of Spain.

The Spaniard recently beat Nehwal in two major finals -- All England Badminton and World Championships. And as Japan Open is set to start, Nehwal is eager to take the revenge from the number two ranked shuttler, who has kept Nehwal at bay of late.

“I would definitely be looking to beat her. That is one aim at Japan Open. She has defeated me twice in two major finals and it's time to find ways to get past her.

“I have beaten almost all the top-ranked Chinese players in last few months after shifting to Bengaluru and this time the effort would be to beat Marin," Nehwal told DNA.

Ace Indian shuttler is also looking for consistency in her game.

"Everything is going on fine at this stage. I am training well under Vimal sir and the results are also coming up. But the important part is to maintain the consistency and beat top players on regular basis. That way, you would get better at your game which is very important," she added.
