Rio-bound Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal may have just clinched the Australian Open Super Series title, but she wants to be as aggressive as India Test skipper Virat Kohli so that she can win more matches
Indian badminton ace Saina Nehwal has just clinched the Australian Open Super Series title in Sydney, but it was the first trophy she had added to her cupboard in this year.
The girl from Hyderabad defeated Sun Yu of China in the finals on Sunday to lift her first trophy of the season, but she's not satisfied.
Before heading of to Rio for the Olympics, the 26-year-old is looking to add to her arsenal to ensure she brings back a medal from Brazil. And the shuttler believes that she needs to be aggressive as India Test skipper Virat Kohli to improve her win ratio.
