India's ace shuttler, Saina Nehwal is our best hope for 2012 London Olympics. A Khel Ratna award winner, Nehwal burst into the scene at the age of 16 when she helped India get team bronze in 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.

Saina Nehwal is the first Indian woman to reach the singles quarterfinal stage at the Olympics (2008 Olympics).
Nehwal reached her career best ranking in 2010 when she rose to number two spot. She also won her career's second Super Series title in the same year.

The world number 5, who won two back-to-back titles last month, is the only shuttler capable of challenging the Chinese might in women's singles.
