Buoyed by recent wins, Sai Praneeth says he can make his mark at the top-level

One of India’s most promising shuttlers, Sai Praneeth feels he has the quality to compete with the best in the business and emulate compatriots Parupalli Kashyap and K Srikanth in winning a Grand Prix Gold title.

In a week’s time, Praneeth stunned two top players -- former World number one and Olympic champion Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia and world number six Hu Yun of Hong Kong in Indonesia and Singapore, respectively. Praneeth said it was the training against the top players like Kashyap that has helped him to compete at the highest level. “We have all the top players from India in Gopichand academy. When we play against top players consistently, it helps our game,” Praneeth said.
