The incredible string of results for Kidambi Srikanth, which has catapulted him straight into the elite of the badminton world has a lot to do with the unmatched endeavor of the 24-year-old. 2017 has been his best year till date and it goes without saying that India's No. 1 shuttler has done more than enough to step out of the shadow of Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu.
After his triumph in the French Open Super Series, Srikanth became just the fourth badminton player ever to win four Super Series titles in a year, which is indeed an extraordinary achievement.
In this article, we take a look at five of the biggest wins so far in Kidambi Srikanth's career.
#5 2017 Indonesia Open semifinal vs Son Wan Ho
Srikanth was facing South Korea's Son Wan Ho after more than three years and what made this encounter even more special was Srikanth's desire of overpowering his opponent who had beaten the 24-year-old Indian in their four straight previous meetings. Odds were against Srikanth who was ranked World No.22 at that time, while Wan Ho was World No.1.
In an emulous battle, Srikanth outclassed Wan Ho and won the match 21-15, 14-21, 24-22. Srikanth became the first Indian man ever to win the Indonesia Super Series Premier after he then got the better of Japan's Kazumasa Sakai in the finals.
