Lucknow, Jan 23:
Saina Nehwal’s decision to give it a miss has taken away some sheen but Olympic silver-medallist P V Sindhu will ensure that Syed Modi International is not short of star power when the Grand Prix Gold event gets underway with the qualifiers here tomorrow.
Fresh from her comeback win at Malaysia Masters Grand Prix Gold yesterday, Saina, a three-time winner here, has opted out.
“No I am not playing as it was a tough three weeks for me after the PBL and Malaysia open win and I am still not 100 per cent with my knee strength. I need some more time to be fully fit physically,” Saina said. (PTI)
