Srikanth Kidambi Out India’s Campaign Ends In Japan Open

Kidambi Srikanth crashed out of the men’s singles event after losing a marathon three-game quarterfinal to draw curtains on India’s campaign at the USD 700,000 Japan Open badminton tournament here Friday.Just like his compatriots, fatigue seemed to have caught up with the seventh-seeded Srikanth as he squandered a game’s lead to lose 21-19 16-21 18-21 against Korea’s Lee Dong Keun in a duel that lasted an hour and 19 minutes.

Srikanth, who won a silver at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, had earlier avenged his Asian Games loss to Hong Kong’s Wong Wing Ki Vincent with a clinical straight game win in the previous round.

But Ginting proved too good for Srikanth, whose best performance this season has been a semifinal appearance at the Malaysia Open
