Kidambi Srikanth, who is the newly crowned World No. 1, went down in men's singles final match against former World No. 1 Chong Lee Wei on Sunday, Day 11 of the Commonwealth Games, to settle for silver. Long Malaysia's number one sportsman, Chong Wei has never topped the podium at the Olympics or world championships with a career tally of seven silver medals in major championships.
But he predicted a bright future for Srikanth, who only reached the top ranking on Thursday and beat Lee in the mixed-team final to seal gold for India. It was always a losing battle for Srikanth thereafter as the Malaysian was in no mood to let go of his grip on that gold medal with his fourth win over the Indian.

Slowly silently he walked through and finally with a big inside-out smash into the open court, the Indian took over Lee for the first time in the game, heading into the mid-set interval with a two-point cushion. A series of excellent rallies saw Lee take three consecutive points and take the lead at 15-14 before Srikanth drew level in very next point. He is the fourth Malaysian player after Rashid idek, Roslin Hashim and Wong Choong Hann to achieve such a ranking, and is the only Malaysian shuttler to hold the number one ranking for more than a year. The 25-year-old, now in Gold Coast for the Commonwealth games, staggering performance in the Super Series titles also helped him with the rating points, making him a strong contender for the top notch.
While Srikanth comfortably sealed the first game 21-19, the Malaysian shuttler bounced back in the next two games, registering a 21-19, 14-21, 14-21 victory over his Indian opponent to clinch gold. Kidambi Srikanth tried to make a comeback with a couple of points but he fell short to the incredible grit of the Malaysian. The Malaysian was off to a great start and by the break, he lead Srikanth 11-5.
"In one week, I played him two times in finals". Srikanth will be hoping to do a repeat of that performance against the unsafe Chong Wei.
