New Delhi: India's top badminton player Saina Nehwal cracked into the top-five of world rankings with her semi-final finish at the All England Championships.

Saina jumped two places to be at the world no.5, surpassing her previous best of No.6 that she achieved in 2009. Saina surprised everyone this month by becoming the first Indian woman to qualify for the All England semi-finals where she lost to Tine Rasmussen of Denmark.
