    Kashyap has struck a golden vein of form recently, and continued his super run by ending HK Vittinghus' participation at the IO SSP in the QF, 21-15, 21-14. Kashyap's h-h with HKV is now 3-1 in his favour!

    Tomorrow at the semi-finals however, is a whole different scenario. He will be up against crowd favourite, and possible front-runner for the title, Simon Santoso. Simon owns a 3-0 h-h over Kashyap. But Kashyap is nothing if not a fighter! May the best man win!

    Kashyap scripts historic win over Chen Long

    Dev Sukumar, June 14, 2012
    http://www.sportskeeda.com/2012/06/1...ver-chen-long/

    Excerpts:

    Jakarta: P Kashyap authored one of the finest victories in Indian badminton history with a shock result over world No.3 Chen Long to enter the quarterfinals of the Indonesia Open Superseries Premier. The 21- 17 21-14 victory was brilliantly executed, with the Indian out-thinking the Chinese at every step, and brought back memories of his coach Gopichands defeat of Chen Hong in the final of the All England in 2001.

    ...Kashyaps 13-11 win-loss record this year appeared almost puny compared to Chens 23-6, and it was a classic David vs Goliath battle. Kashyap summoned up the meager resources at his disposal and made it work; Goliath duly came tumbling down.

    The classic instruction for any Indian playing a Chinese is to make their superior abilities of speed and power work against them: Padukone did it with success, and so did Gopichand. Basically, the tactic would be to avoid playing at high pace; to use flicks and drops and avoid hitting hard; to take the net, and to keep the opponent in a constant state of indecision.

    Kashyap carried out this strategy impeccably. Chen Long is one of the fastest movers and hardest hitters in the world, but Kashyap played soft and denied him the opportunity to hit the full-blooded shot. To his credit, he did surprise Chen Long with the odd, precise smash, and the Chinese was so perplexed errors began to rain from his racket.

    ...Chen finally smashed wide on match point, and Kashyap had his careers greatest moment and oddly, there were no wild celebrations. Just a look heavenwards.

    Indonesia Open: Kashyap smashes his way into semis

    Dev Sukumar, June 15, 2012
    http://www.sportskeeda.com/2012/06/1...ay-into-semis/

    Excerpts:

    ...A day after upsetting world No.3 Chen Long of China, Kashyap appeared in no mood to take his foot off the pedal. He totally dominated Vittinghus, bringing his attacking game to bear. The Indian kept a handy lead throughout, frequently using his sharp smash to unsettle the Dane with 17 smash winners to just six from Vittinghus.

    Vittinghus got back into the game in the second set. He kept close until 9-all, and then Kashyap stepped up a gear and steadily increased the lead to take the set and match. He next takes on seventh seed Simon Santoso for a place in the final.

    Olympic badminton: Kashyap beats World No.11 to enter pre-quarters

    http://www.mid-day.com/sports/2012/j...n-olympics.htm
    July 31, 2012

    Excerpts:

    India's Olympic medal chances in badminton got a boost as Parupalli Kashyap entered the men's singles pre-quarterfinals in style, outplaying tenth seeded Vietnamese Tien Minh Nguyen in straight games here Tuesday.

    The Indian displayed sublime skills to defeat his higher ranked opponent 21-9, 21-14 in 39 minutes at the Wembley Arena and topped Group D.

    With the win, Kashyap equalled his head-to-head record against Nguyen to 3-3. Prior to the match, he had not beaten the Vietnamese since June 2010.

    I've become more mature as a shuttler, says Parupalli Kashyap

    London, Wed Aug 08 2012
    http://www.indianexpress.com/news/iv...ashyap/985441/

    Excerpts:

    ..."I have learnt a lot of things from the Olympics. I have become mature as a player now. Before the Olympics, I did not have big expectations. I was an underdog but after the first round, I felt I can win a medal here. I can beat anyone on my day," he said after returning to Hyderabad from London.

    "I felt really bad that I lost a chance to win a medal (for India). I was disappointed but at the end of the day it was great learning experience," he said.

    Putting the past behind, Kashyap is now determined to put up a good show in the upcoming Super Series events and other tournaments.

    "I am in good form for the last two months. I am setting short-term goals. I want to continue this form in Japan and China (Super Series events) in a month's time. I am very aware of it," the 25-year-old Hyderabadi said.

    The latest BWF rankings have Kashyap now ranked at 19, his highest ever, and the first time he has broken into the top 20. His impressive and consistent performance at the OG augurs well for him, and if he can move up the rankings further, he should be able to make it more consistently into the semis of major tournaments.

    But he still needs to work on some of his techniques, specially drops and net play. His drops from the baseline are too slow and often a bit loose; some of the top players would put them away in a flash. Ditto his net play at time.

    Overall though, his court coverage, mid-court game and reading of the play have improved a lot. His smashes have more venom and are well-directed, and his improved stamina allows him to be more patient and wait for the correct opening during a rally.

    It is good to see Kashyap finally approaching the point where he is beginning to fulfill his potential.

    I often feel that Kasyap has not reached his full potential. He is capable of more ......

    Problem with him is that he can be very focused against top players (notice his victory over Chen Long in Indonesia, and making LCW struggle at the Olympics q-finals) but is not quite as good playing people like Taufik Hidayat, for example.

    And this is despite the fact that his fitness has improved and his speed is probably among the fastest players in the current group.

    Kashyap wins maiden national title, Sayali regains crown

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/sports/more-sports/badminton/Kashyap-wins-maiden-national-title-Sayali-regains-crown/articleshow/16658406.cms

    SRINAGAR: India's top male shuttler Parupalli Kashyap notched up his maiden national title, while 2008 winner Sayali Gokhale stunned defending champion PV Sindhu to clinch the crown for the second time in the women's singles at the 77th Senior National Badminton Championship on Wednesday.

    London Olympics quarterfinalist Kashyap, who had reached the finals in the 2011 Nationals in Rohtak, prevailed over Ajay 21-18, 21-17 in a 45-minute battle to burst into jubilation.

    He was also the semifinalist at the 2009 Nationals. However, for 17-year-old Sindhu the competition ended on a disappointing note as Sayali played a better game to walk away with a 21-15, 15-21, 21-15 win and regain her title, which she had won in 2008.

    Doubles specialist Aparna Balan notched up two titles, winning the mixed doubles and women's doubles title, along with Arun Vishnu and Siki Reddy, respectively.

    Aparna first combined with Arun to see off Ashwini Ponnappa and Tarun Kona 21-13, 18-21, then paired up with Siki Reddy to brush off second seeds Varsha Belawadi and GM Nischitha 21-11, 21-13 to win the women's doubles title.

    In the men's doubles competition, young shuttlers Manu Attri and Sumeeth Reddy B notched up their maiden national title, beating third seeds Akshay Dewalkar and Pranaav Jerry Chopra 10-21, 21-14, 21-12 in a 40-minute match.

    World number 20, Kashyap lead the first game 11-9 at the break and even though Ajay clawed back a couple of times, the Hyderabadi pocketed the game.

    In the second game, Ajay was 10-8 up at one stage but Kashyap reeled off three points to move into the breather at 11-10. Slowly and steadily he once again widened the gap to move to the match point at 20-16. Ajay saved one match point, before Kashyap shut the door on him with a smash.

    I wish him to get cured from abdominal pain soon and come back. He is 20 in world ranking released by BWF recently.
