Saina eyes fifth title of the year at French Open
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Paris, Oct 23: Fresh from her maiden Denmark Open title triumph, India ace Saina Nehwal will now look to clinch her fifth title of the year when she starts her campaign in the women's singles at the French Open Super Series on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old Indian capped her return to court after a two-month break following her bronze medal-winning feat at London Olympics, with a win at Odense last week and now her eyes are trained on the French title.
The world number four has been seeded number one in the event as none of the top three Chinese are participating in the tournament and Saina will surely look to grab the opportunity.
She starts her campaign against Li Han of China in the opening round of the main draw and is likely to meet seventh seed Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand in the quarterfinals.
