11 year old Tanvi Patri of Odisha wins her maiden Under-13 girls singles at the 34th Under-13 National Badminton Championships, held at Lucknow on 23rd November 2022.
8th seeded Tanvi Patri took just 22 minutes to defeat 15th seeded Divyanshi Gautam of Uttar Pradesh 21-7, 21-10.
Earlier this month, Patri had bagged her maiden National U-13 Ranking Tournament Title in Maharashtra.
Tanvi was in a sublime touch throughout the Championships. Tossing and placing the shuttle well, Tanvi kept Divyanshi on her toes with cross-court volleys to take the first game. In the second, Divyanshi tried to narrow the lead after trailing 5-9, dribbling the shuttle at the net, Tanvi was too good in her placements and forced Divanshi to commit a series of unforced errors before wresting the game as well as match.
"I just kept hitting the shuttle at the right spot and didn't bother much about my opponent. Once I took the lead in the second game, I was sure of winning as I had a five-point lead at the break," said Patri after collecting a purse of Rs.60,000.
