<p>After advancing to the women’s singles final, Anmol Kharb faced Tanvi Sharma of Punjab in an exciting match. Kharb demonstrated her skill in a hotly fought battle by coming back from a first-game disadvantage to win the championship match with an incredible 15-21, 21-17, 16-8 victory.</p>
<p>After the first set of the almost hour-long women’s singles championship match, Tanvi was up against the Haryana shuttler. However, it didn’t deter Anmol, the top-ranked player in India for both the U-19 and U-17 BAI rankings, from using her skillful court angles and superb court coverage to leave her imprint in the next two games. Tanvi protested about injuries to match officials as Anmol was finally named the winner, even though they were already down 8-16 in the finale.</p>
<p>In the meanwhile, an upset occurred in the men’s singles championship match when Telangana’s unseeded Chirag Sen defeated the fourth-seeded Tharun M to win the national title. 21–14, 13–21, 21–9. India is ranked second by BAI. After losing the first game, Tharun swung the tide of the match in his favor in the second. However, Chirag had an incredible comeback in the final, using deft timing to establish his dominance.</p>
<p>Recently crowned Yonex-Sunrise Odisha Masters 2023 winners Dhruv Kapila and Tanisha Crasto controlled the match from the off in their mixed doubles summit encounter. In a quarter of an hour, they easily beat the sixth-seeded pair of Nitin Kumar and Navdha Manglam 21-13, 21-8 to go to their first national championship.</p>
<p>In the meanwhile, Priya Devi Konjengbam and Shruti Mishra won the women’s doubles championship after an incredible comeback victory against Ritika Thaker and Simran Singhi of Maharashtra in the final, which lasted an hour and eleven minutes. Ritika-Simran entered the final as the favorites, and they played well at first. However, Priya and Shruti maintained their poise and managed to overcome the fifth seeds in the following two games, even though they were down 10-15 in the decider at one point.</p>
<p>Men’s doubles final: K Pruthvi Roy-Suraj Goala, who train at the newly opened National Centre of Excellence in Guwahati, upset the odds by beating Krishna Prasad Garaga-Vishnuvardhan Goud Panjala 20-22, 24-22, 21-14. It was an exciting match. The first game was surrendered by the pair of Pruthvi and Suraj after an intense battle. Putting that aside, the aggressive pair gave it their all in the next two games to ultimately overcome the seasoned top-seeded pairing of Krishna and Vishnu.</p>
