Written by | November 25, 2014 | 0

Upbeat over winning the China Open title and moving up to the fourth spot in the latest BWF rankings, star shuttler Saina Nehwal says she is working on becoming the best in the world.

“I am happy that, from world number nine to I reached world number four with three titles. Now, I am hoping to do well in the Dubai Super Series final next month,” she told PTI here today.

Besides seeking more success on the tour, the Hyderabadi said is focussed on maintaining fitness in the run up to the 2016 Olympics.

“It is very important to stay fit now as the Olympics are coming nearer. It will be more about remaining fit and playing the best against the top three Chinese players in the world. I will try to beat them as many times as possible or try to give them a very tough fight which is very important,” she said.

She said she would work hard for achieving the number one position, but no time-frame can be put to it.

“I will try my best. World Number One is a target obviously everyone wants to achieve. But it is not easy as the other Chinese are also strong. So, I would just keep working hard and you never know anything can happen. (I) reached world number four, so, hopefully, would like to win some more tournaments and would like to give my best. It is not going to be easy, but, I am going to work very hard for that,” she said.
