    Default P. Kashyap - his journey

    I confess I got this from off a blog site, and would like to submit the link. You will also find some more interesting information there about Indian badminton players.

    http://mybadmintonbook.blogspot.com/...i-kashyap.html

    P.Kashyap made an entry into the badminton world at the age of 11, when he first enrolled in a training camp being conducted by S.Mohd.Arif in Hyderabad.

    Kashyap's father had a transferrable job, and hence later after he shifted with his family to Bangalore, Kashyap joined the Prakash Padukone badminton academy there. The Kashyap family stayed at Bangalore from 2000 to 2003.

    While in Bangalore, Kashyap developed breathing troubles, and was often sick when at tournaments. The gravity of the situation was realized only when the family shifted back to Hyderabad again, and a series of tests confirmed asthmatic conditions, that threatened to put to an end his career in badminton. It was a tough time for Kashyap.

    However after being diagnosed for Asthma, and with proper medication started, Kashyap started improving, and began to eat well & got back his health. Meanwhile Kashyap's badminton skills also kept on improving under the guidance of Pullela Gopichand.

    True, a couple of things changed forever. Breathalyzers (inhalers) got added to his badminton kit to handle emergencies, and he needs to take a TUE certificate (Therapuetic Use Exemption) certificate from WADA every year, by undergoing tests & producing medical certificates, which is a tedious process.

    But the good part is he can play badminton, and not only can he play, he can also compete against the best badminton players in the world at the highest levels.

    He's exciting to watch, but that's about it. He needs to work on his footwork, which can be all over the place, witness yesterday's match against Bonsana. He's got potential, but needs to vary his gameplay a bit. Smash, smash, smash ain't going to work against players like Gade or TH, or God forbid LCW or Lin Dan. They're just going to run circles around him. I don't mind all that screaming but once you start to scream towards your opponent it starts to become quite unprofessional.

    Kashyap is playing the China Masters this week, and his first-round opponent in a few hours, will be Rajiv Ouseph of England. I feel Kashyap is well placed to win this match-up. Rajiv's tepid performances have seen him slip down the rankings to #33, whereas Kashyap's persistence has him presently at #23.

    ...and Kashyap duly obliges, putting an end to Rajiv's participation in this tournament, 19-21 21-16 21-11
    He dominated at the net, and in the end that would have made the difference.

    Next up, Kashyap is up against a legend of the game: Peter Gade, who was given a good workout by Chen Yuekun of China, before prevailing 17-21 21-12 21-7

    Kashyap used up all 3 games to overcome Viktor Axelsen of Denmark, and managed to advance into the next round at the Japan Open.

    He will be up against a rejuvenated and fit Chen Jin of China. Kaphyap will need to be completed recovered and on top of his game to stand a chance tomorrow. It would also depend on CJ's physical condition. I am looking forward to an almighty scrap!

    It was certainly a scrap, if not almighty!
    Kashyap finally bowed out in 3 games to the more powerful and experienced Chen Jin, with the scoreline reading 21-15 6-21 21-18 in CJ's favour.
    Kashyap is making a mighty effort to get into the seedings for the OG2012.

    No to forget, he's got the worst luck of them all. He always encounters top players in either first or second round itself... Especially, LCW. I think it will be his second time (Korea SS 2012) meeting LCW in first round and also met Lind Dan in HK open in first round, met PG couple of times in 2nd rounds etc... But still that's no excuse. He has to learn to beat these tough opponents. He is too erratic and arrogant in his play rather being tactful... As someone on this thread mentioned it right... just smashes will not win matches for him. He has to develop certain tactics when playing these great players... I saw his match against Lin Dan and it was really awesome to watch. He took a game off from Lin Dan who recently won the WC and was in great touch. That goes to show KP's capability. He just needs play clever.

