It's going to be yet another all-Indian affair in the final of men's singles this year as HS Prannoy and Parupalli Kashyap are set to take on each other in the summit match of US Open Grand Prix Gold in Anaheim on Monday.
Prannoy notched up a 21-14 21-19 win over Vietnam’s Tien Minh Nguyen in the first semi-final. Kashyap, on the other hand, eked out a hard-fought 15-21 21-15 21-16 win over Korean Kwang Hee Heo in the second semi-final, which lasted for 66 minutes.
Earlier in the year, Sameer Verma played Sai Praneeth in the final of the Syed Modi Grand Prix Gold. In April, Praneeth and Kidambi Srikanth followed it up by becoming the first Indian pair to feature in a Superseries final at Singapore Open.
It is however assured that one of the two shuttlers will win the US Open title for the first time for India, and also become the sixth Indian to win an international title this season after Verma (Syed Modi GPG), PV Sindhu (Syed Modi GPG, India Open), Saina Nehwal (Malaysia Masters), Sai Praneeth (Thailand, Singapore Open) and Kidambi Srikanth (Indonesia, Australia Open).
