Virat Kohli’s aggression impresses Saina Nehwal
India’s number one badminton star Saina Nehwal has said that she now wants to emulate superstar batsman and Team India’s Test skipper Virat Kohli’s aggressive approach in her matches.
The Rio-bound shuttler , who recently clinched her second Australian Open title after beating World No. 12 Sun Yu of China in the final, said this while replying to Kohli’s congratulatory tweet.
“Congratulations @NSaina So happy for you. Onwards and Upwards always #ProudIndian,” Kohli had tweeted after Saina’s win in Sydney.
Replying to Kohli, Saina wrote, “I would love to get more aggression like u for winning more matches I m trying hard for that Thank u so much.”
Saina is among the seven shuttlers to compete in the Rio Games, starting August 5 in Rio de Janeiro. At the 2012 London Olympics, Saina was the India’s first badminton player to win a Olympic medal – Bronze medal.
