New Delhi: Olympic bronze medallist Saina Nehwal says the draw at the upcoming Yonex Sunrise India Open badminton tournament is tough and that it would not be a cakewalk for the world number two.

Stating that her first-round opponent, Belaetrix Manuputi of Indonesia, has been showing impressive form, Saina said: "The draw is quite tough, it is not easy. In the first round itself I am playing with an Indonesian player who is doing really well. But I am preparing hard to win the Yonex Sunrise India Open Superseries."

The world No. 2, however, said that she is determined to give her 100 per cent.
