The Indian ace, who finished runners-up at the China Open — a title she had won in 2014 — last week, consulted doctors at the Apollo hospital following pain in her right leg. “We came here to examine the pain in the leg. It was swollen so she underwent a scan and reports suggests stress on bone. Since she played in China Open it aggravated the pain, it put stress on the heel bone but doctors said there is nothing to worry too much,” said Saina’s father Harvir Singh.
