Sunitha loses as Indian challenge ends
Seventh-seeded India’s Sunitha Rao lost to Ekaterina Dzehalevich of Belarus 5-7, 2-6 in the quarterfinals, as Indian challenge came to an end, of the ITF women’s tennis tournament played at the DLTA Complex here on Thursday.
Sunitha, who wasn’t feeling well due to stomach infection, started off well as she broke her opponent’s serve in the very first game but Dzehalevich levelled the terms in the very next game.
Dzehalevich, who had earlier beaten second-seeded Mathilde Johansson of France, was at her thumping best as she kept Sunitha on her toes all the time. Though she played marginally better than Sunitha, who looked little jittery in her approach. Sunitha committed lot of unforced errors that also gave leeway to her opponent to get through.
However, this wasn’t the end of road for Sunitha as she and her French partner Aurelie Vedy advanced into the doubles finals edging past the Czech pair of Veronica Chvojkova and Andrea Hlavackova 7-5,7-5.
