Ankita Raina of Oil and Natural Gas Corporatio­n (ONGC) and Ramkumar Ramanathan of Indian Oil emerged the champions in the 42nd PSPB interunit tennis tournament at the DLTA Complex on Friday.

With the whole tournament of team championsh­ip and individual events of singles and doubles packed in four days, the format had to be tweaked.

Thus, Ramkumar beat teammate Chirag Duhan 95 in the final for the men’s title. Ramkumar had earlier bested Vishnu Vardhan and Rithvik Bollipalli on the way to the final.

Ankita defeated Riya Bhatia of Indian Oil 95 in the women’s final. Incidental­ly, Ankita had beaten Riya in straight sets in a thriller during the team championsh­ip. Ankita had downed Prarthana Thombare in the semifinlas, while Riya Bhatia had beaten Riya Sachdeva.

The men’s doubles title was won by Vishnu Vardhan and Rithvik who beat Ramkumar and Chirag in the final. Rajkumar Dubey won the veterans title for Bharat Petroleum Corporatio­n Limited and joined with Monish Sharma to clinch the doubles title as well. BPCL had earlier won the team title as well.

Riya Sachdeva was presented the ‘most promising player’ award. The Chairman and Managing Director of the host, Engineers India Limited, Vartika Shukla, presented the trophies.
