Though she lost the game, in her I could see the thirst of becoming world’s best; a typical sports person’s mentality that occupied her attracted me. She looks quite opposite off the field. Now, no one can say that had she not suffered with the chicken-pox a week before this tournament she would have performed well.
Any ways, play it better next time Saina. You have got every thing to conquer your dreams. Just keep it simple as you always do.
And one more thing that I would like to share with you all is: I have seen Gopi Chand today, sitting beside the court as a proud coach of her. He is basically from a place nearest to my village, and I met him after he had won the “All England badminton trophy” in 2002. I still have a memory of a photograph which I had taken with him. My mother and I have gifted him a well-arranged book of his own history about his ups and depths in his professional life, with signatures of many people in its first page. And he also said that it was one of the best gifts that he had got and he wanted to keep it with him personally. I have enjoyed those moments a lot, and here I’m delighted to share it with you all. His presence in today’s match had reminded me one of my ever best memories.
