In the singles tie, Siddarth looked in complete control against R Kaushik and hardly broke a sweat as he took the first game 21-8.

The second game was one-sided too as Kaushik struggled against the power and guile of Siddarth, with the latter taking the second 21-8 to clinch his first crown of the day.
Siddarth then went on to take the doubles crown pairing up with Daniel SF.
The duo defeated Sahil Sipani and BR Sankeerth in straight games.

In a tight first game that could have gone either way, Siddarth and Daniel held their nerve towards the latter stages to claim it at 21-18.

The second game was much easier as the winning duo stepped on the pedal to take it comfortably 21-11.
In the girls under-16 singles category Vaishnavi Iyer defeated Devika Ravindra in straight games. The first game went to Vaishnavi 21-13, and even though Devika put up a little more fight in the second, she couldn’t do enough as Vaishnavi won it 21-17.
Mahima Agarwal won the girls under-13 title with a 21-15, 21-11 win over Chinmayi MS.
