Yet another star emerges from Gopichand Academy, this time it’s 24-year-old Kidambi Srikanth, currently ranked World Number 8 in Badminton.

After Kidambi Srikanth’s back-to-back wins in the World Badminton Super Series, he has stormed into the World Top 10, entering the elite group at Number 8. Now, the 24-year-old Guntur lad, yet another star produced by former world champion Gopichand, is already being talked of as being in the same league. After defeating the World Olympic champion, Chen Long to claim the Australian Open Super Series, Srikanth followed it up with a triumph over Japan’s Kazumasa Sakai in the Indonesia Open Final recently. This achievement has made Srikanth the first Indian shuttler to win consecutive Super Series titles. Riding on the crest of his self-confidence, Srikanth has vowed that there is much more to come.

Saturn to boost Srikanth’s fortunes
Srikanth has Saturn atmakaraka and karakamsa becomes Virgo. Saturn is placed in its own sign. Aspecting Saturn and bhatru karaka Sun makes his chart very strong. Saturn brings revelations and recognition through hard work, perseverance and dedication.

He will achieve fame and glory
He also has exalted Venus, and Jupiter is aspecting it, which will make him achieve great results. Mercury is in the star of Mars, indicating his attacking mindset and well-thought-out game plan.

Consistent performances
Currently, the transiting Jupiter is moving over the natal Jupiter and aspecting Saturn, Sun and Jupiter. Due to such a benefic transit of Jupiter, Srikanth has so far achieved splendid results in major tournaments. He will continue to perform well in the latter part of 2017 as well. The transiting Jupiter will help his career significantly from September 2017. However, the forthcoming transit of Rahu in Cancer will remain difficult for him, due to which he may face some resistance.

International ranking to improve remarkably
The transiting Jupiter will help him battle it out and allow him to make his mark at the International level between October 2017 and September 2018. Srikanth’s ranking will improve significantly. However, he will have to take extra care of his health and fitness during the latter half of 2017, and again between April and August 2018.
