Gadde Ruthvika Shivani clinched Tata Open Title


Mumbai: Unseeded junior shuttler Ruthvika Shivani Gadde clinched the women's singles title in the USD 25,000 Tata Open India International Challenge badminton tournament, here on Sunday.

Earlier, rising 17-year-old Hyderabad shuttler Ruthvika, continued her impressive run by stunning fourth seed Arundhati Pantawane, on a comeback trail after a shoulder injury, 19-21 21-18 21-14 in the 50-minute long women's singles final.

It was the second time that Ruthvika had beaten her more experienced rival, having come out trumps in their previous meeting in the senior ranking tournament at Gandhidam in October.
