Over the past few years, Sharma has done everything to get Nehwal's attention on Twitter, including retweeting her...

Pyaar <3 RT @NSaina Yay! The new yonex shuttle box :)

Encouraging her when she was down...

@NSaina You may not be number one anymore but.. *puts on aviators* are my number one.


Unfortunately, Sharma got no attention from Nehwal other than the occasional stray favourite sometimes.

And (•_•). ( •_•)>⌐□-□. (⌐□_□) BOOM 😎


"This was the hard part because I was in the U.S. and actually had no clue about the contest at all. But thankfully I have good friends who told me about it. I participated while battling sleep in a different timezone."

And that, kids, is the story of how Shivam Sharma met Saina Nehwal in Dubai on December 9 and had his wish come true.

Sometimes you do get what you wish for. Thank you @NSaina #BreakTheInternet #SainaSquadSelfie

"I was speechless. You can see that from the video I posted. She didn't know me from Twitter (thankfully) and it helped that she didn't think I was a stalker or something."

This is the moment. Me giddily giving flowers to @NSaina

"I've met her twice now and she does know who I am, probably (or that's what I'd like to believe)."
