“The week has been fantastic for me as far as my game is concerned. I have ironed out a few mistakes that I was committing last week and this helped me win the tournament,” said an emphatic Jain College student.

 

After both the players had held their serve until the fourth game in the opening set, it was the 22-year-old Rishi who drew the first blood achieving the crucial break in the fifth to win the set at 6-3. Keeping the momentum, Rishi broke his opponent’s serve as early as in the third game and broke again in the seventh game to lead 5-2. Egged on by a handful of supporters, the Jain college student served out for the match.
