The Singapore Open Super Series Badminton tournament just finished this weekend.

Our Indian champions were all over this tournament!

Unfortunately our Olympic Ladies Singles Silver medalist PV Sindhu lost the semi finals to Carolina Marin of Spain. This is the same player she lost to in the Olympics finals in 2016, but won against after that in the Dubai and India Opens. It looks like they are pretty evenly matched!

The Indian Men fared very well at the Singapore Open Superseries. The final was played by 2 Indians!

Sai Praneeth and Kidambi Srikanth, training partners in everyday life, bared their teeth and faced off in the finals in Singapore! Praneeth won

Apparently (Times of India, Sunday April 16, 2017) Only 3 other countries have managed to do this in the past: China has done this many times, while Indonesia and Denmark have achieved this once each!


Q: What do all 3 Indian Aces have in common?

A: The same coach, Pullela Gopichan
