Vaidehi Chaudhari triumphs in Asian Tour Women's Tennis
Vaidehi Chaudhari was swift on her feet and sharp with her strokes as she inflicted a rare 6-3, 6-4 defeat on Prerna Bhambri in the final of the $3,000 Asian Tour women’s tennis tournament at the DLTA Complex on Sunday.
Even though she was not that quick on her feet or that much error free as she would have liked, the 27-year-old Prerna was quite competitive as she made the 19-year-old Vaidehi fight for the points.
It was perhaps a bitter pill to swallow for Prerna who had won four National titles on these courts, and had reached a career-best rank of 358, but there was no denying the fact that Vaidehi was the better player.
Incidentally, it was the second title on the Asian Tour for Vaidehi who had won the last tournament in Pune in May.
The title was worth $450 and the runner-up collected $300.
The results (final): Vaidehi Chaudhari bt Prerna Bhambri 6-3, 6-4.
