Feeling fresh & good, says Saina Nehwal
Bangalore: Returning to action after more than two months, London Olympics bronze medallist shuttler Saina Nehwal on Wednesday said she is feeling fresh and good after five weeks of hard training.
The world number five Indian, who skipped the China Masters, Japan Open and the Senior National Championship last month, will be back in competition at the Denmark Super Series beginning on October 16.
"Feeling good, been training hard for the last five weeks," said Saina, who is leaving for Denmark on Saturday.
"I am feeling fresh and I am feeling good. So, hopefully, these two tournaments should be good for me," she added.
The 22-year-old will be starting as the top-seed in Yonex French Open Superseries commencing on October 23 following the absence of three top-ranked Chinese players.
"I am back in my proper condition," added Saina, who said she did not take part in the China and Japan Open championships recently as her training was insufficient.
Earlier, Saina and London Olympics bronze medallist boxer Mary Kom were presented with a three bedroom flat each here by real estate firm Commune India.
