Kidambi Srikanth vs Kento Momota Prediction

Srikanth, who is ranked 14th in the world, is expected to face a steep challenge from Momota. The Indian’s 257 career wins compared to Momta’s 348 depicts the stark difference in not only their stature but the experience. Srikanth is expected to bow out of the tournament against the Japanese. The Indian will have to pull a rabbit out of the hat if he is to topple the top seed.
