No15 is expected to become World No2 this week (Source: Reuters) Related News Aparna Popat remembers singles players in her time being encouraged to practice a bit of doubles not just to add to the armoury of strokes but to develop the ‘doubles instinct’ — going forward to kill the shuttle Kidambi Srikanth’s staple stroke — the one where he stomps to the net to finish with a tap kill picking the shuttle well above the chord — was honed with that same doubles instinct His six Super Series titles have been strung together charging the net with decisive strides and pouncing on the shuttle to almost scare his opponents It’s been the bedrock of his junior career where he revelled in playing doubles – with its parallel game of drives pushes and taps And this net tap had been the highlight of his first-ever Super Series conquest – against Lin Dan in China More recently he rattled the 6’4” imposing Dane Viktor Axelsen on his way to the Denmark Open title Axelsen had managed to nick the first set 21-14 But he could sense the lull ahead of the net-storm Srikanth shrugged off respect for his opponent’s World Championship-winning game in a jiffy at one point in the second set and began gunning for the net with such ferocity that the Dane would visibly flinch from playing at the front court and avoid the net thereafter unable to stem the flooding of net winners as he lost 14-21 22-20 21-a staggering-7 In the semis the next day Wing Ki Wong was lured into engaging in a few dribbles at the start – the Hong Kong player started lifting but completely lost confidence when Srikanth started slashing his taps – snorting them like the breath of a dragon The doubles instinct has armed the 24-year-old with the confidence to take on any top player from his early days – and his stunning execution leaves a haunting blur from which many don’t recover He might not be as massive as Chen Long but Kidambi Srikanth looms large at the net and is unforgiving on the kill Having got a fraction of a second faster and catching the shuttle higher to whack it Srikanth’s only getting more ominous It’s second nature for him to attack the net given the muscle memory of his doubles game which makes him unique on the singles circuit And now he’s added variations to go with the sheer speed He taps fast — varying it straight and across: in the French final Kenta Nishimoto was ready for the tap that plunged down straight but could do little when Srikanth with his tremendous control started hitting across — with a last-minute tweak of the wrist And he’s got a mean dribble to boot with the constant menacing threat It’s badminton’s hit-and-run for shuttle and needs plenty of power — to bound to the net and effect the net-kill with the same intensity of a smash That he is picking the shuttle early right on top of the net at a height means he denies opponents any time to react What makes him even more lethal is a shot he learnt for a lark while training in doubles as a teenager It is his stop-and-play flick where he holds the shuttle a split second before thrashing it home Shuttlers at Gopichand’s academy typically have something called an ‘easy session’ where they engage in standing strokes — minus all the scurrying about a break for their stamina reserves It’s in these standing stroke-hitouts that both Srikanth and Sai Praneeth go about fiddling with their net games and replay the hybrid strokes in live time Interestingly Sai Praneeth had beaten Srikanth in junior doubles finals but he’s not as quick as the 6-time Super Series winner Srikanth’s confidence at the net is pristine arrogance and risk-taking the kinds that Indians could boast about Gopichand is pretty pleased with his ward’s driving game and the generic speed that saw Srikanth jump ahead from the centre of the court in the French final and then move back within seconds “His tap is pure speed The pouncing comes from quality leg-work he’s always had this and he’s always been fast” he explains The smash Even so against Nishimoto Srikanth missed 4 taps What he did unerringly was smash – the champ’s other statement stroke Here is someone confident enough to go for the lines at 20-all and his straight down-the-line smash is a thing of darting-arrow beauty Against Lee Hyun Il in Denmark Srikanth could send two straight down and the cross as a surprise the next instant Timing his jump to perfection Srikanth uses his signature sharp contact with the shuttle for an overhead dominance that spells doom and gets unplayable on fast courts on days when he’s ‘feeling good about the smash’ So his bread ‘n butter is the down-the-line which demands accuracy: getting under the shuttle jumping up and thwack Usually he’ll float a few tosses in rallies and wait to get the perfect height and position to smash But there’s the most recent Smash 30 that’s getting experts excited It’s the ‘half-leap hit’ which defies most laws of physics “What he’s doing exceedingly well these days are these half-leaps back to attack the shuttle that’s somewhat short It’s smashes for which you don’t get a lay-up and need tremendous strength” Popat explains In going for this shot Srikanth will jump diagonally backwards So his body momentum is moving back but the smash is directed decidedly forward With these energies not in sync Srikanth has to rely on his leg strength get himself time to swing hard and additionally get himself the height He’s no mug with the half-smashes and drops either “He’s innately smart and just knows stuff on court” Gopichand says adding “He sees vacant angles and gaps on court that others might not He’s also quick to act on seeing where his opponent is rushing And then there’s the speed on the hard smash” The defensive winners What Gopichand does frown upon a tad though are Srikanth’s reflexive flicks in defence that end up as sensational winners talking like a mother who doesn’t approve of her kid’s stunts on the ledge He clucks to say disapprovingly “It looks good but it’s just some fancy thing” So when opponents go for Srikanth with body smashes he contrives to get himself in what must be a very awkward position – taking it behind his body and still manages to instinctively flick it back in placements that are in some incorrigible instances winners Gopichand rolls his eyes at the backhand grip though most are dazzled that he can convert on these crosscourt defensive flicks It’s bravado but looks sensational when the shuttle flies for a winner The forehand ones which he can manage by being wily and moving the body out of the way – hit from behind can be deceptive too Again it’s a doubles skill and given he’s powerful in his wrist Srikanth turns one of the most disadvantageous positions into one of advantage The last mile Still Srikanth is not quite the master of his destiny till he figures a way to negotiate slow courts – mostly by gritting it out and grinding out long rallies His defence could improve as could his holding backcourt game He is yet to beat Lin Dan Lee Chong Wei and Chen Long in the big events and Son Wan Ho showed he’ll outrun him on a slow court The Chinese left-handed Tian Houwei remains his nemesis With his high-risk game – and despite the recent monkish consistency – errors can creep in at any time when he can’t temper his attacking instinct And he was lucky to down a rampaging Prannoy who fell to nerves But 2017 has been about savouring some delectable strokes – and transcribing Indian badminton’s most fascinating mind For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Milind Ghatwai | Bhopal | Published: June 28 2015 2:28 am Related News With help from an amendment it passed nine months earlier the Madhya Pradesh government on Saturday allowed Lokayukta P P Naolekar to continue in office in spite of the fact that his term ends on Sunday The state government’s move has drawn criticism from social activists as well as a former Lokayukta who claim that the extension granted to the former Supreme Court judge was a “reward” for several favourable orders Former Lokayukta Faizanuddin in a scathing indictment of Naolekar said “One should not continue in office when one’s credibility has been questioned’’ Share This Article Related Article The amendment last year said Faizanuddin indicated that “you had made up your mind and there must be something that saw you advocate the continuation of this authority It’s really disgusting to hear such things about a Supreme Court judge’’ Meanwhile a group of activists said they would hold a peaceful protest at the Lokayukta’s office Monday during which they will gift him roses and request him to “please go home” Reacting sharply to the criticism Naolekar said “I am not here to make everyone happy Just because there were complaints (against ministers and the chief minister) should I hang them The order on the CM (he gave a clean chit to Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the dumper scam) passed the scrutiny of law Other orders (on ministers) can be challenged’’ When queried about the former Lokayukta’s comments Naolekar said “He is entitled to his opinion’’ On why his successor had not been appointed the Lokayukta said that question should be addressed to the state government “Maybe it’s my work I have done more in my tenure than (has been done in) the previous 12 years’’ he said without naming Faizanuddin who retired in 2003 “How can I simply retire There is no up-Lokayukta either The institution will be headless’’ Naolekar said On the opposition by activists he said such “protests would amount to interference in work” Naolekar claimed that some people were “against him” even before he took over as the Lokayukta Meanwhile Minister of State Lal Singh Arya who holds the General Administration Department (GAD) portfolio said the process to appoint Naolekar’s successor was going on “I can’t give a time-frame but the successor will be appointed soon’’ he said while praising Naolekar for acting against the “corrupt” “The allegations against the Lokayukta are baseless He probed the complaints and then gave a clean chit’’ the minister said Principal Secretary GAD K Suresh said his department has already written to the Chief Secretary’s office about initiating the process to appoint a new Lokayukta Leader of Opposition Satyadev Katare who has to be consulted to appoint Naolekar’s successor had recently asked the government to start the process After the amendment extended Naolekar’s tenure to seven years Katare had written to the Governor and called the move “unconstitutional’’ RTI activist Ajay Dubey alleged that the government was extending Naolekar’s term to reward him for exonerating as many as 10 ministers from corruption charges “Such an extension is harmful to democracy We doubt his integrity and ability to act against the government after having benefited from the illegal extension’’ he said Dubey claimed that the state government had months
