India’s Srikanth Kidambi in the finals in 2017 Crown Group Australian Badminton Open

Men’s Singles

Srikanth Kidambi’s dream run at the Australia SuperSeries continued today when he easily defeated China’s Shi Yuqi, ranked fourth in the world.

Kidambi took out the first set 21-10 and the second 21-14, sending him to his third consecutive SuperSeries final.

“I am coming back,” Kidambi of India said. “I have played the Singapore finals after two years. And to play the next two then it is a kind of dream for me for sure.

“I was in control of the whole thing and given easy points in the start. I really wanted to stay there. He [Shi Yuqi] is someone who wants to keep the shuttle and not go for the hard strokes so I just wanted to stay in there and not give him easy points.”
