Ace Indian Badminton player Saina Nehwal clinched her 16th career title as she defeated Thailand's Ratchanok Inathon in the Thailand Open Grand Prix Gold title in Bangkok on 10 June 2012. The Thailand Open Grand Prix is Saina’s second title in the year 2012. Earlier, in April 2012 she had won the Swiss Open Title.

The World No. 5 Saina Nehwal is India’s one of the biggest hopes for the London Olympics 2012. Saina had reached the women singles quarterfinals round at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, which made her the first Indian woman shuttler to reach the singles quarterfinals at the Olympics. She is also the first Indian to win the World Junior Badminton Championships. Saina Nehwal created a history on 21 June 2009, when she became the first Indian to win a Super Series tournament, by clinching the Indonesia Open Title in Jakarta.
