    Good idea. Owner might rather have a shirt they can wear and wash.... and a perhaps a picture, poster or ticket that has a signature on it.

    Reactions from Parupalli Kashyap after winning the India GPG -
    He believes that his best form ever has been since the CWG Glasgow. It seems he has also injured himself in the finals. Hope he recovers soon.

    "It is a great way to start the season. Actually, in November itself, I thought about trying and doing well in this two events -- Malaysia GPG and Syed Modi. I lost in the pre-quarters in Malaysia but luckily I could win a title in this event," Kashyap said.

    "I am very happy to win this. I thought I needed to do well. Srikanth has been doing so well in the last year and suddenly he rose to World No. 4 and everyone was counting me off.

    "When I entered this event, people said I was not in form and told me that I didn't play well last year. But I told everyone that after the Commonwealth Games I actually played the best in my career.

    "I reached the quarters, semis and quarters in the three tournaments that I played in. It's just that Srikanth had an extraordinary year and so everyone thought I was not playing well. So it was an important victory," he added.

    While the title gave him a lot of happiness, Kashyap ended up suffering a muscle tear in his abdomen.

    "My abs was injured during the match. There is a mild tear in my abdomen, I don't know how bad it is right now. there are no good physios in Hyderabad right now, so I might get it checked in Mumbai. I'm little worried about it now," he said.

    "Luckily I have time in my hand, because the next important tournament is All England, so I will have time to recover and play in All England."
    Also wanted to hear Sindhu's reaction after her loss, but couldn't find. Congrats to her as well for winning the Padma award.

    Congrats to Kashyap for reaching the semis of SOSS. If I am not mistaken, he will be in top 10 if he wins tomorrow. Good luck to him.

    that would be phenomenal. Although I think he needs to win the SOSS, and hope for Momota to lose tomorrow to be back in the top 10. After all Momota will be gaining 5040 points too.

    Kashyap after his win over chen long:

    “I’m extremely happy, because I hung in there and won a game by sticking it out. But I know the job’s not done. Beating a single player in a tournament is not enough. I’ve got odd wins here and there in my career. If you can win big tournaments then you are something. It’s good to beat Chen Long but I desperately want to win many titles,”

    “He’s a defensive player who just doesnt make any mistakes. He has no errors. So you need to play great strokes and grab every point from him. There’re no easy points. Last time I lost badly so that was playing on my mind. But I put pressure on him, and hit him hard,”

    Chen long acknowledged the effort ," There was a lot of of pressure. I didn’t play badly but Kashyap didn’t give up. I have beaten him easily in the past but he was mentally stronger today. That was the difference. I can’t complain about the noise because all the players had to deal with the same conditions – not just me."

    Coach Gopichand was elated his ward’s game was finally coming together after having seen him deal with the ups and downs of his career. “Kashyap’s always been strong, and has the attacking and defensive game. But now he’s starting to mature, understand his body better and getting consistent. Nothing’s come easy for him. But now he’s making his streaks of strength count,” he said.

    Note: Even Chen Long acknowledged the defeat and it came not because of noise. But it is unfortunate, despite having lead, he lost in the semifinals. Don't worry Kashyap, try next time.

    @Nine Tailed Fox Yes, quarters looks possible, his form looks good, just needs to keep a leash on his inner demons. He has not gone past quarters at WC. Every game he wins is an achievement. Whenever he goes on court he fights 2 battles, one with the opponent the other within himself. The positive from his loss is that he wasn't crushed the way Jan was in game 3. The draw will be the key for all the players.

    EXCERPTS:

    India’s ace shuttler Parupalli Kashyap has taken all the ‘excitement’ of beating world number one Chen Long at the recent Indonesian Open in his stride as he focuses on the forthcoming 2015 World Championships to be held in Jakarta in August.
    The 28-year-old shuttler became the first Indian singles player in 14 years to beat a reigning world number one – Pullela Gopichand last attained it beating Peter Gade to win the 2011 All England Championship. In fact, Kashyap is the first Indian singles player to beat a reigning world number one under the 21 points system. Kashyap, ranked 12th in the world, spoke about his big win over Chen Long among others in an exclusive interview.

    Excerpts:
    Q: How was it beating world number one Chen Long of China in the quarter-finals of the Indonesian Open?

    A:It is a ‘big feeling’ beating a player of Chen Long’s stature but I had to shut off all the ‘excitement’ as I had to play the semifinals against Japan’s Kento Momota next day. Looking back, it would have been a ‘grand feeling’ if I had beaten Chen Long in the final and won the tournament. At a personal level, off course this win will be a big boost to my confidence. I played really well to beat him.

    Q: You became the first Indian men’s singles player in 14 years beating a reigning world number one – your coach Pullela Gopichand was the last Indian to attain this feat when he pipped Denmark’s Peter Gade to win the 2001 All England Championship?

    A: Stats are for the record books, but it’s good to know that I have done something after so many years. I was not aware about this and only came to know about it after I got the better of Chen Long.

    Q: What really went wrong in your semifinal against Kento Momota?

    A: I think I should have won that match. I won’t say I was suffering from any lapses in concentration, but I was not relaxed playing the closing points. I got tensed and lost five points on the trot. Of course, Kento is a solid player and the fact that he went on to win the Indonesian Open is an indication of that.

    Q: The World Championships is your next stop – how do you assess your chances?

    A:Well, I believe I’m playing the best badminton of my career and if I keep training the way I do and stay injury-free there is no reason why I can’t fare well in the World Championships. It is a big-ticket event and doing well will stand me in good stead for the future.

    Q: There is a feeling that you have the ammunition to beat top guys – something you have consistently achieved over the years – but you have upset the big guns in a tourney only to bow out in next round or thereafter. Your thoughts.

    A:I’m not sure why it is happening – I’m working on my consistency – I feel I need to have one outstanding week in a big tournament, something which will do a world of good to my confidence.

    Q: How important it is for a shuttler to win in all conditions – surfaces where the shuttle comes fast and surfaces where the shuttle comes slow?

    A: I would like to beat top players and win tournaments in all conditions. The conditions in the Indonesian Open suited my attacking style while Chen Long is more of a defensive player, who likes to wear down his opponent. I would love to beat top players like Chen Long on surfaces where the shuttle comes slowly off the air and on such surfaces somebody like Chen Long can be lethal.

    Q: How do you think one should avoid injuries?

    A: It is imperative to strike a proper balance in your training as overtraining can only be detrimental to a player. I believe balancing one’s training can hugely help to minimise injuries if not fully avoid them.

    Q: Finally, how do you look at India’s challenge in the 2015 World Championships?

    Indian shuttlers should fare well in the 2015 World Championships – the likes of Saina, Sindhu, Srikanth besides me will strive to do well for the country.

    Chen Long is current world no. 1. Hence , beating world no.1 will have a certain impact on media front.

    Kashyap is a solid player. Hope he does well in future tournaments.

    One would hope beating W No 1 would lead to a better self confidence and inner belief during crucial moments but it's the same old story for this man.I was so let down after his defeat to momota which leaves me with no hope for future.i know he has a knack of defeating anyone except few but he can't just win that fckin tournament no matter what.He cant be considered....WELLLLLLLLLLL!LET'S MAKE PEACE AND WISH HIM ALL THE BEST.

    Moving to HYD is a brilliant idea infact.... Even the best academy in DEL can't compete with the kind of competition he will face in even C-Grade Hyd academies..... If he beats 2-3 PG wards in a few local tourneys there, he won't need to approach PGBA.
