Srinkanth Storms into Third Successive Superseries Final

India's Kidambi Srikanth lifted his second consecutive Superseries title of the year after defeating Olympic gold medallist Chen Long 22-20, 21-16 at the Australian Open final in Sydney on Sunday. He finished runner-up at the Singapore Open before winning the Indonesia Open title last week.

"I'm playing better after the Sudirman Cup".

Srikanth defeated two-time All England champions Chen Long of China, on Sunday.

It was Prakash Padukone and P Gopichand who were the legends of the men in India for the badminton, but now Srikanth has ensured that many more kids will take the racket to follow their passion for badminton.

Srikanth took an early 5-3 lead before he capitalized on Long's sluggish defence to lead 11-9 at the mid-game interval of the opening game.

"It is really a happy moment that Srikanth has won".

Srikanth has now reached his third consecutive final.

Randolph initially told authorities she was folding laundry and watching TV and realized within an hour that her kids were "gone". At the time Randolph stated the kids were exposed to the extreme temperature levels in the vehicle for "no greater than an hour".

"To beat Chen Long in the final of a big event is not easy".

The see-saw battle continued for a while before Srikanthbroke away to lead 6-3, dominating the rallies with his accurately, rather awkwardly, placed shots, which Long found hard to return.

With 25,060 points, he trailed only Chinese Taipei's Chou Tien Chen, who had 28,090 points against his name this year.

Both the games were a close contest in the initial stage but post the interval in the first game Chen came close to winning it when he was leading 19-17. Even Srikanth agreed that Mulyo's inputs have helped him.

The second game started with an incredibly long rally that Srikanth won with a smash down the line.

After the break, the Chinese tried to be more aggressive but Srikanth managed to reach 15-8. He once again gained a three-point advantage at the interval with another attacking net play.

Srikanth secured a total of 9200 points after emerging as the victor which will take his tally to 34260 points.
