Ace shuttler from Andhra Pradesh Kidambi Srikanth created record.

Earlier this month, Srikanth came out with a spectacular performance as he defeated unseeded Kazumasa Sakai of Japan in straight games to win his maiden men's singles title of the Indonesia Super Series Premier badminton tournament in Jakarta. "It is special for sure coming up against someone like Chen who has been playing so well in this championship", Srikanth told Sportstar after the straight-games victory.

But in the second chance, Srikanth didn't let go and won the game. Srikanth's compatriot H S Prannoy tweeted: "Looks like it's getting tough for everyone to Clinch titles when Indian boys are in form!"

However, aided by his deceptive shots and searing smashes, the Indian shuttler took 11-9 lead at the break.

Srikanth set up the final clash against Olympic champion Chen Long.

Appeals court overturns conviction of 'Making a Murderer' inmate
Judge Hamilton said that the decision "breaks new ground and poses troubling questions for police and prosecutors". Avery was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide and unlawful possession of a firearm as a felon.

In the first game, the 24-year-old Srikanth played a ideal net game which troubled Long.

After watching Srikanth's display in Sydney, Gopichand had no second thoughts in saying that the four-time Superseries victor possess one of the strongest attacking styles in world badminton. It was fitting that Srikanth won the opening game after Chen failed to read a backhand as Chen often struggled to match Srikanth's deceptive play at the net.

"So I was thinking of what I could do from here because they have been good to me".

"I was not thinking of winning or losing", he said after securing his second consecutive BWF World Superseries crown.

Kidambi matched each step taken by Chen in the final. Take a bow, Srikanth! Srikanth has previously reached the final of the Singapore Open and Indonesia Open. He was all calm in the second game. Srikanth did not let the lead slip from that point, raising his game by quite a few notches against an increasingly faltering Long.
