Guangzhou: World No.3 Saina Nehwal will be leading the Indian challenge at the World Championships, starting here on Monday at the Tianhe Indoor Stadium, and this will be the Hyderabadi's best chance to grab the only major medal missing from her kitty.

India till date have won only two medals in this event. Prakash Padukone won the men's singles bronze in the 1983 edition at Copenhagen while the next one came 28 years later when Commonwealth Games gold medallists Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa surprised one and all by winning the women's doubles bronze two years ago in London.
