Thai high for Saina

New Delhi, June 10
Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal got a shot in the arm ahead of the next month's Olympics in July-August as she lifted the Thailand Open Grand Prix Gold title after rallying to beat Thailand's Ratchanok Inthanon in the final in Bangkok today.

The 22-year-old world number five Indian beat Inthanon 19-21 21-15 21-10 in Bangkok for her second title of the year after the Swiss Open win in March. The top seeded Indian was the lone top-10 player in the tournament.

It was her play close to the net that made the difference in the outcome of the match. She earned almost half of her points through net winners in contest. Agencies
