PARIS, Oct 29: India�s Kidambi Srikanth�s dream season continued as he brushed aside the challenge of Japan�s Kenta Nishimoto in straight games to win the French Open Super Series men�s singles title, here today.
Having already completed a hat-trick of Super Series titles, Srikanth won his fourth title of the season.
Srikanth, seeded eight in the tournament, took just 34 minutes to get the better of his Japanese opponent 21-14, 21-13 in the summit clash.
The win ensured Srikanth, who played his fifth Super Series final this season, bag his second consecutive title in two weeks after winning the Denmark Open in Odense last week.
Srikanth, thus, became only fourth men�s singles player to win four or more Super Series titles in a calendar year.
Going by Srikanth�s current form, it was expected to be a one-sided summit clash and it turned out to be one, except for the first few points of the opening game which was a neck-and-neck fight between the two shuttlers. � PTI
