About Saina Nehwal

One of the world’s fiercest badminton athletes, few have been able to dominate social media and the court as much as Saina Nehwal. The 28-year old Indian breakout star has won Olympic bronze medals and won the 2018 Commonwealth Games, a competition between the nations that were formerly part of the British Empire. Considered one of India’s best sportspeople of all time, Sania has used her success on the court to generate an impressive social media following, with 1M+ Instagram and 8M+ Twitter followers, where she keeps her international fanbase up to date with scores and off-court, daily life updates.
