Srikanth is probably the best Indian Men's Singles badminton player in the last 2 decades. In this same tournament, Momota also got knocked out today. As did Chen Long. As did Ginting. You can't win them all. Look how fallible Momota is. While I agree it seems like Srikanth has stagnated in the last 2 years, he is still one of the best players in the world and on his good day, he is capable of winning a SS and beating the best in the world.
