Q: A Super Series title after 20 months, are you relieved?
A: Very relieved, it was a tough period for me, there were a lot of expectations from me, and a lot of pressure from different quarters because I haven't won a Super Series in a long time. It happens when a player is out of form. There were certain things that were not in my control, like the knee injury and the toe fracture, it happened at the wrong time, but I was confident that the titles would come and the last two months, I trained very hard for this.
