Srikanth Kidambi (farmer)started his sports career playing cricket as his father was district level cricket player in his childhood. His father never stopped him from following his brother Nanda Gopal Kidambi footsteps and enter in the world of badminton. Both brothers were given the deadline till 10th if they don’t achieve anything till then they had to put sports at back and pursue with studies. His father requests to Gopichand(coach) to take him too in his academy as Srikanth left alone after the admission of his brother in the same academy. After admission, his true journey begins. Srikanth Kidambi started playing in doubles as his brother but Gopichand sees a single’s player in him and gives him advice, after that you could predict.

He started as a doubles player in which we need to direct shuttle in the middle of the court to confuse the opponent player. But taking coach advice he started singles in which we do need to direct shuttles in corners making it difficult for an opponent to cover the whole court. Transforming from doubles to singles is kind of challenging for him but he always works so hard on it that now everyone knows him for his trick shots.

Once he was discovered unconscious in Gopichand academy’s washroom after becoming the first Indian to won Grand Prix gold outside India and after taking him to the hospital there doctor discovers he has brain fever. He recovered soon and was able to play again by the motivation of his mother and coach.
Also, he got an ankle injury in 2016 which really changed his gameplay a lot as he was not able to take part in European circuit and missed the chance of becoming world number 1 player. But during recovering from an injury, he got a chance to analyze his mistake in gameplay and he became the better version of himself.

Skills and lifestyle of Srikanth Kidambi
