Right from the time she shocked World No. 5 Wang Chen on way to the quarterfinals of the 2008 Beijing Olympics to her stupendous victory over World No. 3 Lin Wang in the final of the Indonesian Open Super Series recently, Saina Nehwal’s progress has been sure and steady. By V. V. Subrahmanyam.
Saina should aim for number one spot
Saina Nehwal’s feat — winning the Indonesian Open Super Series badminton championship recently — is a remarkable achievement which puts her right among the top five in the world.
Glover realises a dream
The champion, ranked No. 71 in the world, started crying as he walked off the 18th green, a winner by two shots. It was safe to assume tears will have been shed elsewhere, albeit for entirely different reasons. By Lawrence Donegan
Lost in translation?
Tennis can be brutal but is nothing compared with what can happen at the presser after matches. By Kevin Mitchell.
Relaxed and ready for the Ashes challenge
Andrew Strauss, the England captain, tells Donald McRae that he believes his side can exploit Australia’s vulnerabilities.
Pieces are falling into place
Until recently the 2009 Ashes series seemed destined to be dull. With every passing day, though, the sides gather strength and the prospects of a gripping contest increase, writes Peter Roebuck.
Driven by natural gifts
Colin Milburn brought a refreshing breath of aggression back into a virtually moribund county game. Spectators flocked to the Wantage Road county ground to see his innings. He was the darling of the crowd and he seldom disappointed his fans, writes Frank Tyson.
It’s time to act
The roaring success of Twenty20 is posing a serious threat to the other formats of the game, and quite obviously, it becomes imperative for the administrators to find ways and means to save them very quickly.
Teens’ involvement amazing
Despite having a sizable number of achievers at the Asian and the World level, sailing is still hovering at the bottom, in terms of corporate and public support, writes K. Keerthivasan.
How old is too old?
No sensible club would surely risk paying Michael Owen other than on a match to match basis, so little guarantee is there of his playing regularly.
Clean racing is the key
The hierarchy on both sides of the Formula One divide should end its petty quarrels and give spectators what they want — racing, writes Maurice Hamilton.
