Saina Nehwal is now the top 3 female badminton player in the world. She used to occupy the world no. 1 ranking too. Congrats Saina
In the 2010, Commonwealth Games in her home country in New Delhi, India, Saina beat Malaysia's top player - Wong Mew Choo in the mixed team event. However Malaysia went on to win the gold courtesy of their men's world no. 1 Lee Chong Wei, men doubles' world no. 1 Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong and also the mixed doubles pair of Boon Heong and Wong Pei Ty.
In the individual event, Saina Nehwal created history by blanking her opponent from Northern Ireland, Caroline Black 21-0, 21-2.

INDIA'S 3 BADMINTON GREATS...
However i am tempted to blog about Saina Nehwal - a badminton player from India.
However, India had their own badminton greats - notably 3 persons.
The late Syed Modi, the 1982 Commonwealth Games champion, 1980 All England champion Prakash Padukone and very recently Pullela Gopichand who captured the 2001 All England crown, but the list STOP there. There are no new notabale badminton players from India.
