London Olympic bronze medallist Saina Nehwal on Saturday scripted history by reaching the final of the prestigious All England Badminton Championship with a straight-game victory over Sun Yu of China in the women's singles competition. The World No. 3 Indian, who reached the semifinals of the event in 2010 and 2013, defeated the unseeded Sun 21-13, 21-13 in a match that lasted for 50 minutes at the Barclaycard Arena. Saina is now just one step away from joining Indian legends Prakash Padukone (1980) and P Gopichand (2001) who have bagged the prestigious title in the past.

The 24-year-old will face the winner of the other semifinal between seventh seeded Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei and Spain's Carolina Marin on Sunday. After disposing her nemesis Yihan Wang of China, third seed Saina was faced with the task of taming the towering Sun, ranked World No. 18, who had seen off the likes of Nichaon Jindapon, Li Xuerui and Ratnachok Intanon over the last three days.
