Srikanth thus ends the Dubai World Superseries Finals 2017 winless, but at least he could show his usual fighting skills to snatch the second game. That was a big positive he can take away from his Dubai campaign.

He will need time to get back his confidence and usual sharpness. See you in 2018, champ!
