Young Sujan bags grand double

Sujan Bharadwaj claimed a grand double, winning titles in the boys’ junior and sub-junior categories in the Dr MS Ramaiah Memorial State-ranking table tennis tournament at the Malleswaram Association here on Monday.

In the Junior final, Sujan overwhelmed Krishna S 11-3, 11-9, 11-8, 11-8. He then powered past Aakash KJ 11-9, 11-6, 11-4 to wear the Sub-junior crown.

In the Junior girls’ final, Yashaswini G brushed aside Aditi P Joshi 11-5, 11-4, 11-6, 14-12 to win the title.

Though Kalyani put up a brace fight, she was no match for an in-form Yashaswini. She was stretched the distance in the opening set, but that didn’t seem to bother Yashaswini much as she raced ahead to take a 3-0 lead in no time.

Later, in the fourth game, though Kalyani once again came close to getting something out of the tie, Yashaswini held her nerves to win the fourth set 13-11 and pocket the title.
