New Delhi: Olympic bronze medal winning shuttler Saina Nehwal has been handed a relatively easy draw in the women's singles section at the upcoming World Badminton Championships, scheduled to be held in Guangzhou from August 5 to 11.
World No. 3 Saina has got a bye in the first round and is not likely to be troubled before the quarterfinals where she could face World No. 10 Minatsu Mitani of Japan.
In all likely Saina would cross the quarterfinal hurdle and her first real test could be against World No.1 Chinese Li Xuerui in the semifinals.
