Wang Yihan too good for Saina

5 August 2012

Saina Nehwal's dream of an Olympic gold was shattered when she lost to a superior Wang Yihan of China in the women's singles semifinals. Saina, the first Indian shuttler to play in an Olympic semifinal, could not match the class of the reigning world champion. The 13-21, 13-21 defeat was her sixth straight loss to Wang, who remains the only Chinese the Hyderabadi has never beaten.
