FRENCH Open badminton 2017

Srikanth took just 34 minutes to ease past Japanese qualifier Kento Nishimoto in the Super Series final 21-14, 21-13 at the French Open Badminton Final. In the process Srikanth surpassed Saina Nehwal as the only Indian to win four Super Series titles in a year. Saina won three in 2010

By doing so, the 24-year-old shuttler became only the fourth male player in the history of the game to win four singles Superseries titles in a calendar year after Lin Dan, Lee Chong Wei and Chen Long.
