Though it was a loss, it is a significant achievement for Kidambi Srikanth who has been away due to fitness issues and lack of form. He suffered from a knee injury in 2017 French Open Final. Kidambi Srikanth is ranked 14th in the world. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy congratulated Kidambi Srikanth on the achievement. "Many congratulations to our Telugu Shutler @srikidambi on winning historic silver after a hard-fought final in BWF World Championship 2021. Wishing him all the best for a bright career and many more laurels in the future" posted YS Jagan on his twitter page.
