Proud of you, champion: Sachin Tendulkar reacts to Kidambi Srikanth's incredible feat

Kidambi Srikanth reaches his third consecutive Superseries final with win over Shi Yuqi

The win also guarantees Srikanth a prize money of approx $56,250 after he took just 46 minutes to beat the former World No.1 22-20, 21-16 at the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre with relative ease. The former All England Badminton Championships victor says not just the win, but the manner in which Srikanth decimated the Chinese giant has given him a lot of joy.

He blew off the Chinese shuttler after the break, taking four consecutive points to lead 16-9 before another burst of five back to back points saw him take the opening game. He created history by defeating the Olympic champion Chen Long of China.

Let us hope Srikanth can continue to dazzle on the courts for a long time.

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.

The lead went on going back-and-forth in the second game and then both players adopted an attacking style of play post the changeover.

The Chairman of Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra responded to a random Twitter user's plea as he was disappointed with the amount Badminton Association of India (BAI) has awarded Kidambi Srikanth for winning Australian Open Super Series 2017.

Anand Mahindra who tweeted just after Srikanth's win and named him "STEAMROLLER SRIKANTH" did not seem happy about the prize as well.

Kidambi matched each step taken by Chen in the final.

He clinched Australian open super series cup by trouncing world top-ranked Chinese shuttler Chen Long.

Shi put up more of a fight in the early stages of the second game. But keeping with the trend of the game, Srikanth levelled things up at 19-all, before giving himself a game point opportunity after Long netted a return. Srikanth continued his dominance in the game as he took the game to Long with some incredible offensive shots.

"But this year my target tournament is the world championships and step-by-step I am getting better".
