Our players have accepted/ gelled with Handoyo coaching style and started given the results ... Definitely a setback for us.

Yes, this year our players like Sirknath,Prannoy, Praneeth benefitted a lot from Handoyo's presence as Gopichand himself cannot pay good level of attention to all players. Sad that he seems to be leaving. We need to get a similar level of replacement to keep the improvement going.

Nice summary of our current doubles scene by doubles coach Kim Tan Her-

India has a long way to go in doubles, says coach Kim Tan Her

There has indeed been some good improvement since Kim joined the coaching team. Satwik-Chirag are now #25 ,Manu-Sumeeth #30 and Arjun-Shlok #25 in mens doubles, Ashwini-Sikki #25 in womens doubles, Pranav-Sikki #21 and Satwik-Ashwini #58 in mixed doubles.

Hope by 2020, we can get at least 1 pair each in top 10 which can make them medal contenders at Olympics. Not easy to achieve that though.

Sameer Verma has reached the final of Swiss Open 300 Super 300 ( equivalent to grand prix gold).

These are his results this week -

[R1] Sameer Verma (IND,44) d. Thomas Rouxel (FRA,74) 22-20,21-10
[R2] Sameer Verma (IND,44) d. Yu Igarashi (JPN,58) 11-21,21-18,21-16
[QF] Sameer Verma (IND,44) d. Kenta Momota (JPN,42) 21-17,21-16
[SF] Sameer Verma (IND,44) d. Kantaphon Wangcharoen (THA,49) 21-14,11-21,21-12

Win in the QF against Momota was big as Momota was making his comeback and was on a 38 match winning streak.

Among our other players, Guru Sai Dutt reached the QF before losing to the Thai teenager who lost to Sameer in the SF. This was Guru's best performance after a long time.

Next,

[F] Sameer Verma (IND,44) vs. Jan O Jorgensen (DEN,112)

Like Momota, Jorgensen is making his comeback and will be tough to beat in the final.

Sameer wins the title with another very good win know the final.

[F] Sameer Verma (IND,44) d. Jan O Jorgensen (DEN,112) 21-15 21-13

His first grand prix gold level title outside India.
He will come up to 31-32 in rankings now and will keep going up as he lost a lot of time last year due to injury.

P Kashyap posted a photo on Instagram with a trophy. From the background, it looked like he must have won the Austrian Open. Double delight for us in Badminton!!

Yes, that was Austrian open international challenge tournament which Kashyap won. That was much lower level event than what Sameer won. More like challenger level tournament as compared to lower ATP level tournaments which Sameer won.

Anyway, this is an article on him -

This week there was a BWF super 100 tournament in Hyderabad. ( similar to grand prix level earlier).

Everyone except our top 2 in mens singles ( Srikanth,Prannoy) and top 2 in womens singles ( Sindhu,Saina) played here. We won 2 titles in mens singles and mens doubles and narrowly lost mixed doubles final.

These are the final results -

Mens singles

[F] (1) Sameer Verma (IND,21) d. Joo Ven Soong (MAS,91) 21-15 21-18

Mens doubles

[F] (1) Satwiksairaj Rankireddy / Chirag Shetty (IND,21) d. (3) Akbar Bintang Cahyono/ Mohd. Reza Pehlawi (INA,47) 21-16 21-14

Mixed doubles

[F] (1) Pranav Chopra /Sikki Reddy (IND,24) l. (6) Akbar Bintang Cahyono/ Winny Octavina (INA,50) 21-15 19-21 23-25

Second seed Sai Praneeth got upset in the first round itself here. So, good that at least Sameer lived up to his seeding.
First title at this level for Satwik and Chirag which is a good morale booster for them.

Our top players should be playing at Super 750 tournament in Japan next week.

Saina Nehwal has pulled out from Japan Open starting tomorrow. She has choosen China 1000 and Korea 500 and Sindhu has choosen Japan 750 and China1000 out of three super series in the month of September. Good decision as back to back 3 super series would be tough I guess for them. With Saina's withdrawal Sindhu path towards Semi Final seems smooth. For Men's except Praneeth everyone is playing in Japan starting tomorrow.
