Still recuperating from a foot injury, World championship silver medallist Saina Nehwal today exuded confidence of regaining her fitness ahead of the prestigious BWF World Superseries Finals to be held in Dubai from December 9.
“Still I am on the way to recovery. It is not hundred per cent. I am just doing my recovery and I hope to soon recover from my injury and then, I will speak about my preparations (for the World Super series),” she told PTI.
More than a week ago, World No. 2 Saina underwent a scan to diagnose her Achilles tendon problems and was prescribed rest for a couple of weeks.
The Indian ace, who finished runners-up at the China Open — a title she had won in 2014, had withdrawn from the Hong Kong Open due to the injury.
Replying to a query, Saina said her injury had affected her performance in China Open where she had lost to Tai Tzu Ying of the Chinese Taipei.
“Yes it did (affect my performance). I was actually in pain and by the time I reached the finals it became a little too much. Still, I was very happy I made to the final of China Open again. It is a very big achievement after the world championship,” she said.
