Biography

Srikanth Kidambi

Srikanth Kidambi is one of the finest badminton players India has produced; having reached the number one spot in the world rankings as well as becoming the first Indian to win a men's title in the Super Series Premier event on the BWF Tour.

Born on February 7, 1993, at Ravulapalem in Andhra Pradesh, Srikanth Kidambi started playing badminton in 2001 at Guntur after watching his elder brother.

However, his talent only came to the fore after being admitted to the Pullela Gopichand Academy, where Srikanth was encouraged to play singles instead of doubles.

It was in 2014 that the shuttler announced his arrival into the elite of the badminton world.
