Some Lesser Known Facts About B. Sai Praneeth

  • Does B Sai Praneeth smoke: Not Known
  • Does B Sai Praneeth drink alcohol: Not Known
  • Since his parents were employees of a private company, they had a hard time creating a balance between professional and family life. As a result, they left their son, Praneeth, in the care of his maternal grandparents. Therefore, Praneeth met his parents only on weekends.
  • His maternal aunt, Kasturi Devi, was also a budding shuttler. However, she could not maker her dreams come true owing to a knee injury.
  • As a child, Praneeth endured a very hectic schedule as he had to attend not only his school but also Badminton training sessions. He would wake up at 4 A. M. so as to catch a bus that would take him to Gachibowli- located at a distance of 18 km- where the aspiring player would train for around 4 hours. He would then go back to attend his school and return home completely fatigued. A determined Praneeth, however, never complained about the hustle and bustle of the day.
  • He gained some much-needed recognition when he stunned Indonesia’s Taufik Hidayat at his home ground in 2013.
  • However, in late-2014, injuries started to plague him. Despite sustaining a foot injury, he played in the Senior National Badminton Championship in 2015, though the injury turned worse and he had to take a month’s break in order to recover.
  • At the 2016 All England Super Series Premier, Praneeth stunned the 2nd seed, Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei, in the first round itself and that too in straight sets.
  • After defeating counterpart Srikanth Kidambi in the 2017 Singapore Open Super Series final, Praneeth became only the second Indian (male) to win a Super Series title.
  • Just 2 months later, Praneeth added another accolade to his bag when he defeated Christie Jonatan of Indonesia to clinch the Thailand Grand Prix Gold title.
