    Srikanth at his attacking best will match everyone of the current crop except Chen Long. Perhaps in 2 years time he will build up sufficient physical strength to beat CL too. Amen.

    Srikanth at his best is unbeatable, i feel physically he was at his best ever at Rio Olympics. Some mental fine tuning and experience will turn him into a very fine player in the games history. Personally i feel he has the potential to win at least 15 super-series titles over his career.

    Srikanth is one of the players with exceptional skill that can go very far.

    Time to give up on Srikanth. Simply too inconsistent. And is super fragile mentally. His loss today to unheralded chinese qualifier in All England was just too amazing.
    India will have to wait for someone else to bear the flag in Mens singles competition.

    Congrats to Srikanth!
    He just won one of the two biggest prize money tournaments this year.

    But a lot of credit should go to H S Prannoy.
    He beat the top guns.

    Sai is also doing well winning 2 consecutive tournaments in Singapore and Thailand.

    Good for Indian badminton in MS.

    Srikanth is now ranked #2 in Destination Dubai and #11 in general.

    He has said that Indonesia is the "best badminton nation" and heaped praises on his Indonesian coach.
    I hope the Chinese fans aren't upset.:p

    Well he proved you wrong at the INA Open and got a fabulous reward for winning, from both the tournament and IBA!

    ^^Lets hope he keeps proving me wrong.
    BTW, we will know tomorrow. Srikanth`s problems started after his loss to Chen long in Dubai 3 years ago. He is facing CL again. The way he plays tom will indicate if he has conquered his ghosts.

    Yup. Very impressive. This looks very good.
    It would ve been nice if Chen Long had shown more fight. But tactically it was brilliant display by Srikanth.

    Congratulations to the BEST IN THE WORLD....KAYYYDDDDDDDDambi Srikanth.

    Unfortunately, due to important commitments I decided to skip the ultimate day of Crown Australian Open GPG. But a quick, almost thievishly glance at Tournament Software produced a LOL in my stomach. Ofcourse I was happy with the result.

    Andhra Pradesh govt. Felicitated Srikanth and his family.
    He was awarded 50 lakhs and 1000 square feet land and Group 1 post in AP govt, which he can accept any time .
