Additional Info from TheGoodnessApple :  Saina Nehwal once told in a press release in 2009 that she would become world No 1 in 2010 and looks like she’s on her way to the No: 1 slot.

Way back then she was in Rank 1o and now she has jumped to No 3 and is in right spirits for Numero Uno!

Three Cheers & Good luck to you Saina!!!
