“Golden Boy ” Kidambi Srikanth set to be No. 1 in Dubai Super series standing and no 4 in Bwf Ranking

“Golden Boy ” Kidambi Srikanth  set to be No. 1 in Dubai Super series standing and no 4 in Bwf Ranking

Kidambi Srikanth bagged his third Superseries title of the year on Sunday with a complete demolition of Lee Hyun Il in the Denmark Superseries Premier final in Odense.

The Danish Open crown, which also made the 24-year-old from Guntur the fourth most successful men’s singles shuttler in Superseries history with five titles, is enough to prove that Srikanth is currently among the top stars of world badminton.

But more than reaching his fourth Superseries final in the calendar year he will Clinic the Top spot in the Race to Dubai rankings, one thing that stood out for Srikanth in Odense was the way he managed to tame world champion Viktor Axelsen in the quarter-finals after losing the opening game.

Kidambi Srikanth has jumped two spots to the fourth spot in the BWF men’s singles rankings, after defeating Lee Hyun-il in the final of the Denmark Open by a 21-10, 21-5 margin.

Srikanth, who will move up to fourth in the BWF rankings, was ranked eighth ahead of the tournament.

This will put him behind Viktor Axelsen, Son Wan Ho and Lin Dan in the rankings. However, if he loses, he will only get as far a 6th, behind the above three, and Shi Yuqi and Chou Tien Chen.

He is also set to be No. 1 in Dubai Superseries standing, no.1 in prize money earned by all men or women in all categories in 2017, and No. 4 in BWF world men’s ranking. Srikanth was the only Indian left in the tournament, after Saina Nehwal and HS Prannoy crashed out in the semi finals.

After this win, Srikanth will now turn his attention towards the French Open Superseries, where he could create history, by becoming the first Indian to win four Superseries titles in a year.

The 24-year-old has had a brilliant year, putting Indian men’s singles badminton back on the international map once again. He has had to come back from a difficult injury. However, now that he is back in top form, we hope that he can go on to achieve greater glories for his country in the future.
