CWG 2018: Kidambi Srikanth Fails to Earn Gold Medal

Commonwealth Games 2018 Gold Coast Saina Nehwal sets date with Sindhu in women's singles final

However, Srikanth faces an uphill task against Chong Wei, who will be looking to end his final Commonwealth Games campaign with a gold medal.

Srikanth, who became the world No.1 on Thursday, had a brilliant week at Gold Coast but could not get over the line against the two-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist. 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.

Saina played all the matches in the mixed team championship before competing in the individual event.

Despite much negotiation from Srikanth, Chong Wei emerged victorious and claimed another gold medal for Malaysia.

Dato' Lee Chong Wei is a Malaysian professional badminton player. It's not easy mentally. The first time I lost as well as the time would be your last in one person. I think mentally I was very, very strong.

"I arrived and the crew function was forgotten by me and simply focused".

On the 10-year age difference between the two of them, he said: "It's only a number, right". " I neglect my age.

He also won the singles gold at the 2006 (Melbourne) and 2010 (New Delhi) editions but did not play at the 2014 Glasgow edition. Earlier, Saina Nehwal's aggression and intensity quite literally wilted PV Sindhu as she picked up the women's singles Commonwealth Games gold medal with exhilarating triumph in the final today.

If rankings in the world sport are anything to go by, Indian ace shuttler Kidambi Srikanth added another laurel to his loaded hat as he stormed his way into the top rung of BWF men's ranking, replacing Denmark's Viktor Axelson from the elite list. 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.
