    From injury to titles, 2012 has been Kashyaps year

    Abhijeet Kulkarni
    December 24, 2012
    http://www.firstpost.com/blogs/from-...m=cat_politics

    Excerpts:

    ...On Sunday, the 26-year-old became the first Indian mens singles player to win a Grand Prix Gold title when he lifted the Syed Modi trophy after a marathon 72 minute encounter against Thailands Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk.

    The signification of the triumph can be gauged from the fact that this is Indias first major mens singles title since chief national coach Pullela Gopichand brought home the All England crown in 2001. Though the Syed Modi GP gold triumph may not be in the same league in terms of stature, for Kashyap, it was an apt end to the year which began with an injury and ended in his first ever title on the international circuit.

    ...In fact, Kashyap has been used to questions being raised over his ability to become a top badminton player since childhood given that the scrawny kid, who began playing badminton at the age of 11, was perennially sick and struggled to go through an entire week of competition without breaking down.

    His condition was diagnosed to be asthmatic and even today, the 26-year-old has to guard against an asthma attack during tournaments. But Kashyap has overcome that hurdle with proper medication (he has to get a special exemption for it from WADA) and a disciplined lifestyle. Today, team physio Kiran Challagundas assessment that the 25-year-old in one of the fittest players on the international circuit speaks volumes of his work ethics and commitment.

    ...At 26, Kashyap has just started to mature as a player and every Indian badminton fan would hope that he goes on to build on the 2012 success and win many more titles in the future.

    He is a fighter. Despite struggling from some sort of pains(abdomen as well as back), he has proved to create another history in the men's badminton history by winning a GPG title (apart from quarterfinal entry in Olympics). Though he feels happy about this, according to me, he needs to train hard even further. I have watched his matches in the recent tournament. He gifted so many points by doing many unforced errors which he needs to concentrate on.

    Hard working paves the way. Go Kashyap. Do hard work on improving your skills further in order to move into top 10 ranking.
    I hope sindhu will break into top 20 (May be 16 or 17) in the BWF ranking list after reaching her maiden final of a GPG tournament .

    Want to be in top 10 in 2013: Parupalli Kashyap

    " http://www.sportskeeda.com/2012/12/2...palli-kashyap/ "

    EXCERPTS:


    It has been a great year for you. You were the first male Indian player to reach the London Olympics quarterfinalist and now the Syed Modi title. How do you rate your season? It has been my best season as I have never played so consistently. I made a couple of semi-finals and quarterfinals of the Super Series events, beat three-four top 10 players, so it has been good. Next I want myself to be in the top 10 so lets see how quickly I get there. I am also able to beat top 20 players regularly.

    How have you matured as a player this season? I have learnt how to manage my injuries. Champions like Taufik Hidayat, whatever their condition is, will make finals and win tournaments. That’s something which I want to do on a consistent basis. Cause injuries won’t go, the key is to manage them.

    How is bad the abdominal injury that you picked up in Hong Kong in November? I just tried to play smartly in a relaxed manner. I did not try hitting unnecessary shots. But the abdominal injury is bothering me more, especially during the final. I have also sprained my back during the quarterfinal.


    We know kashyap is a great fighter. Lets hope to see him injury free in the coming year. All the very best Kashyap. I wish you a prosperous new year ahead..

    Hopefully sponsors will knock my door, says Parupalli Kashyap


    http://www.sportskeeda.com/2013/01/0...palli-kashyap/


    EXCERPTS:

    Breaking into the top-15 of the world rankings is a significant leap for any shuttler. And for India�s Parupalli Kashyap, it isn�t any different. The Hyderabad lad is experiencing an on-top-of-the-world feeling after scaling a career-high world ranking of 14, following his maiden singles triumph in the recently-concluded Syed Modi International badminton tournament in Lucknow.
    Cracking the top-15 is a realistic target Kashyap had set his sights on at the beginning of 2012. �I started the year with a ranking of 27 and was confident of moving up in the ranking ladder. Honestly speaking, I had set myself a target of reaching the top-15 by the end of 2012, so it�s hugely satisfying to achieve what I�m have been aiming for the year 2012,� Kashyap told Sportskeeda in an exclusive interview.

    Kashyap�s arrival in the top-15 was largely possible due to his first singles crown in the Syed Modi International tournament. By his own admission, the biggest singles win did not get quite hog the newpaper headlines as the day happened to be the one-day international retirement of great Sachin Tendulkar. �Sachin is the God of Indian cricket. He deserves all the media attention. I don�t harbor any hard feelings but just thought many people probably might have forgotten the fact that the country�s top men�s singles player won his maiden international singles title,� Kashyap tossed a googly.

