Clearly, Toni Martin, who is the mother of Rio Olympic champion Carolina Marin, is a fan of both the Indian shuttlers.
She was spotted waiting in the area designated for fans until the players came out.
Toni managed to get a picture with not just the silver and bronze medallists of the World Badminton Championships but also with Saina’s father Harvir Nehwal and Sindhu’s mother P Vijayalakshmi.

Interestingly, Spanish champion Carolina Marin has had many on-court trysts with both women.
While she had claimed the Rio Olympic title by beating Sindhu in the finals last year, the latter had managed to steal the glory by defeating Marin in the India Open Super Series title in April. Similarly, Saina was beaten by Marin in the 2015 World Championship final that was held in Indonesia.
This year’s Championships saw both Sindhu and Saina finishing with silver and bronze medals. However, Marin had crashed out of the quarterfinals to eventual gold medalist Nozomi Okuhara.
