Ace Indian shuttler B. Sai Praneeth produced a spirited performance as he fended off his fellow countryman Kidambi Srikanth in all-Indian men's singles final to lift his first ever Super Series title at the Singapore Open here on Sunday.
After going down in the first game, Praneeth rebounded strongly to register a 17-21, 21-17, 21-12 win over Srikanth in a thrilling summit showdown that lasted 54 minutes.
With the win, Praneeth has become only the second Indian to win a men's singles Super Series title.
Earlier, Praneeth and Srikanth had created history by setting up an all-Indian Super Series men's single final for the first time with dominating semi-final victories at the Singapore Open.
