Just witnessed Live on TV a brilliant Commonwealth Games 2010 Gold Medal Womens Finals in Badminton between Indian Ace Shuttler and World No 3,Saina Nehwal and Malaysian Mew Choo Wong …..Saina won after being a game and matchpoint down !..19/21,23/21 and 21/13
The Rallies were long and all shots in the book were being played….pushes,drives,tosses,cross courts drops and smashes…Phew !…heart and breath stopped when Saina was down Matchpoint in the second !
Saina has now played Wong five times now…and beaten her everytime…this was the closest and tightest finish….her Gold is India’s 38th at these Commonwealth Games in New Delhi…helps India shunts England down to third spot in Final Medals Tally….last evening England were leading with 37 Gold medals to India’s 36….Earlier this morning,again in badminton,our Womens Doubles pair of Jwala and Ashwini created history by getting Gold to give India her 37th Gold and Equal England..Saina’s Gold decided the Medals Tally …India with 38 Gold to England’s 37 is second behind Australia
