Sai Praneeth posted on his Instagram account that:

“With a mix of emotions, I pen down these words to bid farewell and announce my retirement from the sport that has been my lifeblood for over 24 years.” 


“Today, as I embark on a new chapter, I find myself overwhelmed with gratitude for the journey that brought me here.”


“Badminton, you have been my first love, my constant companion, shaping my character and giving purpose to my existence. The memories we’ve shared, the challenges we’ve overcome, will forever be etched in my heart.”

he stated that:

“I will be joining in April mid. I will be the head coach of the club, so I will be overseeing all the players there. Of course, once I am there, we will discuss elaborately about the role.”

Throughout his more than twenty-year career competing internationally, Praneeth had some great moments. However, his highlights came with winning the 2017 Singapore Open Super Series and earning a bronze medal at the 2019 World Championships in Basel, Switzerland.

Praneeth achieved his highest ranking of world number 10 and made it to the Tokyo Olympics. Sadly, he didn’t perform well, losing all his matches and exiting the competition surprisingly early during the group stage.

The 2010 world junior bronze medalist said that:

To my family – my grandparents, parents, and my loving wife Swetha – your endless encouragement has been the bedrock of my success. Without your unwavering support, none of this would have been possible.”


“A heartfelt thank you to Pullela Gopichand anna, the Gopichand Academy, and the entire coaching and support staff. I also thank my coaches from childhood Arif sir, and Govardhan sir.”


“I extend my gratitude to the Badminton Association of India, Sports Authority of India, TOPS, Sports Authority of Telangana State, Yonex, ONGC, GoSports, OGQ, APACS, WhatsInTheGame, PBL. Your belief in my dreams and your contributions to the sport have been instrumental in my journey.”
