Kidambi Srikanth vs Lee Chong Wei

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

Sunday's victory was by no means guaranteed given his first career loss to Srikanth in the mixed team final last week but Chong Wei drew on all his experience, and the skills that kept him as world No. 1 for almost four years from 2008.

As a singles player, Lee was ranked first worldwide for 199 consecutive weeks from 21 August 2008 to 14 June 2012.

Malaysia's Chong Wei Lee (R) hugs India's Srikanth Kidambi after their badminton men's final match at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

"I lost in the group event to him and that I wanted to return from the respective function".

He said he will not be back at another Commonwealths, and when asked if he would go for gold in 2020, Lee replied: "I don't know, year to year I will play first because now I'm very scared of injuries". The first time I lost and the second time is the final in the individual.


"I really term it as next to my Olympic medal and my world No.1 ranking". I think mentally I was very, very strong. Despite the silver, the Indian shuttler had several positives to take from the sporting extravaganza with his gold-winning performance against the Malaysian in the team event being the highlight.

Recently crowned Worlds' No.1 badminton player, Kidambi Srikanth is all set to take the stage against two-time CWG Champion, Lee Chong Wei. "It's only a number, right", he shrugged. In the second half, the Malaysian, who had bagged the gold in men's singles and mixed team events in Melbourne 2006 and New Delhi 2010, used his decade-long experience to outsmart Srikanth and take the summit clash to a thrilling decider.

Srikanth showed some excellent defensive technique in the second game, but saw himself trailing as the game approached its second break.

Earlier in the day, Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal clinched gold after a 21-18, 23-21 victory in the all-Indian women's singles final against PV Sindhu. Srikanth, who surpassed Denmark's Viktor Axelsen to become world's number 1 just three days ago, opened his account while Lee had five points to his kitty.
