Saina Nehwal happy with historic medal, talks about Sindhu's chances in the final

Saina Nehwal, on Monday, became the first Indian woman to win a badminton medal at the Asian Games. 

She went down in straight games to world number one Tai Tzu Ying but finished an impressive campaign with a bronze. 

"I am happy I could get a medal. But the point is to fight with each and every player, it's not about a medal but to win it. This tournament is as good as Olympics, just that we do not have Carolina here," Saina said.

The veteran Indian shuttler also revealed why Tai is among the best in the circuit and what one can do to beat her. 

"It would be 50-50. Sindhu is taller and has more option to counter, she can play shots I can't," Saina added. 

"Her net is quite strong, she has a variety of shots from the net, so you have the chance to play at the back and open up the court, that's why I thought at the start I could play deep back initially. She definitely she cracks, but you need to stick on with her till the end."

Big badminton final in focus on Day 10

The biggest match of the day will be the women's singles badminton final, in which India's PV Sindhu will be taking on world number one Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei. 

Match to start after 11:30 am IST

There is a lot of hype around the match and Sindhu herself has conceded that it isn't going to be easy for her. 

There will be pressure on the young Indian shuttler. She has been extremely consistent over the last few years and her performances at the biggest stages of badminton have been impressive. 

However, the gold medal has been elusive. Since losing the Rio Olympic final to Carolina Marin, the Hyderabad shuttler has gone down in four major tournament finals, including this year's Commonwealth Games and World Championships title matches. 

With a tremendous burden of expectations, Sindhu will be going out to achieve what seems to be a tough task. 

Tai has been unstoppable this year, having a 38-3 record in the ongoing season. The Chinese Taipei shuttler made light work of Saina Nehwal in the semi-final even as the Indian shuttler was giving it her best. 

Also, Sindhu has not managed to beat Tai in their last five meetings, with her last win over the numero uno coming in November 2016.
