Srikanth after annexing the China Open last week, has become a household name on the lips of badminton fans. However, the disdain with which China's Long Chen crushed him in the decider(21-6) of their today's SF clash of the HK event was clearly evident. The Chinese player was seeking to take revenge of Srikanth's win over Lin Dan last week.

First game was very close, went in the favor of Chen Long. Second game was taken by K Srikanth. In decider, chen long did not give any opportunity to Srikanth. He ran away with early lead and kept extending his lead. Unforced errors and inconsistent play on part of Srikanth helped Chen Long to win the decider comprehensively.But winning a game against Chen Long in the final of the tournament is no mean achievement. Well done Srikanth. Keep it up.
