New Delhi: The stupendous title win in the Swiss Open on Sunday will boost Saina Nehwal's confidence and set the ball rolling for the London Olympics in July, India coach Pullela Gopichand said.
The World number five Saina on Sunday defeated China's Shixian Wang, ranked three, 21-19 21-16 in a 48-minute thrilling contest to defend her women's singles title at Basel, Switzerland.
"It is a very important victory for Saina. She has been playing well even last year but some close matches here and there, which could have gone either way, cost her a lot. But today she beat Shixian quite comfortably in the end," Gopichand told PTI from Switzerland.
