Penang Open finals

After the success in the Malaysian Open in the under-15 section recently, this Chennai Church Park School student had another grand moment when she won the under-15 title in the Penang Open thereafter. Aparajitha defeated Shria Khatri 7-9, 3-9, 9-6, 9-0, 9-2 in the final. It proved a memorable finish for this 10th standard student, who trains at the ICL Academy here.

A member of the Indian team to the Asian junior championship to be held in Busan in a couple of weeks, this twin-success should augur well for Aparajitha, who will be playing in the under-15 section. Another success story from Penang was that of Kush Kumar in the under-13 category. He won the title beating Gurshan Singh of Malaysia 9-4, 9-2, 9-7