    India Open: Kashyap keeps Olympic dream alive

    PTI, New Delhi, April 26, 2012
    http://www.thehindu.com/sport/article3357105.ece

    Locked in a battle for qualification to the London Olympics, compatriots P Kashyap and Ajay Jayaram witnessed contrasting results with the former scripting a resounding win and the latter suffering a close defeat in the India Open Super Series Badminton here on Thursday.

    Lagging in the reckoning for London Games by over 1000 points, Kashyap dug deep into his reserves and produced a scintillating performance to notch up a comefrombehind 1521 2114 2220 over Thailands Boonsak Ponsana.
    He will now have to win his quarterfinal battle with Chen Jin to qualify for the Olympics.

    While Kashyap fought on court no. 2, his friend Jayaram was locked in a battle with world number one Lee Chong Wei of Malaysian on the adjacent court, and even though the Indian tried hard, he couldnt avoid a 2116 1521 215 defeat to crash out of the tournament.

    World number 30 Kashyap lagged behind 27 in the first game and even though the Indian battled hard and narrowed the gap to 1415, the Thai player raced away with the game.

    However, Kashyap didnt lose heart and kept pushing hard at his opponent, whom he had beaten twice in the past. His perseverance reaped dividends as he caught up with the Thai at 55 and then broke off at 99 to roar back into the match.

    Locked at 11, the decider turned into a tooth and nail battle as both the shuttlers went neck and neck from 77 to 1818, before Boonsak registered two quick points to earn the match point at 2018.

    But a lapse of concentration from Boonsak helped Kashyap to save two match points and also earn a match point at 2120 and once the Thai hit the shuttle out, the crowd burst into a vociferous celebration.

    My confidence was down after first game loss. I wanted to put pressure on him but he was breaking my rhythm by playing too many variations through out the match. Because of his change in tactics, I too had to change my game. But I held my nerves in the end, Kashyap said.

    Indian Open: Kashyap seals London Olympics spot

    Friday, 27 April 2012 23:18
    http://www.indiansportsnews.com/top-...-olympics.html

    Excerpt:

    New Delhi: Call it fate or sheer destiny but Commonwealth Games bronze medallist P Kashyap would go to Olympics after a year-long race with compatriot Ajay Jayaram after he received a walk-over in the quarterfinals of the Yonex-Sunrise India Open 2012-OSIM BWF World Superseries tournament here on Friday.

    The world number 30 had to win his quarterfinal against former world champion Chen Jin to leap-frog Ajay in the race for a berth in the flight to London and given the enormous task at hand it looked a difficult prospect.

    However, the Indian shuttler was in for a surprise when he was informed by the officials that he has received a walkover after Chen conceded the quarterfinal tie citing a wrist injury.

    Its a fantastic feeling (to qualify for the Olympics). Not that I was sure to win against Chen Jin but I had played against him before. Given the past results and the home support I was confident of doing well against him. But this has come as a surprise and my entire focus now will be to do well tomorrow, said Kashyap who will now face Koreas Wan Ho Shon, who upset second seed Peter Gade of Denmark 24-22, 21-18 in the other last eight encounter.

    Indian campaign ends as Kashyap loses in semifinal
    PTI | Apr 28, 2012

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/s...w/12912935.cms

    NEW DELHI: India's P Kashyap's gritty performance before losing to world No. 17 Shon Wan Ho of Korea in a three-game thriller to draw curtains on Indian campaign at the Yonex Sunrise India Open Super Series on Saturday.

    Thirteen ranking points separated the two but Olympic bound Kashyap showed a lot of gumption during his 71-minute battle against the Korean before losing by 14-21, 21-19, 16-21 margin at the Siri fort stadium.

    Kashyap played long rallies and made some brilliant returns but he left enough opening for his rival to capitalise as the Korean lead 11-7 at the break. The Korean exploited the Indian's weakness and extended the lead to 18-11 before sealing it with a roaring smash from the mid-court.

    In the second game, Wan once again opened up a narrow 4-1 lead. Kashyap tried to break Wan Ho's rhythm and caught up with the Korean at 10-10, much to the delight of the vociferous crowd and then surged ahead 18-16 with a couple of cross-court smashes.

