Praising India's top shuttler Saina Nehwal for her hard work, national badminton coach Pullela Gopichand Wednesday said she has a good chance of winning top honours at the upcoming World Championships in China.


"She is a role model for the young players. I think going into the tournament Saina will be one of the favourites to win a medal and she has a good chance of doing it and lets see how she progresses...," said Gopichand.

"She has been working hard...the last three four weeks have been good for her and I do expect her to do well," said the former All England Open Badminton Championship winner.

Saina has been seeded No.3 in women's singles for the upcoming World Championships to be held between Aug 5-11 in Guangzhou, China.
