Saina Nehwal has pulled out of the Singapore Super Series, starting today, to spend more time in training to improve her game ahead of the hectic international circuit.
“Yes, I withdrew from the tournament as I feel I need some more time training to get better. There is improvement in the knee but I think some more training will help at this point,” Saina confirmed.
“I will play Asia Badminton Championship next. I will also play the Indonesia Super Series and the Sudirman Cup,” said the 2012 London Olympic bronze medalist.
While Saina will be missing in action, Sindhu, who clinched her maiden India Open at New Delhi to achieve a career-best World No. 2 ranking, will lead the Indian campaign.
