Srikanth reaches 3rd successive Super Series final

The triumph is his second successive after clinching the Indonesia Open Super Series Premier title last week and Tendulkar said he was proud of "champion" Srikanth. He defeated the Olympic champion Chen Long in straight games 22-20, 21-16.

Srikanth, who was a runner-up in the Singapore Open and a victor at the Indonesian Open, joined the likes of Indonesia's Sony Dwi Kuncoro, Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei, the Chinese duo of Chen Long and Lin Dan, who have made it to three consecutive Super Series finals.

K. Srikanth continued his dream run and grabbed a third successive Superseries final spot at the Australian Open with a straight-game victory over China's Shi Yuqi here on Saturday.

Srikanth had lost all his five previous meetings to Chen, including two clashes in 2017 - Sudirman Cup quarter-final Men's singles rubber in May and German Open R16 in February. A focused Srikanth then changed his strategy and started playing an attacking game to edge past the World No.6.

He will face Chen Long of China in the final.

Srikanth Kadambi won the Australian Open Series and created a history.

It was Prakash Padukone and P Gopichand who were the legends of the men in India for the badminton, but now Srikanth has ensured that many more kids will take the racket to follow their passion for badminton.

No Indian has won the overall championship in many years, and the leaderboards have been dominated by the Chinese and Malaysian players. But Srikanth raced to a 6-2 lead over the current All England Champion and in a similar fashion to the opening game, took a 11-9 lead at the short break. Brutal, brilliant - Srikanth's aggressive game was right on point that gave the World No. 4 no chance to settle into the match.
