But the real test for India's number one shuttler lies when she she plays her semi-final match against world number one, Yihan Wang of China. The match is not going to be an easy one for the Hyderabadi girl, as Wang defeated the Indian shuttler in the London Olympics semi-final as well. It could be a perfect revenge for the Indian, who has been seeded third in the competition. For the past few years, it is the Chinese shuttlers who has been a major obstacle for Saina in winning major championships.
Denmark Open has never seen the best of Saina Nehwal. The best she has finished in the competition was a second round exit last year, but she has corrected that by reaching the last four this year. Her road does not end here, as she looks determined to clinch her first Denmark Open, for which she needs to win two more matches.
Saina's performance so far needs to be praised as she could not prepare for the championship, the way she wanted to, due to lack of time. She was busy attending functions and ceremonies after her amazing performance in the London Olympics.