    The Korean clawed back at 18-18 but he faltered at the fag end as Kashyap closed the game at 21-19.

    In the decider, Wan Ho committed some unforced errors early on to allow Kashyap to lead 5-2 but he drew parity at 7-7 and with Kashyap faltering at the net, the Korean lead 11-10 at the break.

    After the change of ends, Wan Ho extended the lead to 15-11 before moving on to 18-12, courtesy unforced errors on Kashyap's part.

    Kashyap did play a few splendid shots as well but in the end it was the Korean who had the last laugh.

    Delhi low after London high

    Jonathan Selvaraj : New Delhi, Sun Apr 29 2012
    http://www.indianexpress.com/news/de...n-high/942942/

    Excerpts:

    A few days back when both Ajay Jayaram and Parupalli Kashyap were locked in a contest to decide who would be Indias sole participant in the mens singles event of the Olympics, the latter had made a point about the former who was to play a second round match at the India Open Super Series with Lee Chong Wei. Kashyap had said that if Jayaram beat the World No.1Wei, then he deserved to go to the Olympics.

    It had been a pertinent point raised, for both of Indias Olympic hopeful despite coming close on several occasions the last couple of years had failed to secure wins over higher ranked players.

    True to form Jayaram took a game against Wei but lost the match. And while it was Kashyap who sealed the Olympic spot after a lucky walk over conceded by Chinas Chen Jin, he too faltered against a higher ranked opponent though he was leading 10-8 in the decider.

    Default A very nice article by Dev Sukumar

    This is an article worth reading in it's entirety.

    The dive that changed his destiny

    Dev Sukumar
    May 1, 2012

    http://www.sportskeeda.com/2012/05/0...d-his-destiny/

    Excerpts:

    A ticket to London. A lifetimes memories. Being part of the greatest spectacle on earth. The Olympic village. Playing before millions.

    How could so much hinge on just one point?

    ...Both Ajay and Kashyap, having lost the first game, won the second to take their matches to the decider. Ajay, facing world No.1 Lee Chong Wei, was perhaps unlucky to have his fate decided by the worlds best player, for Chong Wei demolished him in the third, and even as they left the arena, Kashyap was locked in a desperate battle against Ponsana.

    But Ponsana a contemporary of Kashyaps coach Gopichand deceptive and wristy, edged ahead 19-17, just a hairs breath away from three match points.

    ...Many in the press asked him about how lucky hed been, but Kashyap hasnt had it easy. Over the last year, he has battled injury and had to recover from the trauma of a personal tragedy to keep his Olympic hopes alive. Ajay didnt lose his Olympic place Kashyap won it.

    Focus is on improving strength: Kashyap
    V. V. Subrahmanyam
    HYDERABAD, May 5, 2012

    http://www.thehindu.com/sport/other-...cle3384258.ece

    Excerpts:

    Parupalli Kashyap's first brush with the Olympic Games was when he saw one of his childhood heroes, Pullela Gopi Chand (now India's chief national coach) battle it out against Hendrawan in the 2000 Sydney Games.

    Now, 12 years later, the 25-year-old is India's lone challenger in the men's singles badminton event at the London Games.

    I am excited at the prospect of playing in the Olympics which, I often hear many people say, is the greatest experience for any athlete, said Kashyap.

    ...Kashyap, who Gopi says is a bundle of talent and who has to keep things simple and be more consistent, is not thinking too much about his medal chances in the Olympics right now.

    My focus is on improving strength. This was a major lesson from the India Open. I will have to work really hard on this.

    My smashes and dribbles worked well in the India Open. I am keen to improve further in this key department, added Kashyap.

    ...About his asthma Kashyap said, The restrictions are not that big in terms of food intake. I only have to avoid really cold things.

    Sometimes it is not possible to stick to the restrictions. But perhaps because of my passion for the sport, once I enter the court, I feel at ease. And I must thank my parents for their great support over the years, he added.
