We played tournaments together, trained together and slowly, started paying more attention to each other's matches.” And further added, “In the competitive world that we live in, it is difficult to get close to someone. But somehow we both found it very easy to talk to each other, talk about our matches.

In fact, the date of their wedding has also been finalised! December 16, 2018 is the auspicious chosen date for the wedding. Speaking about the same, Saina stated, “I will get busy with the Premier Badminton League from December 20 and then qualifiers for the Tokyo Games will begin. So this was the only date that we had to get married.”
Publicly acknowledging their relationship for the first time, Saina stated, “We didn't think about marriage before. The career that we pursue is very demanding. It is very important to win tournaments and we didn't want to shift our focus by getting married earlier.” She added, “A player needs treatment and attention just like a baby. At home, I get everything without asking, but this will change once I get married. I will be equally responsible of doing things on my own.”
What are her current thoughts, now that the wedding is almost round the corner? “I didn't want to rush things before the CWG and Asian Games. But now, we think we are ready for it and can manage things on our own.” Also, do you guys something? Saina did not even had to tell her parents about her marriage because it was so obvious for them! Speaking about the same in the interview, Saina revealed, “Bolne ki zaroorat nahi padi (I didn't have to tell them). We used to be together most of the time and my parents also travelled with me, so they understood who I was close to and comfortable with even after my losses.” (Checkout!
