It includes beating Taufik Hidayat at the Indonesian's home tournament in 2013, and he also stunned Malaysia's world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei at the All England Open past year.

Long time friends and training partners Srikanth and Praneeth played each other in practice hundreds of times.

Praneeth, who was appearing in his first semi-final at a Superseries event, got off to a sublime start by winning the first 10 points of the match and leading 11-1 at the changeover in the first game.

It was Tai's first title in the city-state and she did not drop a game all tournament. It was the quality of his net play that helped him dig himself out of trouble and then those wristy strokes that caught Srikanth off guard did the job in the decider.

Praneeth too made Srikanth run for every point before closing in to make it 14-15.

With this win on Sunday, Praneeth took his head-to-head record against his more experienced rival Srikanth to 5-1.

Shark kills 17-year-old surfer in southern Australia
The Evening Standard reported that shark attacks have gone down in Australia to fewer than two attacks occurring per year. Nearby Wylies Bay beach has been closed until future notice and is being patrolled for any shark sightings.

On being reminded about the playful jabs that came his way after making the Malaysian Open main draw, Praneeth chuckles. Nearly all his matches, barring the semifinals in the tournament have been three-set affairs, a habit Gopichand isn't too pleased about.

"And it's not only men singles players even women singles players are also doing good", he added. Eventually, he won the OUE Singapore Open Men's final. Read Also: PV Sindhu's rise continues with career-high No. 2 ranking But Gopi Chand vetoed that plan without battling an eyelid.

The usually unflappable Marin had no answers to Tai's excellent defensive work and quick smashes as the diminutive 22-year-old edged ahead at 13-10 and eventually took the first game.

On this day, Srikanth raised visions of winning a third title before a resurgent Sai turned the match on its head.

"I think everyone around me is more concerned about these five titles".

"It's always hard to play someone with whom you play everyday".
