The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Sport -

New Delhi: Niki Poonacha and Sow­janya Bavisetti lived up to their top billing as the duo were crowned cham­pi­ons in the men’s and women’s sin­gles events re­spec­tively in the Fen­esta Open Na­tional Ten­nis Cham­pi­onship here on Satur­day.

Niki, who trains at the Ro­han Bopanna Ten­nis Academy in Ben­galuru, played smart ten­nis with great con­trol to beat Aryan Goveas 6-2, 7-6 in the men’s sin­gles fi­nal. The top seeded Niki showed flair and fi­nesse and looked ea­ger to cap­i­talise on the big chance which came his way.

Ris­ing star Sow­janya grabbed the big chance which came her way. Play­ing against four-time Fen­esta Open win­ner and sea­soned pro Prerna Bham­bri, Sow­janya was not bogged down by her op­po­nent’s rep­u­ta­tion.
