    I think Tennis is a better choice. Li NA just won 2.65 millions dollars for just one tournament.

    I think Sri won only because he won Game 1. Orders were to just play 2 games and not tire out the winner. ;)

    Yup, with future players the badminton powerhouse have secured 3 titles in doubles category, only miss WS final. And then 2012 WJC runner-up Xue Song will try to win his maiden title in senior level against home promising talent Srikanth.

    FINALS (02.00pm) => http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/s...654A31-19C1-4964-B5FF-7D1C35BF6536&d=20140126

    Only 2 nations involved in today's final : host India and China, almost all discipline will stage matches from same country except MS, save the best for last :D

    WS, Saina v Sindhu, both of them pushed hard effort to eliminate their opponents yesterday. The off-form Saina needs victory desperately here to end her title drought and boost confidence to perform well in next tourneys.

    No idea why you are so optinistic about prannoy. He is good player but he dont have so much varieties in his game as if srikanth has. With the current situation in india, he is the only one who can get a gpg title.

    HS Prannoy has beaten K Srikanth previously (and convincingly).

    In fact, having seen several times both these players play, I fully share cobalt's optimism.
    Prannoy nearly beat Lee Chong Wei while Srikanth came up very short.
    Prannoy has beaten Jan O Jorgensen, Taufik Hidayat and Boonsak Ponsana.
    Srikanth has beaten only Boonsak and has no other big scalps in his bag (yet).

    Also, Srikanth relies almost exclusively on the big smash.
    However, Prannoy has a very wide repertoire of shots.

    IMHO, very soon, Prannoy will be the man to beat :)

    I don't see Srikanth beating Xue Song today.
    I'm now waiting for him to prove me wrong :p

    Looks like China's future of XD is well secured. These 2 pairs look like the real deal.

    All four are impressive. Very soon we'll be seeing their coming of age on the world stage.

    It's high time for Sindhu to come out of Saina's shadow.

    the queen of indian badminton serves to the crown princess sindhu 8-1. who's watching? a thrown game, anyone? lol jk :p

    Will watch out for the young chinese mentioned by you all...good chance for them to prove themselves, having come this far.

    xue song is in a different class, which srikanth and prannoy are close to achieving if they stay consistent. prannoy beat srikanth back when srikanth was not this good all-around, imo srikanth has really excelled. i like his game better now...
    based on what transpired in 2013 and a few months before, i projected prannoy to be much higher up the rankings but it seems he's hit a wall. still, he's not failing to impress. this would be a good platform for him to shine and enter the big boys' club!

    Good to see the young Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav, of Uttar Pradesh here lending his support.

    Saina is so eager to win, Sindhu got to believe she can win too.

    It seems to me Saina knows Sindhu's game better than the other way round.

    Saina anticipates Sindhu's attacking shots well.
