Table Tennis: Manika and Archana Win Women’s Doubles Crown

Indian pair of Manika Batra and Archana Girish Kamath win the women’s doubles title in the WTT Contender tournament in Lasko on Sunday.

Manika and Archana defeated the Puerto Rican team of Melanie Diaz and Adriana Diaz in straight sets by 11-3, 11-8, 12-10.

The Indian duo was on top of its game from the beginning. Manika and Archana seldom had any problem in the first game as they established a healthy lead. The second game was on equal terms till 7-7 before Manika’s forehand and under-spin backhand serves backed by Archana’s quickness helped the team sail through.

The Puerto Rican sisters finally showed up in the third game with Melanie serving well and attacking with aplomb while Adriana played second fiddle. Melanie and Adriana had three-game points at 10-7, but Manika and Archana won five points on the trot to win their first crown as a pair.

Manika Batra and Archana Girish Kamath entered the finals of the women’s doubles event of the WTT Contender tournament after defeating the team of Wang Yidi and Liu Weishan by 11-6, 8-11, 11-6, 5-11, 11-8 in the semi-finals.
