Anchit storms into final

INDIA CLUB TENNIS

Guwahati, Dec. 28: Unseeded Anchit Talukdar kept his dream run going as he toppled second seed Raunak Bora in the under-18 boys’ semi-final of the 15th India Club-Royal Global School Open Tennis Championship at the India Club courts here today.

In an evenly-fought match, Anchit had the last laugh as he came back after losing the second set to triumph 6-3, 2-6, 6-1 and secure a place in the final.

In the other under-18 semi-final, Ankit Kashyap slogged in the first set but had a cakewalk in the second to outplay Vishal V. Saikia 7-5, 6-1.

Unseeded Swapnil Deka created the second upset on Day Six as he defeated second seed Arith Bhuyan 2-6, 6-2, 6-1 in the boys’ under-12 semi-finals.

In the other under-12 round of four match, top seed Ronit Bora outplayed third seed Debashish Medhi 6-2, 6-2.

In the girls’ under-18 semi-finals, the in-form Priyana Kalita blanked a lacklustre Chitrani Hazarika 6-0, 6-0, while Rizuwana Begum defeated Murchana Saharia 7-5, 6-3 to advance to the finals.

Top seed Priyana clinched a berth in the finals in the under-14 category as well, as she again displayed flawless tennis to get past Raina Zaffer 6-1, 6-0 in the semi-finals. In the other semi-final, Nazia Ahmed continued her good run to defeat Bhumika Gupta 6-4, 6-2.

In the boys’ under-14 semi-finals, Ankit Kashyap got the better of Ronit Bora 6-3, 6-3, while seventh seed Arnab J. Lahkar had to sweat it out to get past Aman Deo 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.
