'My strategy paid off'

Young table tennis sensation Soumyajit Ghosh feels his strategy to avoid undue pressure worked well for him in the tournament and bagged him the National crown at such a young age.

The 19-year-old Ghosh, who competed in the London Olympics last year, overpowered the experienced Achantha Sharath Kamal 4-2 to win his maiden National title on Saturday.
“I am very happy. It’s an awesome feeling. It feels really good to beat a great player like him (Sharath),” Ghosh.

“I was confident going into the tournament as a number one ranked player. But I did not want to take any pressure on myself,” he said adding that he was up for the tough challenge as he had prepared hard both physically and mentally.
