Sejal Bhutada sustained a powerful recreation to beat the fifth seed Sharmada Balu 6-4, 6-2 within the girls’s quarterfinals of the Fenesta National tennis championship on the DLTA Complex on Wednesday.

The 14-year-old Sejal, ranked a modest 3290 on the planet amongst juniors, and a trainee of coach Hemant Bendrey in Pune, performed fearless, unmindful of the fame of her 30-year-old opponent in organising a quarterfinal in opposition to fourth seed Vaishnavi Adkar.

“Nothing worked for me today”, stated Sharmada, who has been specializing in the doubles with appreciable success within the worldwide circuit.

Sai Samhitha warded off a stiff problem from Vanshika Choudhary to make the quarterfinals in opposition to second seed Shrivalli Bhamidipaty.

Top seed Vaidehi Chaudhari will play Lakshmi Prabha, whereas the opposite quarterfinal can be between Sandeepti Singh Rao and Akanksha Nitture.
