Saina vs Sindhu

The 82nd National Badminton Championship will come to an interesting end, with two top female shuttlers of the country battling it out in the middle for the title. It is not easy to even choose a favourite in the women's singles final.

Saina has been brilliant, calm and has used her experience to reach the final without breaking much sweat. She has had it quite easy, but Sindhu will be her biggest test in the final.

Can she surpass the biggest test?

Sindhu has replaced Saina as India's number one and the latter will be eager to prove her class and win the title.

The top seed comes into this match after a semifinals scare, where Ruthvika Shivani tested the Rio Olympics silver medallist. Sindhu won the match in three games, and she can expect a smilar game when Saina is on the other side of the court on Wednesday. 

Sindhu is a much more aggressive player and Saina will need to bring all her experience into play to counter those strokes. However, Saina will be clever and use all the angles of the court to tire Sindhu and earn points.

This women's singles final is not only going to be fought in the middle, but also in their minds. 

It is for the first time that Saina and Sindhu will be battling it out in the final of the Senior National Badminton Championships.

However, they met earlier in the year in PBL 2017, where Sindhu emerged victorious and Saina will be hoping to take revenge.
