Srikanth Kidambi, Indian badminton star has had a successful 2017. He has won 3 major Super Series tournaments and reached the final in one.

This past weekend he won the Denmark Open. He took a mere 25 minutes to beat his opponent, South Korea’s Lee Hyun-il 21-10, 21-5 to take home the title and a cheque of 56,000 dollars.

Srikanth has been working extremely hard to improve his game. He has worked on using his aggressive instincts strategically against his opponents while at the same time improving his defence. His success in 2017 can also be credited to studying his opponents carefully and playing to their weaknesses.  He currently trains at the famous Gopichand Badminton Academy, Hyderabad along with other super stars like Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu.
