Junior and Cadet Open


India’s Diya Parag Chitale claimed a second bronze medal in the Cadet Girls’ singles category to end her Croatia Junior and Cadet Open on a triumphant note.

The Mumbai girl took on World No. 11 Elizabet Abraamian of Russia in the semi-finals and came within a couple of points of entering her maiden final. However, after leading 11-6, 5-11, 11-7 and sitting pretty in the fourth game till the ninth point, she fumbled. She lost that game 9-11 and the decider 5-11.

Diya had earlier won a bronze in the Cadet Girls’ (U-15) team event, in the company of Russia’s Liubov Tentser, and had done well to make the main draw of the Junior Singles as well after winning three tough qualifying matches.
