I look to get back to full fitness: Saina

New Delhi: Recovering from an ankle injury, star India shuttler Saina Nehwal said she will look to get back to her full fitness during the three weeks break after the India Open next month.

“I had this ankle injury before this tournament, so I am playing a match after three weeks, there was this ankle inflammation. In the morning when I was practicing there was some pain. Ankle injury is tough because the lunges depend on the ankles,” Saina said.

“I will get more time, 2-3 weeks after India open. After the World Championship there was not enough time when I joined Gopi sir, there were too many tournaments and after that I had this injury. It is still not upto the mark. There is a lot of speed still required, I need to be in best shape to play against the best,” she added.

The 2012 Olympics bronze medallist shuttler said she was doing the training part but would need to strengthen herself while playing.

“You need to play with this, you can’t rest and heal it.

So, I’ll need more time to get full training and play against top players,” she told reporters after pulling off a comeback win over Michelle Li in the PBL last night.

Asked when did she get the injury, Saina said: “I got it in September end or October start. It is an overuse injury, I was close to qualifying for Dubai Supers Series.

“It was not that I couldn’t play. But there comes a time when the muscle stops taking the load and it goes to the join and I was feeling the plain. I felt a lot of pain in November end. I was not able to give rest, so I need time.”

She said she would want to be fully fit before setting targets.

“Fitness and stamina are important and comes only after that. I don’t want to keep any targets, keep body fit and rest will follow.”

Saina feels the new BWF calendar will end the domination of one player and there will be more new champions in this crammed schedule.

“You will not have one player dominating in this new schedule. It will be like every tournament a new player winning, there won’t be one champion like we saw in the past like Lin Dan,” Saina said.
