Wang, Yang fancied

The competition is a test event for the October 3-14 Commonwealth Games.
The top billing in the boys event has gone to Chinese Chuhan Wang, who last week lost here the high-quality ITF boys’ final against compatriot Bowen Ouyang, who is seeded second in the 64-player draw.

In the girls section, Chinese Zi Yang, seeded fourth, will be bolstered by her last week’s straight-set triumph over India’s Kyra Shroff in the girls’ ITF event. Shroff, who made a last minute entry in this tournament, has been handed a wild card and she is seeded 10th.
National champion Ankita Raina will be looking to go far while Natasha Palha would like to stretch her last week’s good form after her quarterfinal appearance. Among India boys, fifth-seeded Ronit Bisht, who lost to Chuhan in the semifinals last week, would get another chance to prove his mettle. Sai Nakireddi, the highest seeded Indian at fourth place, is also in good touch.
