India's Saina Nehwal Stuns World Number One Marin In Dubai BWF Superseries

Dubai; Dec.11: Indian shuttle star Saina Nehwal kept alive her Dubai World Superseries Finals chances with one of the most extraordinary wins of her career Thursday - a 23-21, 9-21, 21-12 triumph against world number one Carolina Marin at the Hamdan Sports Complex.

Facing early exit after her capitulation against Japan's Nozomi Okuhara on Wednesday, Saina rose like a phoenix to notch up a memorable win over the World No.1 in a women's singles match that lasted an hour and 15 minutes. 

"I never thought I would win, I had no plan," Nehwal, the words pouring out between huge smiles. "And I never expected to play so well against Carolina. I didn't do any kind of running before coming here, and thought I would be going home and playing with my dog this weekend."

Saina will face defending champion Tai Tzu Ying in her final league match today.
