Kidambi Srikanth thanks Sachin Tendulkar for 'billion wishes' worthy tweet post Australia Superseries win
The Australian Open Superseries saw a change in odds for the Indian after he had lost five times in a row earlier to his Chinese opponent Long.
India have been clubbed with Denmark and Indonesia in the qualifying rounds of the Sudirman Cup scheduled to be held at the Gold Coast, Australia from May 21-28.
A final finish at Singapore Open sealing his World Championship berth, Srikanth says he needs to curb his inconsistency to return with a medal from Glasgow.
Sindhu has slipped down from the world no. 2 ranking she achieved after winning the Indian Open, and is eager to move up the ladder.
India will be sending full teams for the Thailand Open Grand Prix Gold (May 30-June 4), Indonesia Open Super Series (June 12-18) and Australian Open Super Series (June 20-25).
Saina and Sindhu were in action yesterday when they teamed up for their employers Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) in a doubles rubber at the 38th PSPB inter-unit badminton championship in Bangalore.
The 30-year-old recovered from the knee injury and made a comeback late last year only to hurt his shoulder at the Premier Badminton League in January.
Saina said she intended to play in Thailand Open, Indonesian Open and Australian Open before the August World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland.
The 24-year-old became only the fourth Indian to win a Super series title in Singapore last month and his maiden victory saw him jump eight places to World No.22, earning him a World Championship berth at Glasgow.
Sikki and Sumeeth, who tied the knot in February, have been consistently performing well for India and are regulars in the national team.
Top Indian shuttlers have given a miss to the National Championship over the last few years and Sarma said he had interacted with the players regarding the issue and they have agreed to participate in one of the events in a year.
Sindhu, who won a historic Silver medal at Rio Olympics last year, said she was hopeful that her biopic could inspire millions.
Sindhu, seeded fourth in the tournament, lost 21-15, 14- 21, 22-24 against her eighth-seeded Chinese opponent in the quarterfinal contest that lasted one hour and 17 minutes.
Rio Olympic silver medallist and fourth seed Sindhu continued her domination right from the start against Japan's Aya Ohori and won the match 21-14, 21-15.
Saina, who recently made a first-round exit at the Malaysia Open, underwent knee surgery after the 2016 Rio Olympics and since recovering the Hyderabad girl has been struggling to return to her menacing best
While the cricket fans are anxiously waiting for the release of Sachin Tendulkar's biopic, another one is in the making for them. Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal's biopic is in making and her role would be played by none other than Shraddha Kapoor.
