Hyderabad, Aug 5 (ANI): Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal has resumed practice for the World Badminton Championships.

The championships will be held in Hyderabad this month.

Earlier, Nehwal had suffered a setback to her preparations when she was diagnosed with chickenpox.

Nehwal, however, recovered soon and had her first practice session under the watchful eyes of her coach Pullela Gopichand, a former winner of the All England Open Badminton Championship.

In a candid chat with media persons on Tuesday, Nehwal said she was feeling better and would regain her touch ahead of the World Badminton Championships.

"I don't have fever now, there is no tiredness also. I started practicing and enjoyed it. I think there is no problem of fitness. I would regain my rhythm in a day or two," she said.

"There are still eight days left for the tournament, I will have to gain more fitness. My fitness has been upset. I will only get to know when I play in the tournament," she added.

Sania won her first super series event in Indonesia on June 21. She became the first Indian woman to reach the Olympic singles quarter-finals in Beijing last year. (ANI)
