Isn’t that a tennis 🎾 serve ? 🤔 Seems like a SANIA fan made the SAINA poster 🙄— Aayush Khanna (@aayushkhanna) March 2, 2021
Dear Team, be it a Serve nor a Smash the left hand doesn’t come in such a position in badminton. Probably the creator / designer watched Tennis Footage to be inspired for this First look. Hopefully this is just a one off mistake.— Prabhu (@Cricprabhu) March 2, 2021
