HONG KONG - “It is like a dream come true,” Indian badminton ace Saina Nehwal said Sunday after defeating China’s Shixian Wang to win the Hong Kong Open championship.
“I am very happy that I am finishing the year like this. It is like a dream come true,” Saina told TimesNow television channel.

She said that after losing the first game, she became confident “because I was moving well on the court… I knew she would hit some strokes… The third was set was very crucial.
“I was very, very confident throughout. I was always confident after the second game.”
Saina said she wanted to prove herself. “Winning this match was very important for me. I am really happy.”
