Hyderabad: Her narrow losses in various tournaments notwithstanding, ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal says she had a reasonably good year considering the injuries that plagued her.
"Last year (2010) was fantastic, I am very happy with those victories. This year, it was kind of tough for me because, I came back from ankle injury. But still, I managed to play four finals and I reached the semi-finals of Japan Open," Saina said.
"I think the performance this year has been fantastic. It is just that I could not win those tournaments and I lost in the finals. So, people think that this is disappointing. But I played really well," she said.
