Kaushik, Jha emerge champions in AITA talent series event

     New Delhi, Aug 20:

Agneya Kaushik and Ilina Jha played dominating tennis to lift the boys and girls singles titles respectively at the AITA Talent series tournament for the U-14 players, here today.

     Kaushik won the title clash for the loss of just three games as he outplayed qualifier Siddharth Karur 6-2 6-1.

     The girls final was also a lop-sided affair with Jha outclassing Bhagyamani Manshi 6-1 6-1.

     “Usually the players get only AITA rankings points but we also distributed gift voucher of Rs 6000 to the winner and of Rs 4000 to the runners-up,” said Vivek Satyajit, Director of the Grand Slam Foundation, which organised the event in collaboration with the ONGC.

     “It’s important to encourage new talent,” Satyajit added. PTI
