"Srikanth also has big victories in his career and he deserved to be in the final", said Sai, a B Com graduate from St. Joseph's College, Himayathnagar in Hyderabad, while paying tribute to his opponent in the final.

Praneeth has been constantly performing well in worldwide circuit since past few moonths.

In doing so, he became only the second male from India, after Srikanth, to win a Super Series title.

"To be facing someone you've played a thousand times before, practiced with another zillion times, had meals with three times a day and are around practically throughout the day daily, in a match, particularly for a title, can be an exasperating experience". "I began to get back my game". But later in the second game I reached 7-2, 7-3 and later we were going equal. "It's the reason why I have this medal today". Praneeth led by a comfortable margin throughout and closed out the game in 20 minutes.
