After All England, do you feel you can go even higher?
Every player dreams of it. Now I know that I can beat the best in the world. It is important for me to fulfil my potential. I would definitely like to see that I’ve won many more titles at the end of my career.

Was your early loss at the Sydney Olympics your biggest regret?
Certainly. Had I got a medal at Sydney, I would have been more relaxed now. I had really slogged... I couldn’t have trained even 1 per cent more. I was very disappointed. I was in my best form a week before the Olympics. Even a month after the games, I was in peak form.
