Along with this, Saina is keeping her hopes high about winning a medal this year after clinching Bronze in London.

“Last time, I was very fortunate to get bronze medal. So, hopefully, this time, if I play, I hope to get at least one medal for the country. I hope to be injury-free to participate in Rio Olympics,” Saina said.

Saina, who is currently recovering from a foot injury, said that she is proud to represent the company for the third time. She had earlier pulled out from the Badminton Asia team Championships, Lucknow Open and the South Asian Championship due to her injury.

“I opted out from PBL and South Asian Championship, and also other tournaments, because I wanted to be fully fit by February. I knew I will not have time to recover post-June. I was completely out of shape … I am now playing better. Let’s see how it goes about,” she said.

Saina also shared something about her marriage.

“I have no fear either. Every girl has to get married. Marriage will happen – it has to happen. There is a particular time for it,” she said.
