Indonesia raises hopes for London, says Saina's father
Hyderabad, June 17 (ANI): Saina Nehwal's third Indonesian Open Super Series win has brought immense delight to her proud family.
Saina's father Harvir Singh termed Sunday's triumph, coming as it did within a span of seven days after winning the Thai Open on June 10, a boost for her success in next month's London Olympics.
Interacting with mediapersons here, Singh said, " This shows her enthusiasm, confidence and courage has increased. She would surely perform well in the Olympics. From today's win, I can say that we can now hope more strongly for a medal soon."
Further he noted that his daughter could be an ideal role model for all the Indian youngsters, children in particular, who want to take up sports as career.
"Saina has become a good youth icon for the children who want to take up sports as a career. So along with their studies, if they are trying to earn a name in sports then Saina's victory will help them in this regard," added Singh.
Earlier in the day at Jakarta, Saina Nehwal, ranked fifth in the world and seeded fifth in the tournament, defeated Li Xuerui of China despite being a set down, outsmarting her opponent 13-21, 22-20, 21-19 in a one hour-four minutes duel. (ANI)
