Arjun Manikandan quelled the challenge of Aarush Malannavar to advance to the semifinals of Boys Category in the KSLTA AITA Talent Series-3 U-12 tennis tournament being played at the KSLTA Tennis courts here on Tuesday. The quarterfinal match assumed importance as Arjun took on Aarush who had created ripples earlier in the morning when he had shocked the top seed Ruhan Komandur in a last-16 encounter. Aarush did not show the same form and went down to Arjun tamely 2-8 in the quarterfinals.
Meanwhile in the Girls category, Reet Jhawar had upset the second seed Theertha AN 8-3 in the pre-quarterfinal bout but later went down to sixth seed Sanmitha Harini of Tamil Nadu 2-8 in the last eight stage.
The semifinals and finals will be played on the morrow.
