Top seed Kidambi Srikanth clinched the Syed Modi Grand Prix Gold with a convincing win over China’s Huang Yuxiang in the men’s singles final on Sunday.

World No. 9 Srikanth, who had reached the finals even in the last edition as well, prevailed over 73rd ranked Huang 21-13, 14-21, 21-14.

Srikanth came into the men’s final with a 1-0 record against Huang, having beaten him last week at the Malaysia Masters at Penang and the Indian showed better control and picked up the gaps well in the first game against the Chinese.

The Indian led 11-8 at the break and continued to move ahead after the interval, cruising to the game point when the Chinese pushed to the back of the court, failed to recover enough ground to return a net dribble. Srikanth then sealed the game with a smash.

In the second game also, Srikanth went ahead to a comfortable 11-7 lead, but did not capitalize on it and allowed Huang to win the second game.

In the decider, Huang opened up an early lead of 7-4. Srikanth had to fight back his way to equal the scores at 8-8. The two fought neck to neck till 12-12 before the Indian again raised to al elad of 15-13.

Srikanth finally moved into the match point with a towering smash from the back court and then sealed it with another power-packed smash.

It was his fifth title having won the 2013 Thailand Grand Prix Gold, 2014 China Super Series premier and Swiss Open Grand Prix Gold and India Super Series last year.

Akshay and Pranaav continued their good run after the interval as they led 17-12. They moved into the game point with the Malaysian making an error. Pranaav hit one at the net before Akshay came up with a sizzling smash which the Malaysian didn’t have any answer to pocket the opening game.
The second game begun on an even-keel as both the parties moved neck to neck right from the start to 5-5 before the Malaysian managed to go 11-8 up at the break. However, the Indian quickly erased the deficit and grabbed a 14-11 lead when the Malaysian faltered at the net.

Akshay exploited the gaps well as they led 17-14. However, the Malaysians soon drew parity at 18-18 and went into the lead when Pranaav hit the net. Goh and Tan grabbed a game point when Akshay hit wide but the Indian saved one to make it 20-20.

At this stage, the Indian won a controversial point on their serve even as the Malaysian complained. With the advantage shifting too quickly, it was Goh and Tan who grabbed the final two points — one with a return that hit Akshay and another when the Indians hit wide.

After losing the second game, the Indians struggled in the decider as their wayward shots helped Malaysians to open up a 7-2 lead. More errors followed as the visitors led 11-5 at the break before capitulating without a fight.

Biography Of Yesteryear Indian Badminton Legend – Syed Modi

Syed Modi (1962–1988), is actually Syed Mehdi. Syed Mehdi was born in a Muslim family in the muffosil town of Sardarnagar in Uttar Pradesh. His father, Syed Meer Hassan Zaidi, worked in Sardarnagar sugar mill and his mother, a housewife. Syed Mehdi was the youngest of their eight children, six sons and two daughters.Syed_Modi

When Mehdi first began going to the local school, the person who entered his name in the school records mistook his name “Mehdi” for a common Indian surname “Modi” and wrote it down that way. As a result, this became his name in all educational and government records. Modi was average in his studies but, later became a notable sportsman.

He was very popular in his school for his open, affectionate nature and bright good looks. Modi’s elder brothers were not highly educated, but they worked and had very good hope on him and contributed towards the family expenses and supporting Modi in his childhood, having huge expectations on him.

Modi fulfilled their hopes as he became the junior national Badminton champion at the age of 14 in 1976. The same yearSyed Modi with his wife - timesofindia.indiatimes.com, Modi started training under Mr. P.K. Bhandari the then chief badminton coach, N.I.S, Patiala till 1982. Thereafter, he trained under Dipu Ghosh, National Coach of Indian team.

Modi won the national badminton championship at the age of 18 in 1980. In the same year, Government of India recommended his name and Modi was given a paying job as a Welfare Officer in the Indian Railways (NE). He was initially posted in Gorakhpur, nearest to his hometown and family. In 1982, his new coach wanted that he should train in Lucknow which had better facilities, so he was transferred there.

Syed Modi won the national badminton championship between 1980 and 1987, eight times in a row. In 1981, he received the Arjuna Award from the Government of India. At the 1982 Asian Games, he won the bronze at the men’s singles event. He took home the Men’s singles Gold at the 1982 Commonwealth Games. In 1983 and 1984, he won the Australian International.

He later married Amita, a fellow badminton player. His game started going downhill in 1987-88, when his marriage life was not happy, and Modi lost the national badminton championship for the first time in 1988. In May 1988, they had a baby daughter who they named Aakanksha.

Two months after the birth of his daughter, Modi was murdered. On the evening of 28 July 1988, at the age of 26, Modi was shot dead as he was coming out of KD Singh Babu stadium, Lucknow after a routine practice. A brilliant career was cut short and a severe blow was dealt to badminton in India as Modi was touted to be a superstar like Prakash Padukone. His murder sent shockwaves throughout India.

After Modi’s death, a badminton tournament was named in his memory, “Syed Modi Memorial”, All India Syed Modi badminton championship hosted each year at Lucknow, which turned into “Syed Modi International Challenge” in 2004, and from December 2009 it was graded to “Syed Modi Grand Prix”, organized by Badminton Association of India.

The Railways, where he was employed respected his badminton sport and as an employee, opened the Syed Modi Railway Stadium and auditorium at his native place, Gorakhpur.
