Rising Indian shuttler Lakshya sen avenged his defeat in last month’s World Juniors final in style with a straight game victory over Thailand’s Kunlavat Vitidsarn to lift the men’s singles title in the Tata Open India International Challenger here on Sunday.
Sen, beaten in three games in the defending champion in the world juniors in Canada last month, came out with all guns blazing to chalk out an impressive 21-16, 21-10 victory in just 35 minutes in a lop-sided final at the Cricket Club of India’s courts.
In the all-Indian women’s singles final, qualifier Ashmita Chaliha outclassed her eighth-seeded opponent Vrushali Gummadi 21-16, 21-13 in half-an hour to lift her first international crown.
India clinched another title when the unseeded doubles combine of Sumeeth Reddy and M. R. Arjun stunned the top-seeded Malaysian pairing of sze Fei Goh and Nur Izzuddin 21-10, 21-16 in a 35-minute title contest.
