Akarsh struggles past Yash to enter pre-quarters of Topspin AITA CS7 U-18 C’ship

Bengaluru, 22 November, 2021   

 

Akarsh Gaonkar seeded second struggled past challenger Yash P to enter the pre-quarterfinals of the Sportle Topspin AITA CS7 U-18 Championship here on Monday. Akarsh who had to go through the qualifying grind owing to his late entry was cruising well at 4-0 before his opponent staged a fightback and even came close to upsetting the fancied player. However, Akarsh held on to his nerves to win the match 9-7 in a truncated format owing to the threat of the rains.

Fifth seed Kriish Ajay Tyagi, fresh from a victory in the U-16 NS Championship in Hyderabad and third seed Mandeep Reddy cruised through their opening rounds. While Kriish inflicted a 9-1 victory over Viraaj, Mandeep was a 9-2 winner over Raheya N.