    Indian Badminton has been taken to a new level by the exploits of Saina Nehwal but the Indian men haven�t been far behind performance-wise � as many as five Indians (Ajay Jayaram, Sourabh Varma, RMV Gurusaidutt and B Sai Praneeth besides Kashyap) are in the top-50. �Sania has had a phenomenal 2012 and I�m very happy for her � she deserves all the sponsorship deals for all the sweat and toil she is putting in. At the same time, sponsors must come forward to support the men�s shuttlers as well. I still don�t have a sponsor despite being the number one men�s singles player in the country over a long while now. I really hope cracking the top-15 would encourage the sponsors to knock my door,� he puts things in perspective.

    The 25-year-old is pragmatic enough to realize that shuttlers got to make the most since a shuttler�s career is not very long. �We don�t make money like our cricketers. A shuttler�s career is short and we have to make the moolah during our playing days,� the Indian Oil Corporation A-Grade Officer said. Kashyap became the first Indian men�s singles player to reach the Olympic quarterfinals last July-August. But he is a tad disappointed that his exploits at London failed to bring any cash awards. �The Central government had announced that a cash award of Rs 10 lakh would be given to all those athletes, who have entered the quarterfinals of their respective events, but till now I haven�t received any such award. Even the Andhra Pradesh Government hasn�t given me any cash award after my quarterfinal finish at the London Olympics,� he sang a sour tone. There is a general feeling in Badminton circles that Kashyap has the ammunition to upset the best in the business, but has this knack of losing matches from winning positions. �I agree that I was losing matches from winning positions. It�s not that I become complacent after gaining a big lead. I think I�ve improved on this aspect. I�ve substantially tightened my game,� he observed.

    Kashyap reaches career-best ranking of 11

    http://www.sportskeeda.com/2013/01/1...ranking-of-11/

    EXCERPTS:

    London Olympics quarterfinalist Parupalli Kashyap achieved a new high as he was ranked World No.11 in the latest Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings released Thursday.
    Kashyap, who was ranked a career-best 14th after winning the Syed Modi International India Grand Prix Gold in Lucknow in December, jumped another three places in the mens singles rankings.

    My aim was to be in the top-10 by 2013 and I am glad that I have got close to that right at the beginning of the year, Kashyap told IANS from Seoul where he lost his second round match in Korea Open Thursday.

    Mumbai shuttler Ajay Jayaram also gained a place to be ranked 30th.
    In the womens singles rankings, P.V. Sindhu gained two places to be ranked a career-best 17th. Sindhu, who also lost in the second round in Korea, had reached the final of the Syed Modi tournament.

    Indias ace Saina Nehwal retained her third place in the world rankings. The Hyderabadi reached the quarterfinals in Korea Thursday.

    All the very best Kashyap. I wish to see you in top 5 soon.

    Agreed, the key word is consistent ... this is the main problem I see with all the Indian players including Saina. The undisputed benchmark for consistency is LCW. Wonder how he does it ... incredible.

    Saina sails to quarters, injured Kashyap crashes out

    http://www.thehindu.com/sport/saina-...cle4316306.ece

    EXCERPTS:

    “I pulled up my quadriceps muscle in the right leg. It happened yesterday in the first round. But I still played today and lost to Jan Jorgensen. I couldn’t play my best because of the injury,” Kashyap said.

    “I will have a scan and see what the actual problem is. Hope I can recover quickly and get back to regular training and be fit for the All England,” he added.

    Just now, he entered into top 10. Even before the news would have reached him, he got injured .... Second highest men's singles player from india got injured ... I pray god for his quick recovery and come back soon to play in All England..

    He is as candid as a player can get. Well done boy! It doesnt matter even if you dont become no.1 or win WC.

    http://www.firstpost.com/sports/inte...en-608802.html

    Its not enough to be in the top 10. You have to win tournaments. And when I talk tournaments, I mean the Super Series the big ones. Even if I am number 1 and I dont win those it doesnt matter,

    At the Swiss Open this week, #5 seed Kashyap eased into round 2 for a meeting with the tall German, Dieter Domke. If Kashyap plays to his seeding, he should advance past Dieter and possibly CW Feng of Malaysia to the quarter-finals, where he may possibly meet #4 seed Jan O Jorgensen.

    Actually, depending on how Kashyap paces himself and which players fall or prevail in other matches, he has a decent chance of making it all the way to the finals.

    Kashyap aiming for swift return

    http://www.thehindu.com/sport/other-...cle5156926.ece

    EXCERPTS:

    On Sunday, the country’s top-ranked shuttler returned to the Siri Fort Indoor hall, where, during the Indian Badminton League last month, he twisted his right-ankle.

    Kashyap, who endured the pain throughout a forgettable campaign, resumed training only three days ago to be able to serve Indian Oil in the on-going Petroleum inter-unit badminton meet commencing on Monday.

    “I am far from being 100 per cent fit, but I could not afford to miss this event. After all, our employers look after us all year and want us to represent them just for two weeks in a year (once each for the Petroleum meet and Public Sector championship).


    “Since the rehabilitation process is still on, I not only have to strengthen the affected muscles, but also play cautiously. I will play the team championship and see if I can skip the individual event. I guess a week more with my support team in Hyderabad, and I should be match-fit.”
