Australian open 2017

KIDAMBI SRIKANTH wasn’t marked out for success as an under-19 badminton player — he never won a national singles title as a junior. Five years on, the 24-year-old from Guntur, living in Hyderabad now, will be the most marked man at August’s badminton world championships after reaching three Super Series finals, and winning two: the youngest Super Series in Australia and the most popular one in Indonesia.
