Shenzhen (China), Dec 14:  Saina Nehwal looks all set to cap a remarkable year on a high as the ace Indian shuttler reached the semifinals of the BWF World Super Series Finals with a fine straight-game win over Juliane Schenk of Germany, here today.



Saina had her back against the wall after two back-to-back losses in Group ‘B' but the London Olympics bronze-medallist made a remarkable comeback and put herself back into the reckoning for her fifth Super Series title this year with a 21-7 21-18 victory over Schenk in 37 minutes.

The World No. 3 Saina made a resounding start reeling off six straight points with a mix of her trademark crosscourt smashes and drop shots to which Schenk had no response.
