Kidambi Srikanth wins India Open men's title
Kidambi Srikanth brought more joy to the Indian camp after Saina Nehwal's victory when he won the men's singles title at the India Open Super Series.
He beat Denmark's Viktor Axelsen 18-21, 21-13, 21-12 to win his maiden India Open Super Series title.
Srikanth did not start well in his men's singles final against the sixth seed, losing the first game to the Dane.
However, the Guntur-born lad showed his true colours when he totally dominated Axelsen to easily win the second game and push the match into the decider.
It remained an even contest till the time Axelsen was leading 12-10. But Srikanth suddenly found legs to clinch an incredible 11 successive points to win the game without breaking a sweat.
This is second seed Srikanth's second win over Axelsen in as many meetings after beating the Dane in the Swiss Open Grand Prix Gold final earlier this month.
