Ace shuttler Saina Nehwal is India's best bet to win a medal in badminton at the London Olympics, said former great Nandu Natekar.

"She is the only one who has reached that level... been in the top five for sometime. So naturally, she is the best hope.

But it has to be seen what kind of effort she puts in ahead of the Olympics," the Pune-based Natekar said on the sidelines of an event, where he was felicitated along with former billiards world champion Michael Ferreira.
