One of the favorites in the Men’s Singles category, Kidambi Srikanth, faced disappointment at the Dubai World Superseries Finals 2017. Despite his success earlier in the season, Srikanth struggled to find his form and fell in straight games to Chou Tien Chen. Both players were under pressure, with Chou having lost his opening match as well. The match seemed to be heading for a decider, with Srikanth leading 17-14, but a sudden dip in his performance allowed Chou to take the win.

Reflecting on his inconsistent performances, Srikanth attributed his loss to losing momentum after a break following his victories in Denmark and France. He acknowledged the challenge of competing against top players in tournaments like the World Superseries Finals. Srikanth’s defeat left the weight of Indian expectations on the shoulders of Pusarla V Sindhu in the Women’s Singles category, as she advanced to the semi-finals after winning her second consecutive match against Sayaka Sato of Japan.

On the other side of the net, Chou was ecstatic to remain in the tournament and now looks forward to a challenging match against Viktor Axelsen. The outcome of their match will determine Axelsen’s fate in the tournament, as he lost to China’s Shi Yuqi after defeating Srikanth in the previous match.

In another surprising result, top-seeded Men’s Doubles pair Marcus Fernaldi Gideon/Kevin Sanjaya fell to Takeshi Kamura/Keigo Sonoda in straight games. The Japanese duo displayed exceptional attacking and defending skills, securing a spot in the semi-finals. Gideon and Sanjaya, winners of six titles on the MetLife BWF World Superseries circuit this year, acknowledged their opponents’ sturdy defense as a key factor in their defeat. To advance to the semi-finals, Gideon and Sanjaya must win in straight games against China’s Li Junhui/Liu Yuchen.
