U-18 Tennis: Yashraj and Vaishnavi clinches Dalvi Memorial TrophyNovember 4, 2019, Mumbai
Yashraj Dalvi and Vaishnavi Adkar came out with their ace game to clinch titles in the 11th edition of Om Dalvi Memorial trophy all India ranking U-18 tennis tournament at the Maharashtra Police Gymkhana, Aundh.
The tournament saw a number of rain interruptions during all days and schedule of final matches schedule had to be delayed as clay courts were wet early in the morning.
Fifth seeded Dalvi, who loves to play on court surface, started slow, but controlled the game later on to score 7-6(12-10), 6-3 victory over Daksh Agarwal.
With rain interruptions in the first few days, matches were played in short sets (4 games per set) instead of regular set and it made the contest tricky.
Adkar had a tough time in the tournament as she played three set matches in first and second round and overcame Sania Deshpande 4-5 (4-7), 4-1, 4-1 and Ishita Jadhav 3-5, 5-4 (10-8), 4-0.
In the final, it was a familiar opponent, Bela Tamhankar, whom she rallied from one set down to set up a 0-6, 6-2, 7-5 victory.
The winners got 50 All India Tennis Association (AITA), while runners-up added 40 AITA points to their ranking.
