It has been witnessed in the past that it is the Chinese players who dominate badminton, where she said, “India are much better talent wise (as compared to China). We have one academy and they have thousands of academies and also Olympic champions, coaches, etc.” With such kind of facilities, it is evident for Chinese players to win most of the tournaments world over. Hence, there is also a serious need for India to build such academies, if they are to be considered as a dominant force in badminton. Nehwal said, “There should be academies in every place (state) so people also get a stadium to play.”
Sania who is yet to attain the number one ranking has recorded a best of number two ranking and is currently ranked three believes that being ranked number one is not impossible, as she said in the video, “It is not easy, but I don't say it is impossible.” Sania has had an impressive year, where she has won as many as 5 singles titles along with 2 runner up finishes. Sania added, “With the kind of improvement, I am showing, of course, it (attaining number one rank) is not very far, but have to win each and every opponent.”
Sania who is still not in top fitness is eagerly awaiting for the Super Series final, which is going to be played among the top eight badminton players next month in China.
