India’s top badminton player Saina Nehwal has said that she is focusing on her game and skill for the World Championships to be held from August 11 to 16th and the results for all the upcoming tournaments including the World Championships will depend on her overall fitness. The World number 2 is preparing under the watchful eyes of Vimal Kumar for the upcoming tournaments including the World Championships.

She will play all tournaments slated for 2015-2016 which includes Japan Open, World Championships, China Open, Denmark Open, France and Hong Kong open by the end of 2015. Saina Nehwal has been in Bangalore training hard at the Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy. The 25 year old is training for 8 hours on court and off court. She spends four hours practicing badminton and the same amount of time in the gym.  

I am at Bangalore and focusing on my performances. My coach is giving me full encouragement for best performances. My training part is very good. I am getting the best possible facilities required for improvement of a badminton player, she said. Saina Nehwal became the first Indian women to reach the number 1 rank in world badminton in April but has gone down through many ups and downs before holding number 2 for one and half months.

Saina Nehwal said she could become number 1 again with some consistent performances in upcoming tournaments. My performances is showing progress and I am trying to maintain my performance by giving 100 per cent from my side as a player, she said. Saina Nehwal won the Indian Open Super series and Indian Open Grand Prix Gold. She reached the finals of All England Badminton championships in March.

The number one rank is not permanent and it changes with time& performances. Chinese Li Xuruei was number 1 for almost a year and has now slipped to number 3 in the rankings. Saina Nehwal needs to work hard if she has to get past the Chinese, Japanese players in World Championships.
