Happy birthday Saina Nehwal: Yuvraj Singh wishes for badminton ace

Indian badminton superstar Saina Nehwal turned 31 on Wednesday. Saina will compete in the All-England Open Championship, which is to begin on Wednesday. She is drawn against Denmark’s seventh seed Mia Blichfeldt in the first round. Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh took to Twitter to wish him a successful year, with the Tokyo Olympics scheduled to take place in 2021. “Happy Birthday @Nainaina! Hope you have a successful year ahead and wish you the best of the country”, tweeted Yuvraj.

Even former India fast bowler Irfan Pathan had to be taken to social media platforms to fulfill his wishes. “Happy champion @NSaina has a great heart”, tweeted Irrfan.

“Thank you very much,” Saina said.

Bollywood actor Ritesh Deshmukh wished him good health and happiness on his birthday. He wrote, “Happy Birthday @NSaina – have a wonderful – May the year be full of happiness, love and great health.”

Here are Saina’s wishes on her Twitter post:

Saina is India’s first badminton player to win a medal at the Olympics, when she won a bronze medal in London 2012. She is also the first player from her country to reach the finals of the World Championship, where she won silver in 2015.

The three-time Olympian is not in the best form at the moment and may also miss qualifying for the upcoming Tokyo Games. He is out of the top 16 in the rankings, and has won only one of the four tournaments he has played in this year.
