And with that, we wrap up our liveblog. What a day it has been! And what a couple of weeks it has been for Indian badminton on the European swing!

Let us hope Srikanth gets enough rest before the National Championships that is scheduled end of the next week and gets ready for the last two Superseries events of the year in China and Hong Kong.
...
This is Srikanth's sixth career Superseries title - 2014 China Open, 2015 India Open, 2017 Indonesia Open, 2017 Australian Open, 2017 Denmark Open and now 2017 French Open.
...
Even when he looked tired, he still found out a way to dig deep and successfully cross the finish line.

There's so much to learn from this man! So many reasons to admire him!

He has now done what no Indian has ever done - winning four Superseries titles in a season!

And he is also the first Indian to win the French Open since it attained the status of a Superseries event!
...
What a performance! What determination! Can this man ever get tired of winning?

This is the second time he has won back-to-back titles in consecutive weeks, having done it back in June at the Indonesia Open and the Australian Open.
