And we'll have yet another Sunday with an Indian fighting for a Superseries title. Has become a regular affair these days, hasn't it? But we are not complaining at all. In fact, we would want more of it!

20:53 (IST)28 OCT 2017

HS Prannoy is nearly there, just did not do enough towards the end to stave off the Srikanth challenge. But we are sure his time will definitely come sometime soon.

This was a day to be proud of Indian badminton. How far our men's singles has progressed, this showed.

20:50 (IST)28 OCT 2017

Wow! What a match that was! 

Just no words left to describe Srikanth Kidambi's finishing skills. Looked jaded, yet won. Says a lot about why he's been winning so much. He continues to amaze us all! Knows when to raise one's level. And that is the sign of a true champion!
