Lakshmi Arunkumar turns match for under-16 title

Lakshmi Arunkumar bounced back from an indifferent start to beat Tanushri Pandey 0-6, 6-3, 7-5 for the under-16 girls title in the AITA Super series junior tennis tournament at the CLTA Complex on Friday.

Lakshmi made the under-18 doubles final with Sanvi Ahluwalia, but was beaten by Vanshika Choudhary and Sandeepti Singh Rao.

It was a double crown for Sandeepti as she won the singles title, when Kaavya Sawhney retired after two sets. Sandeepti had lost the first set in an extended tie-break 11-13, but bounced back strongly to take the second set 6-1. Kaavya was unable to continue thereafter, owing to exhaustion under high humidity.

In the boys event, Uddayvir Singh and Ajay Singh won the under-18 and under-16 titles respectively.

The results (finals):

Boys: Under-18: Uddayvir Singh bt Shashikant Rajput 6-4, 6-3.

Under-16: Ajay Singh bt Ajay Kundu 7-6(6), 6-3.

Girls: Under-18: Sandeepti Singh Rao bt Kaavya Sawhney 6-7(11), 6-1 (retired).

Doubles: Vanshika Choudhary & Sandeepti Singh Rao bt Lakshmi Arunkumar & Sanvi Ahluwalia 6-1, 6-3.

Under-16: Lakshmi Arunkumar bt Tanushri Pandey 0-6, 6-3, 7-5.
