That's about it. If the Chinese had trained harder or didn't give everything in the first set, she could have won. Tough.

Wang seem to be in pain between sets. Saina has won bronze. It isn't Saina's fault if the opponent is not fit enough.

Re: The 2012 Olympics Thread

What a shower of a decision. While the bout may have been too close to call, the difference between Sangwan's and this appeal is striking. Apart from money and competing well we need some administrator like Dalmia who can do brinkmanship for our team.

From a completely layperson point of view, Poonia's technique seems the most fluid. There is a Cuban and Chinese who are throwing in the same range as Poonia.

Hammertime! Saina wins 21-4, 21-14. Only in the second set she had to shift gears.
Saina has the domineering presence of a champion, it was like a cat toying with a mouse.

Saina Nehwal wins first set 21-4. That took roughly 10 minutes.

11-8 to Nehwal in second set. The score doesn't reflect the dominance.
