The 25-year-old Saina had been suffering from a abdominal pain which affected her performance at Japan, Denmark and France Super Series where she made early exits. Also there are some issues with her Achilles heels but the Indian is upbeat about a good show here.
"I had some abdominal pain and little discomfort in my heel but now I am fine. I trained hard in the last few weeks and I am really looking forward to the tournament. It is an Olympic year and it is an important event. I will give my best," said Saina.
The top seeded Indian will take on China's Sun Yu in the opening round. Even though Saina has a 4-1 record against the Chinese with the only defeat coming in the 2013 China Open in Shanghai, the World No. 11 might prove to be a formidable opponent.
In men's singles, Srikanth too had been troubled by injury and poor form ever since he stood on the podium at the Indian Open in New Delhi. The Hyderabadi had to skip the Asia Championship because of a pain in shin and then he made early exits at Japan, Korea, Denmark and France.
