Stephen Dylan scores a grand double at Talent Series

Bengaluru, 12 February, 2021   

Stephen Dylan Remedios while speaking about his game plan on the eve of the final, said that he was surely going to win. “I know I am going to win because I have a strong forehand and I know his (opponent’s) game very well.” It was with the same confidence that he entered the PET Courts here on Friday morning and exited as the Champion, his maiden U-12 title, after slaying the second seed Ranveer Singh Pannu in the finals of the Boys U-12 category of the AITA Talent Series 7 PET Cup hosted by Top Serve Tennis Academy. As if to mark the celebrations, he also teamed up with Diganth M to grab the doubles title as well.

In a minor upset, second seed Shravya Numburi of Tamil Nadu beat the top seed Karthika Padmakumar of Karnataka 6-3, 6-0 to pocket the Girls U-12 title.


The first set saw a see-saw battle between Dylan and Ranveer with the former gaining an advantage with a break in the very first game and going 2-0 up. The second seed fought back and restored parity at 2-2. Once again Dylan won the next three games with Ranveer returning the favour and making it 5-5 before the 11-year-old achieved a break in the 11th game and served out for the set honours.

The second set saw Dylan dominating the game with down the line winners and raced to a 5-2 lead before closing out the match at 6-3.
