Favourite Vasisht has it easy

Top seed C Vasisht had little trouble advancing to the second round in the boys’ category after he clinically put aside Rahul Shankar 6-0, 6-1 in the KTPPA-National Series under-16 tennis tournament here on Monday.

There was, however, disappointment in store for one of the local hopes as Sai Pranav Ponaka went down to Delhi’s Shramay Dhawav 3-6, 3-6 in the first round.

In the girls’ section, all seeded players got a first round bye, while Prarthana Prabhakar made it to the second round after registering a comfortable 6-0, 6-1 win over Riya C.
